CHBC Re-Gathering – December 20, 2020
The church is not a building people meet together in, but a people who gather to worship Jesus Christ as Lord.
Matthew 1:20-21 says, “But when he had thought this over, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife; for the Child who has been conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a Son; and you shall name Him Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.” There is no greater reason to worship God than for this very fact. He sent His Son to be the Savior of our sins. His name means Savior, His work was to seek and save the lost, His death was act of our salvation, and His resurrection confirms God’s commitment to save us. We exalt Christ because He alone saves.
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.

Sunday School
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.

Prayer
Pray today for the many people in your life and in our world, who need to hear the good news of a Savior. And thank God for those, like Lottie Moon, who are still answering the call to go to those places where the name of Jesus is not known.
Matthew 1:20-21
“But when he had thought this over, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife; for the Child who has been conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a Son; and you shall name Him Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.””

Angel Tree
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. To sponsor a child through CHBC and Angel Tree follow this URL: https://tinyurl.com/chbcokcangeltree2020, and enter the code: TTOYE. Watch this video to learn more: Angel Tree

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.

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.

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)
