Worship at CHBC – A Reminder
The church is not a building people meet together in, but a people who gather to worship Jesus Christ as Lord. The church is a group of Christians who covenant together to hear the right preaching of the Word and symbolize their commitment to Christ through the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. In Baptism one joins the many, and in the Lord’s Supper, the many express their oneness. A family of believers committed to Christ and one another, not a group of Christian consumers trying to fulfill their own needs. As we gather, please remember:
- Be aware of your own health as you prepare to come to Sunday School and worship
- Worship with us online if you are experiencing the symptoms of COVID-19, or other transmissible illnesses
- While you are present wash your hands, and do not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth

Scripture of the Month
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. The Scripture we will say and memorize for the month of January is Genesis 1:1-2, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.” You can 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 January 20, 1569, Miles Coverdale died in London. Coverdale produced the first complete printed English-language Bible. Learn more about what happened on this date in church history by following this link: Today in Church History.
We will encounter trials. And God uses them in the molding of us into the image of Christ. But we should pray for one another while we are going through trials for God’s help, mercy, and quick end of the trial, as well as for what God wants to produce in us through the trial.
“Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.”
Mark D. DeMoss, Senior Pastor
For the Glory of God
