CHBC Re-Gathering – September 13, 2020 
The church is not a building people meet together in, but a people who gather to worship Jesus Christ as Lord. 

CHBC is committed to Equip the Saints to the glory of God. The church was given the task to make disciples, teaching them to observe everything Jesus commands (Matthew 28:18-20). Teaching is a function that the church must be about. Health, unified churches are built on sound doctrine. We are grateful for the opportunity to begin Re-Grouping into Sunday School for all ages this week. Look above to find a link on the CHBC Re-Grouping Plan.  

If you gather with us in person please know that we will continue physical distancing and sanitizing protocols, and that 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. 

Ekklesia – September 13, at 5 PM  Sing and Celebrate 
We received so many positive comments about our Sing and Celebrate Service a couple of weeks ago that we will join together again this Sunday night to celebrate what God is doing in our lives. If you are able please join us for a night for the church to celebrate who God is and what He has done. 

Midweek Prayer Gathering – Each Wednesday at 6 PM 
A few weeks ago, Pastor Mark preached a sermon entitled, “Pray”. You can watch olisten to that sermon here: Matthew 7:7-12, Pray, by Pastor Mark DeMoss. In that message Pastor Mark said that 2020 was God’s call for the church to pray. He challenged the church to be serious about prayer and said that CHBC would be looking for ways to pray for fervently and intentionally. Each Wednesday night at 6 PM will be times of prayer. This church family prayer gathering will be available for any who are not serving or participating in AWANA. Join us in room 221 for a time of prayer. 

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, Pastor from London)

Prayer 
To what do we cling when we see the tragedies of life come upon us? Promises like this one found in Isaiah. 
Isaiah 46:4 
Even to your old age I will be the same, and even to your graying years I will bear you! I have done it, and I will carry you; and I will bear you and I will deliver you. 

     Mark D. DeMoss, Senior Pastor

     Equipping…Exalting…Extending

            For the Glory of God

AWANA
Mrs. Cheryl Ross and her AWANA Commanders have been working diligently to devise an altered AWANA program to allow a way for our children to return to AWANA. A plan that will take into consideration ways to lower the risk of spreading germs, while still allowing the children to learn the Bible, hear God’s Word, and have interactive game time. You can still register for AWANA online at CHBC AWANA Registration.

CHBC Re-Gathering – September 6, 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 Christ as Lord. The people known as Capitol Hill Baptist Church call that Exalting Christ. How we gather, where we gather, and when we gather can change. But exalting Christ is an essential purpose of what the church is to be and to do. We are Christ-exalters. And we exalt Christ. It is our person, our purpose, and our practice.
If you gather with us in person please know that we will continue physical distancing and sanitizing protocols, and that 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).

Quotes from Church History
John Newton: “When we look at the ungodly, we are not to hate them – but to pity them, mourn over them, and pray for them. Nor have we any right to boast over them; for, by nature, and of ourselves, we are no better than they.” – John Newton (1724-1807, Pastor, hymn author, former slave boat captain)

Prayer
What should I do? Where should I go? What do we do next? Have you asked the Lord, who leads us in the way we should go? Read Isaiah 48:17, and then ask Him.
Isaiah 48:17
“Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you to profit, Who leads you in the way you should go.”
