Fall Back 1 Hour
This Saturday night before you go to bed do not forget to set your clocks back one hour as Daylight Savings Time will end at 2 AM. We want you to be ready at the right time for Lord’s Day Worship.

Greet and Treat
This is our 15th year to do Greet and Treat. Greet and Treat is a way for CHBC to use the night of Halloween to be in our neighborhoods sharing the good news of Christ. We have put together outreach bags for your family to take around with you. These bags will be available on Sunday morning following the AM Worship Service. While many children in our neighborhoods are going to Trick or Treat, we will be going to homes ready to answer the door so we can Greet and Treat. Many of us will also be ready to receive children and families as they walk the neighborhood. Pastor Mark’s home will serve popcorn, hot chocolate, and have games to play as we hand out information about the gospel and the church. How will you Greet and Treat this year?

CHBC Re-Gathering – November 1, 2020
The church is not a building people meet together in, but a people who gather to worship Jesus Christ as Lord.

The church gathers for worship. Worship is not just singing songs together. Worship is our response of obedience to Christ’s commands. Therefore, our worship includes those things we outline within our purpose statement. We are equipped in knowing God, His will, and His ways through Bible study. We exalt Christ as we make Him the focus of our attention, and as we see Him as the fountainhead to all our needs. We worship as we obey the Great Commandment and Great Commission in extending the gospel to our neighbors and the nations. Worship is not a Sunday activity. We gather on Sundays to worship Jesus Christ as Lord. But worship does not end when we leave.

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. 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. We will continue to send you links to use on your own at your home as well. You can find those below:

Quotes from Church History
Martin Luther: is credited with saying this at the Diet of Worms, “I cannot and will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I stand, I can do no other, so help me God. Amen.” – Martin Luther (1483-1546, German Minister and father of the Protestant Reformation)

Prayer
Pray boldly for what you know to be God’s will. Nothing stands between you and God, other than our Savior who is there only as our mediator.

Romans 8:37-39

37 But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

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

CHBC Members Meeting
    Capitol Hill Baptist Church is a Baptist congregational church. Which means our members meet on a regular basis to review our financial status, elect leaders, call pastors, and make other important directional decisions. We appoint faithful committee members, and staff to make many decisions, or bring needed recommendations to the church body during quarterly members meetings. Our next members meeting is this Sunday night at 5 PM.

  We will again make the meeting available via Zoom for those unable to attend in person due to the COVID-19 heath crisis. You will be able to observe and participate in the meeting. You will receive an email with the Zoom link, and attachments for the needed documents. If you do not receive that email, please contact the church office by noon Friday. Thank you to all of our committees and staff who have worked to prepare us for our meeting.

Retirement Reception
Pastor Isaias is retiring. His last Sunday is this week, October 25, 2020. He has served with us for almost 6 years as the Associate Pastor of Hispanic Ministries. We will have a reception in the Activity Center Sunday evening following the Members Meeting. Light snacks will be available. You may want to bring a card or gift to express your appreciation.

CHBC Re-Gathering – October 25, 2020
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 people who gather to worship Jesus. If Jesus were just a man this would be a ludicrous action. Why should people gather to worship a man who lived 2,000 years ago? They probably would not, and I can tell you for certain that they should not. But Jesus is not just a man. He is the God-man. He is the Son of God. He is the Lord. As such, we should worship Him. For He alone is worthy of all glory. CHBC worship Christ personally and corporately this Lord’s Day!

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.

Quotes from Church History
Martin Luther: “Faith is a living, daring confidence in God's grace, so sure and certain that a man could stake his life on it a thousand times.” – Martin Luther (1483-1546, German Minister and father of the Protestant Reformation)

Prayer
Prayer is an act of faith. We pray because we are dependent on and believing in God’s grace. We ask God for things that we have confidence in His desire to give them. We pray because we know God is good and all-powerful. We pray because we know God is love. We ask in faith in this God.

Hebrews 11:1-3

“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the men of old gained approval. By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible.”
