Lottie Moon Christmas Offerings
Have you dropped off your cards at the Lottie Moon Post Office? Have you checked to see if you have any cards to pick up? If you are not in the building on a Sunday, just call the church office and we can send them to you, or you can stop by during the week to drop off or pick up. Your gifts to Lottie Moon, the Southern Baptist International Mission Board offering, are all spent on the mission field. The cooperative efforts of Baptists around the world empowers the greatest mission’s agency in America. You can give by designating an online gift, or your check to either Lottie Moon, or World Missions Offering. The post office will be available from December 6 through the end of the year. You can find the post office in the main hall near the entry to the Preschool Victory Village. To give follow this link: Missions. Choose either World Missions or Lottie Moon.
We have sponsored more than 50 children at this point! And Angel Tree has given us the names of several more children you can sponsor. Angel Tree is a ministry started by Chuck Colson and Prison Fellowship to provide Christmas presents to the children of people who are incarcerated. The point of Angel Tree is to keep a bridge between the incarcerated parent and their children, while sharing the gospel with both the prisoner and the child. Prison Fellowship has requirements for inmates to qualify and works with the caregivers of the children.

CHBC Re-Gathering – December 13, 2020
The church is not a building people meet together in, but a people who gather to worship Jesus Christ as Lord.
Luke 2:10 says, “And so the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people;’”. Good news for all the people. This is the Christmas message. We have a gospel that is available to all and effective to everyone who believes in Jesus Christ. And this is a good news that is to be told to the world. CHBC exists to glorify God by extending the gospel. To whom have you extended the good news to this week?
We are currently offering our weekly service by live stream through the CHBC Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/chbcokc/. We are also providing seating in the Activity Center for Sunday School and Worship services, and we are asking that any who attend in the Activity Center wear a face covering.
If you gather with us in the Worship Center know that we are physically distancing and sanitizing. You are more than welcome to wear a face covering at all times. Please RSVP, especially if you will be using ETC (Extended Teaching Care for 3 years and younger). The RSVP helps us be prepared for overflow seating, for children in ETC, and for seating in the Worship Center. Thank you for understanding the need to physically distance and to RSVP. Click the link to go the CHBC Re-Gathering RSVP page on the website: CHBC Re-Gathering RSVP. If you forget to RSVP or you meet someone you want to invite to worship with us, please still attend and do not worry about telling them how to RSVP. We will accommodate everyone either in the main Worship Center or in our overflow rooms.
Christmas Drive-Thru Fellowship – December 17, 2020 from 6:30 – 7:30 PM
On Thursday evening, December 17, the CHBC staff wants to host you to a drive-thru church-wide fellowship. We encourage you to drive through the church parking lot where we will have Christmas music, serve hot chocolate, and have a gift for each car that drives by. Encourage your kids to make a Merry Christmas sign for us and others to see. Many of our regular holiday gatherings have had to be cancelled for this year, but we wanted a way to have our whole church participate in something together.
Christmas Activities for CHBC
CHBC is currently Re-Grouping into Sunday School. Each class begins at 9 AM. You can read the Re-Grouping Plan for Sunday School here: CHBC Sunday School Re-Grouping. There are some changes to where groups meet, so please read the plan carefully. Lifeway has changed the way they are providing online resources. We have determined it is no longer cost effective to provide links to online Sunday School. However, we will continue to offer a printable curriculum from CHBC in Washington DC, and we can provide our Sunday School Literature to you by mail or can drop it by your home. Please let us know if you would like a print version of the Lifeway curriculum from your Sunday School class for home use.
Quotes from Church History
Lottie Moon: “How many there are ... who imagine that because Jesus paid it all, they need pay nothing, forgetting that the prime object of their salvation was that they should follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ in bringing back a lost world to God.” – Lottie Moon (1840-1912, Baptist Missionary to China)
