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. People who are unified by our common relationship to Jesus Christ. As such we should work to know each other and be in committed love to one another. We should express that love by our participation in gathered worship and serving one another through our spiritual gifts. Sunday by Sunday not showing up “to church” but being “the 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.
Churchwide Labor Day Picnic
September 5. 5-7 PM. Hamburgers and Hotdogs will be cooked onsite. Drinks will also be provided. Church members and guests please bring toppings, sides, and desserts. Activities will include sand volleyball, cornhole, softball, soccer, frisbees, and yard games.
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 2, 1758, William Romaine, an Anglican priest who had come to an evangelical conversion, preaches a sermon on justification at St. Paul’s Cathedral, despite opposition of the Church of England’s hierarchy. Learn more about what happened on this date in church history by following this link: Today in Church History.
Be blessed and in awe of God’s goodness expressed to all of us in His common graces. And then use that impulse to be persuaded to seek Him fully and know Him through His Word.
“The earth is full of Your lovingkindness, O Lord; Teach me Your statutes.”
