Poinsettias for Sale 
One of the fun and exciting things that is a tradition at CHBC is decorating the building for Christmas. We use the Sunday afternoon following services on the Sunday after Thanksgiving to work together to place wreaths, nativity sets, and Christmas trees throughout the building. We also use poinsettias. You can purchase a poinsettia to be used for décor in honor of a loved one. After the holidays you may take your poinsettia home with you. Poinsettia sales will begin this Sunday in the foyer. 
 
Angel Tree 
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 – November 22, 2020 
The church is not a building people meet together in, but a people who gather to worship Jesus Christ as Lord. 
Not a building, but a people! People who are taught by God through the Bible. Part of the mission of the church is to equip believers to know God through His Word. This is why we have made it a priority to continue teaching and preaching, while providing at home equipping resources, and online services. We cannot abandon our mission. 
Remember that we are 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 this space wear a face covering for the duration of that time. 
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 in order to protect others. 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.

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.

Quotes from Church History 
John Robinson: “So many there… as saw the evil these things… and whose hearts the Lord had touched with heavenly zeal for His truth; they shook off this yoke of antichristian bondage; and as the Lord’s free people; joined themselves (by a covenant of the Lord) into a church estate, in the fellowship of the gospel to walk in all his ways… whatsoever it should cost them.”  John Robinson (1575-1625, Pastor to the Pilgrims before they came to America in 1620)

Prayer 
This Psalm was part of the Pilgrim Thanksgiving after coming to Plymouth. On November 12, 1620, before departing their ship they had their first church service in the new world. 
Psalm 100 
“Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth. 
2 Serve the Lord with jubilation; 
Come before Him with rejoicing. 
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. 
4 Enter His gates with thanksgiving, 
And His courtyards with praise. 
Give thanks to Him, bless His name. 
5 For the Lord is good; 
His mercy is everlasting 
And His faithfulness is to all generations.”

IDOP – International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church
This Sunday morning, we will spend some time thinking about and praying for brothers and sisters in Christ around the world that face religious persecution. We have direct contact with people who serve persecuted Christians overseas, and who have family members living in countries of persecution. We also face the threat in our own country and in our own lifetime of seeing religious persecution. As faithful followers of Christ we need to be aware and prayerful of religious persecution.

CHBC Re-Gathering – November 8, 2020
The church is not a building people meet together in, but a people who gather to worship Jesus Christ as Lord.

This year we have learned what many in other countries experience on a regular basis – limited gatherings for worship. We have been reminded of how much we miss gathered worship, how much we need the body of Christ, and how important the family of faith is to our lives.

If you gather with us in person know that we are physically distancing and sanitizing. You are more than welcome to wear a face covering in order to protect others. 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.

Quotes from Church History
Jim Elliot: as written in his person journal, “'He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.” – Jim Elliot (1927-1956, Missionary and Martyr)

Prayer
Pray for those who today are imprisoned or dying for the cause of Christ. Pray for the families and churches of men and women being persecuted and martyred today for living faithfully for Jesus.

Hebrews 11:37-38

“They were stoned, they were sawn in two, they were tempted, they were put to death with the sword; they went about in sheepskins, in goatskins, being destitute, afflicted, tormented 38 (people of whom the world was not worthy), wandering in deserts, on mountains, and sheltering in caves and holes in the ground.”

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. We will host and Angel Tree this year instead of assisting with Samaritan’s Purse.

Thanksgiving Banquet
We will not be hosting our annual Thanksgiving Banquet this year. After evaluating necessary safety measures, potential drop in attendance, and the cost of meal prep it was determined it was best to delay this banquet and wait for an opportunity in the future to have a large fellowship meal together. God bless you during your own and your family Thanksgiving celebrations.
