CHBC Re-Gathering – August 16, 2020
The church is not a building people meet together in, but a people who gather to worship Jesus Christ as Lord.
The people of God gather and invite guests to join them because they want others to know what God has done for us. We want to praise Him for His work through the cross, and in our lives, and we want to tell others who He is. There is purpose in our gathering. So, please join us and invite others to be a part. We hope it will be in person, but during this time of COVID-19, at least please join us through Facebook Live.
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 mask 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.


Quotes from Church History
E.M. Bounds: “True prayers are born of present trials and present needs. Bread for today is bread enough. Bread given for today is the strongest sort of pledge that there will be bread tomorrow. Victory today is the assurance of victory tomorrow. Our prayers need to be focused upon the present. We must trust God today, and leave the morrow entirely with Him. The present is ours; the future belongs to God. Prayer is the task and duty of each recurring day -- daily prayer for daily needs.” – E.M. Bounds (183-1913, American Methodist Pastor and Itinerant Preacher)

Sunday School
Staff continues to explore ways to Re-Group for Sunday School. Sunday School is a vital ministry in the life of a local church. The spiritual growth, the community building, and the ministry care that occurs in small groups is essential to healthy church growth. We hope to unfold a comprehensive Re-Grouping plan in the next few days. Until we can meet please reach out to one another, keep telling your unbelieving friends about Christ, and use these materials for your own home group Sunday School. If asked to login, simply create your own account.

Building Updates
The Building and Grounds Team has contracted for the second part of repainting the interior of our beautiful building. The main halls of the Adult Education space will be painted starting August 4. Future painting phases will include classrooms and bathrooms, the Children’s Ministry and Student Ministry area, and the Activity Center. We hope to see all of those spaces completed over the next couple of years.

CHBC Re-Gathering – August 9, 2020
The church is not a building people meet together in, but a people who gather to worship Jesus Christ as Lord.
When the church gathers there are two audiences in which each worshiper is to be concerned. The first is God. He is our first and primary audience. He is to receive all worship and praise. We gather to glorify His name and to honor Him with our obedience.
The second audience of concern are the other worshippers. We do not gather to worship others, but we gather with the desire to love the other worshippers and defer to their needs as fellow followers of Christ. In other words, as an individual we want to do all we can to make their worship more possible.
We come to worship with God and others in mind, not self. We are not present for ourselves, but for Christ and neighbor. These are the summary of the commands of God. Love God and love others.
We want to remind you of our commitment to continue gathering faithfully and safely. 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 mask in order to protect others. We look forward to gathering in person and online this Sunday. Please plan to 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.

Quotes from Church History
J.C Ryle: “It costs something to be a real Christian, according to the standard of the Bible. There are enemies to be overcome, battles to be fought, sacrifices to be made, an Egypt to be forsaken, a wilderness to be passed through, a cross to be carried, a race to be run. Conversion is not putting a person in an arm-chair and taking them easily to heaven. It is the beginning of a mighty conflict, in which it costs much to win the victory.” – J.C. Ryle (1816-1900, English Evangelical Anglican Pastor)

Prayer
Pray for our church to be the pillar and support of the truth. May we articulate God’s Word so clearly and so consistently that it never distorts the plain truth.
Psalm 119:160
“The sum of Your word is truth, and every one of Your righteous ordinances is everlasting.”
