CHBC Re-Gathering July 19, 2020

CHBC,
We continue to monitor all that is taking place in our city and state regarding COVID-19 and any affects that has on gathering for worship. Please continue to use the RSVP method as this helps us prepare for ETC, and any necessary overflow seating. Please also continue using the recommended precautions of staying home if you have symptoms, covering coughs/sneezes, washing hands frequently, and maintaining a physical distance of six feet, and/or wearing a mask if you desire. We look forward to our church gathering for worship on Sunday, and for your ability to join either in person or on Facebook Live at 10 AM for English-speaking worship, and 12 PM for Spanish-speaking worship.

Please see the rest of this email to begin the process of RSVP for AM Worship for July 19, 2020.


Sunday Re-Gathering
Current worship service times for AM Worship are 10 AM for English-speaking worship, and 12 PM for Spanish-speaking worship
CHBC is still honoring physical distancing recommendations
This means we are only being seated on every other row of the Worship Center (rows should be clearly marked)
We are allowing a three-chair gap between family units (a family unit is made up those who live in the same home)
We remind those who are 65 years of age and older, or who are in a higher-risk category to know that our health agencies are still discouraging being in crowded public spaces
Wearing a mask is not required, but is encouraged in crowds where physical distancing is not possible. If you feel you need it for your safety and the safety of others please feel comfortable worshipping with us while wearing a mask
We are sanitizing prior to each gathering
Please be aware that some have reason to be more cautious than others, therefore respect people’s space and convictions
We are using RSVP so that we can have enough seating in the Worship Center and in our overflow rooms, as well as to prepare properly for the number of children who will be in ETC (Extended Teaching Care for 3 years of age and younger)
Please use this link to RSVP: CHBC Re-Gathering for July 19, 2020
If you forget to RSVP you are still welcome to attend, or to bring a guest, just be aware that those who arrive late may need to be seated in overflow.

CHBC Re-Gathering Plan

Capitol Hill Baptist Weekly July 17, 2020

CHBC Re-Gathering – July 19, 2020
The church is not a building people meet together in, but a people who gather to worship Jesus Christ as Lord.
Yet, the building is important! A building or a location for the people of God to gather is important. The church is not the building, but the people are meant to gather. While many are not able currently to gather publicly and corporately, we are grateful we still have a place to gather into. 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. And click here to read the CHBC Re-Gathering Plan and Update. 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.

VBS
We continue to pray and seek the Lord on how VBS can be within our neighborhoods near our location. Pray circumstances will allow us the opportunity to share Christ within our neighborhoods in these ways. Cheryl Ross, the Preschool and Children’s Ministry Director, is working very hard with her staff to provide locations for a Neighborhood VBS experience. An abbreviated schedule will be used. The dates are July 27-29. If you would be interested in hosting or assisting please contact Cheryl Ross at , or by calling the church office at 405-799-9799.

Aaron Project
Can you be an Aaron? Aaron in the Bible was known as a disciple that was always bringing people to Jesus. He was quiet, encouraging, and faithful. Today an Aaron is someone who volunteers to pray for one of our area educators. We all know the last school year ended with many challenges. We received many positive testimonies from teachers who had an Aaron praying for them and encouraging them to finish a hard year well. Our teachers need an Aaron this year to encourage them and bring them before Jesus regularly in prayer. Sign up to be an Aaron by going to this link on the CHBC Facebook page: Aaron Project. Learn more about RedeemED by following this link to the CHBC Website: RedeemED 2020.


Quotes from Church History
Martin Bucer: “For where God is not recognized and obedience to Him is not required before all things, there peace is not peace, justice is not justice, and that which should be profitable brings injury instead.”” – Martin Bucer (1491-1551, Reformer and Pastor in Switzerland and Germany)

Sunday School
Re-Grouping is the next phase of our Re-Gathering plan, and I wish we knew for sure when and how that will occur. 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. 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.

Prayer
Pray Christ would rule your heart, and in the hearts of all our family and neighbors. Where He rules justice is done. Until He rules justice cannot be done.
