Worship at CHBC – A Reminder
The church is not a building people meet together in, but a people who gather to worship Jesus Christ as Lord. The confession of the church from its earliest moments is this: Jesus Christ is Lord. That means the church is a people who have chosen to submit themselves to the authority of Jesus. We know what Jesus has done and said because of the Word of God. Therefore, the Lordship of Christ, and the centrality of the Scriptures should be the foundations of any local church.

Lessons for Living
On Wednesday nights CHBC is active in ministry and worship. Children are in AWANA, Student Ministry is singing and hearing the Bible be taught by CHBC pastors, and our adults have the opportunity to serve or learn. If you are an adult and not serving in AWANA, please attend Bible Study with our Senior Pastor. His Wednesday night series this fall is called Lessons for Living. Pastor Mark and his wife, Susan, will be combining their efforts to bring theological truth and practical life skills to you in a conversational group setting. There will be a light snack. Lessons for Living is from 6-7:15 in Room 221.
Men’s and Women’s Bible Studies
CHBC is committed to discipling its members in a variety of ways. Our men’s and women’s Bible studies offer opportunities to grow deeper in your relationship with Christ and with one another. These Bible studies relaunch on September 13 and 14. See the full details at this link: Featured Activities.
Scripture of the Month
Each week CHBC says aloud a passage of Scripture during our morning worship gathering. This is done for two reasons. First, we are commanded in Scripture to encourage one another with the Word of God. Second, we want to emphasize the spiritual discipline of Scripture memory. The Scripture we will say and memorize for the month of September is John 14:6, “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.’” You can receive a text to your phone with this verse set to music by texting the word “CHBCVERSE” to the number (302) 207-SONG (7664).
A Moment in Church History
On September 16, 1672, Anne Bradstreet dies. Anne was a devout Christian of the puritan persuasion, who emigrated to the American colonies in 1630. Her father, and later her husband were governors of the colonies. Her poetry was the first published work from New England. Learn more about what happened on this date in church history by following this link: Today in Church History.
Pray that CHBC would not be puffed up with knowledge as we grow in our understanding of Scripture. But that our knowledge would be wisdom that is demonstrated by our good deeds.
“Who among you is wise and understanding? Let him show by his good behavior his deeds in the gentleness of wisdom.”
Mark D. DeMoss, Senior Pastor
