The Vision of CHBC – Exalting Christ
When we talk about Exalting Christ as part of the purpose of CHBC, we are drawing on Hebrews 10:23-25. Which reveals a pattern of personal holiness derived from and encouraged by the corporate gathering of the body of Christ. So, we endeavor to pursue personal and practical holiness, as well as the public praise of God. Remember this: the church is not a building people meet together in, but a people who gather to worship Jesus Christ as Lord.
When you are worshipping on Sunday you will notice that the platform is still undergoing an expansion. This is to allow more space for the choir, orchestra, and band to all be on the platform, as well as provide a more flexible area for other worship events. While most of the carpentry work is complete, we are waiting for the final work of the electrician, AVL installments, delivery of choir risers, and installation of the carpet throughout the worship center. Thank you for your patience with a less than ideal worshipping platform.
Student Ministry – Spring Retreat
The 7th-12th grade ministry of CHBC will be on retreat March 25-26 at CrossTimbers. Please pray for the participants, servants, and leaders as they spend two days in worship, play, and learning.

Resurrection Celebration with CHBC – Good Friday 6-8 PM
We believe every Sunday is Resurrection Sunday, but we also think it is appropriate to have a date on the calendar that draws special attention to the most significant event in human history – the resurrection of Jesus Christ. We will mark our celebration of the resurrection two ways. First will be Good Friday at 6 PM. We will be showing the movie Sabina. This movie is about Sabina Wurmbrand, the wife of Voice of the Martyrs founder, Richard Wurmbrand. It will tell you more of their story as the Nazi came to power in Europe. Learn more about this movie at The Sabina Movie website. We will also offer our elementary age children a different movie option from the VOM animated films for parents who are not ready to show your children the Sabina film. There is childcare for children 3 years old and younger, but you must register for this childcare. Visit our website to register for childcare.
Resurrection Day Worship – April 17
We celebrate the resurrection of Jesus every Sunday, but we think it is appropriate to have a date on the calendar to celebrate the resurrection in a special way. We will celebrate resurrection Sunday with a pancake breakfast from 9-10 AM in the Activity Center, and with worship at 10:15 AM in the Worship Center for our English-speaking service and Solomon’s Porch for our Spanish-speaking service.
Scripture of the Month
Psalm 100:3, “Know that the Lord Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.” Each week CHBC says aloud a passage of Scripture during our morning worship gathering. This is done for two reasons. First, we are commanded in Scripture to encourage one another with the Word of God. Second, we want to emphasize the spiritual discipline of Scripture memory. Receive a text to your phone with this verse set to music by texting the word “CHBCVERSE” to the number (302) 207-SONG (7664).
A Moment in Church History
On March 24, 1922, Ida Scudder missionary and physician sees the first medical class of graduates from the school she founded in Vellore, India, complete their education. “The medical school she founded will become one of Asia’s foremost teaching hospitals.” Learn more about what happened on this date in church history by following this link: Today in Church History.
Prayer begins in adoration and ends in thanksgiving. Adore God for being a God of mercy. Thank God for giving you eternal life.
“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
