DISCIPLESHIP RESOURCES

Do you want to do spiritual good for other people? I think we would all say yes to that question. It should be normal for us to have spiritual conversations with those we attend church with. Sometimes we just do not know how to get that kind of conversation interjected into what we are already talking about. You can use these resources as a place to begin. Simply ask them if they read one of these articles that was sent to them, or if they have listened to one of these podcasts. If not, you can encourage them to do so. You could use this intentionally as a way to disciple one another by meeting for coffee to discuss what is being shared here. Use this for your spiritual good, and then do spiritual good to someone else.

The Vision of CHBC – Multi-Cultural

The terms “multicultural” and “diversity” are popular in secular institutions, and somewhat suspect in traditional evangelicalism. But they are just words and can be helpful as a reminder of how the heavenly church will exist. When we are in heaven, we will worship with diverse believers from cultures far removed from our own by time and location. The local church should be a reflection of that as much as the community in which that church allows. If the community in which a local church exists has people from different ethnicities, socioeconomics, and ages, then the local church gathered for worship ought to reflect the same diversity and do so with a unity that reflects God and the pattern of the early New Testament Church. This is when we see how true this statement is: the church is not a building people meet together in, but a people who gather to worship Jesus Christ as Lord.

 

Time Change – Set Clocks Ahead One Hour

While we sleep Saturday night our phones will jump ahead one hour. Plan now for a little less sleep and set your standard clocks ahead before you go to bed so you are awake and ready for Sunday School and Church as Daylight Savings Time begins.

 

Bring Spring – March 13-15

The Bring Spring Schedule can be found online under the Activities tab of the CHBC website.

 

No Wednesday Ministries or Activities during Spring Break

Wednesday, March 16, there will not be any of our regular midweek ministries or activities due to local schools observing their Spring Break. We encourage our leaders and families to enjoy a break from the routine. We look forward to resuming our normal midweek schedule on March 23.

 

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 10, 1747, “John Newton, a sailor on a slave ship, is converted to Christianity during a huge storm at sea. He eventually becomes an Anglican clergyman, the author of the famous hymn “Amazing Grace” and a zealous abolitionist. ‘That 10th of March is a day much to be remembered by me; and I have never allowed it to pass unnoticed since the year 1748. For on that day the Lord came from on high and delivered me out of deep waters.’” Learn more about what happened on this date in church history by following this link: Today in Church History.

Prayer

Pray for one another to be faithful in sharing the gospel and defending the faith. We are living in a day when we must think carefully about how to walk in grace and truth.

1 Peter 3:15

“but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence;”
