CHBC Worship for 1/24/21
The church is not a building people meet together in, but a people who gather to worship Jesus Christ as Lord.

There are three pillars upon which the purpose of CHBC stands. Our goals to equip believers, exalt Christ, and extend the gospel rest upon three convictions: to be Biblically-Modeled, to be Mission-Minded, and to be Multi-Cultural. The first of these three convictions is to be Biblically-Modeled. You do not reach spiritual ends with worldly means. We want to equip, exalt, and extend based upon the precepts and principles of the Bible, the life of Christ, and the patterns of the New Testament church. To remove this pillar would undermine the integrity of what it means to be a church.

Even in these strange days we want to stay central to our mission. We must not allow circumstances to rob us of our convictions. As we gather again for worship this Lord’s Day may it be to recommit ourselves to the ways of God and the work of God.

If you are not able to attend in person, then join us for our worship 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.

We are continuing to seat by physically distancing (seating every other row and leaving a 3-chair gap between family units, as well as taking extra steps in cleaning and sanitizing. You are more than welcome to wear a face covering at all times. We are also providing our overflow seating in the Activity Center where we ask that all participants wear a face covering during the duration of the service.

Adult Mid-week Service: Generational Reproducers of the Faith
Psalm 145:4, “One generation shall praise Your works to another, and shall declare Your mighty acts.” This past Wednesday night Pastor Mark asked those in attendance to recount some of the mighty acts of God. The group heard testimony from Scripture and from personal stories of seeing God’s mighty and faithful hand. When we are reminded of the God’s mighty acts it fuels our praise. Our praise of God’s work in our homes and in our church helps our children believe God is real. If you do not serve in AWANA or assist in the Student Ministry, please join us on Wednesdays in Room 221 as Pastor Mark and his wife, Susan, equip us to be champions of generational reproducers of the faith.

 

Sunday School
There are Sunday School Classes currently meeting in person at CHBC. We are also providing material for you to use at home if you are unable to attend an in-person small group. Some of the locations of classes have changed, so please check with the teacher, a greeter, or a staff member if you are confused about where your class may meet. We have adjusted our rooms so that physical distancing can be maintained within each class setting. Please let us know if you would like a print version of the Lifeway curriculum from your Sunday School class for home use. Below is a printable version of a series from Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, DC.

Quotes from Church History
Amy Carmichael: “If the praise of others elates me and their blame depresses me; if I cannot rest under misunderstanding without defending myself; if I love to be loved more than to love, to be served more than to serve, then I know nothing of Calvary love." Amy Carmichael (1867-1951 born in Ireland, and missionary to India for over 50 years)

Prayer
Church, pray for one another today! Pray that your brothers and sisters in Christ would not sow to their flesh, but sow to the Spirit. Pray that we each invest more time, energy, and concern for God and His Kingdom than we do in this present world.

Galatians 6:7-8

“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.”

Sanctity of Human Life Sunday
This Sunday, January 17, we have the opportunity to see the Mobile Pregnancy Center Unit that is operated by Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children, and Hope Pregnancy Centers. This unit will be on our property Sunday morning for you to tour before and after Worship. We will also hear a brief testimony from Kathy Gibson, the mobile unit ministry director for Hope Pregnancy Centers. This is a way for us to support the fight for the ending of abortion, and healing for those who carry post-abortive emotional and spiritual wounds.

Generational Reproducers of the Faith
When we think about our own part in the call of the church to proclaim the mighty acts of God to the next generation, it can be a bit overwhelming. If you are like many, you begin to reflect on your own failures, or how insignificant your own contributions seem. You may wonder, “why would others younger than me want to follow in my footsteps of faith?” Pastor Mark and his wife, Susan, discussed that this past Wednesday night. They reminded the group of God’s grace in our failures, and of the truth that God does not leave us alone in our little bag of resources, but through the Spirit equips us to accomplish the task of giving a vital faith away to the next generation.

 CHBC Worship for 1/17/21
The church is not a building people meet together in, but a people who gather to worship Jesus Christ as Lord.

The purpose of CHBC stands on top of a necessary foundation. Pastor Mark calls these the Piers of CHBC. Those three piers are The Glory of God, The Centrality of Scripture, and the Lordship of Jesus Christ. If the church operates apart from this foundation, then the actions and activities of the church are no different than a civic club. The church is the family of God founded by Him for His purposes, through Jesus Christ, and guided by the Holy Scriptures. This is why we gather, and why we desire to bring others into the household of God.

If you are not able to attend in person, then join us for our worship 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.

Quotes from Church History
Martyn Lloyd-Jones: “Our Lord does not promise to change life for us; He does not promise to remove difficulties and trials and problems and tribulations; He does not say that He is going to cut out all the thorns and leave the roses with their wonderful perfume. No; He faces life realistically, and tells us that these are things to which the flesh is heir, and which are bound to come. But He assures us that we can so know Him that, whatever happens, we need never be frightened, we need never be alarmed.” – D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981 Welsh Ministry, and pastor of Westminster Chapel of London for 30 years)

Prayer
Pray for our nation. There is so much hate. As believers we must walk in love. Pray for people to come to faith in Christ and begin to walk in love with us.

1 John 4:20-21

“If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen. And this commandment we have from Him, that the one who loves God should love his brother also.”
