The Vision of CHBC – Equipping Believers

Ephesians 4:11-16 makes it clear that the body is to be built up into maturity which is measured as being like Christ. That work is to be done by the members of the body of Christ, who are equipped for the ministry by their pastors and teachers. Biblical instruction is not just about head knowledge. We want to equip the saints of CHBC to know God, to know His Word, and to know His providential work throughout history. We equip believers to be in pursuit of holiness, so their life and character is being conformed to the image of Christ. And we equip for the work of ministry, so we are doing what Christ has called the believer to do as male and female followers, as husbands and wives, as parents, as employees or employers, and as alien citizens of this world. Church is so much more than a place or set of events: the church is not a building people meet together in, but a people who gather to worship Jesus Christ as Lord.

 

Wednesday Night Ministries Resume

March 23, we resume all regular midweek activities and ministries. Please check the schedule and join us as we continue the work of disciple-making during our midweek gatherings. You can see our schedule here: CHBC Schedule.

 

Platform Remodel

As we continue with the Platform remodel, you can visibly see the change to the size and shape of the platform. We are still waiting for completion of staining, painting, and the final electrical installation. We are also waiting for the delivery of carpet so that an install date can be set. The company building the removable choir risers is waiting for the foam walls to be delivered so that they can complete construction of the riser and ship the risers to CHBC. The timeline for these final steps happen in mid-April.

 

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 18, 1980, “Muslim students at the University of Alexandria threaten Mr. Edmonds, a Christian student, demanding he denounce his faith or die. When he refuses, they beat him unconscious and leave him with a broken arm.” Learn more about what happened on this date in church history by following this link: Today in Church History.

 

Prayer

Pray for the spiritual growth of your brothers and sisters in Christ. Your growth blesses them, and their growth blesses you.

Eph. 4:11-12

“And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ;”

DISCIPLESHIP RESOURCES

I hope many of you have enjoyed a break. As this week of rest ends, what have you done to promote the normalcy of spiritual conversations with your family, friends, or co-workers? You might consider forwarding this list along to them, and just saying, “Hey, let’s get coffee next week and talk about one of these articles or podcasts.” This might begin a very fruitful discipleship relationship with one of your children, your spouse, or a co-worker.
