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.

 

Platform Remodel

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. Deanna Huff will be training on matters of worldview that our students face on a daily basis, and how to address these issues from a biblical stance.

 

CrossTimbers – Children’s Camp

This children’s camp is for children who will have completed the 3rd-6th grade at the end of this school term. The dates are June 20-23, but registration is necessary by April 1. Please contact Mrs. Cheryl, Director for Preschool and Children’s Ministries at , or visit the website at: CrossTimbers Registration.

 

Explore CHBC – March 27, April 3, & April 10

Explore CHBC is a three-week orientation to membership at Capitol Hill Baptist Church. We believe church membership is biblical and practical. We want to help you belong to the body of Christ and learn to love and serve your brothers and sisters in Christ out of mutual commitment for one another. Learn more about church membership by attending these three one-hour sessions. 9 AM, Sunday mornings on March 27, April 3, and April 10. Visit the website at CHBC Explore.

 

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

Prayer begins in adoration and ends in thanksgiving. Adore God for being a God of mercy. Thank God for giving you eternal life.

Romans 6:23

“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

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.

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;”
