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. Three piers, three pillars, and three purposes. This is why and how CHBC functions. The Three Pillars are: Biblically-Modeled, Mission-Minded, and Multi-Cultural. A church is not a church because it claims to be a church, but only if it is patterned after what the Bible means by a church. We do what we do because it is what churches do. Parachurch organizations can do what we do, but those purposes were given to the church, therefore we have the responsibility to be a church, not just act like a church.

Please remember:

  • Be aware of your own health as you prepare to come to Sunday School and worship
  • Worship with us online if you are experiencing the symptoms of COVID-19, or other transmissible illnesses
  • While you are present wash your hands, and do not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth

Lottie Moon Christmas Offering & The World Missions Offering

You have two ways to support missionaries around the world through CHBC. During December you can give to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. Make a gift of any amount with a check, cash, or by giving online (choose Lottie Moon in the drop-down window). Make use of the Lottie Moon post office by giving Christmas cards to church family and donating the expense of the stamps to Lottie Moon.

 

You can also choose to give to The World Missions Offering. This supports International Missions, as well as North American Missions, Voice of the Martyrs, and the Tomlinson’s whose work is primarily in Thailand. Go to this page on the website to give your tithe, or a special offering to missions: Give at CHBC.

 

Christmas Eve Service- Dec. 24 at 5 PM

Do not forget to plan your Christmas Eve to include the CHBC Christmas Eve Service. This special tradition will last from 5 – 6 PM. The whole community is welcome, so please invite your family, friends, or co-workers.

 

No Sunday School on December 26

As a way to give our Sunday School Leaders a break the week of Christmas, we will not have Sunday School on December 26. We will have our worship service at 10:15 AM as regularly scheduled. Please enjoy a little rest that morning and bring your family to worship.

 

Members’ Meeting on December 19 following AM Worship

Each year the church votes on a church budget. A Budget and Finance Committee is elected each year to oversee the approved budgets, and to prepare a proposal for the next year budget. Our committee has worked diligently since October to gather budget requests and bring to the church a proposed budget for 2022. That budget will be available for church members to review no later than December 12. The meeting to discuss and approve the 2022 budget will occur on December 19, immediately following the morning worship service.

 

Sunday Nights for CHBC

Put these special nights of worship and ministry on your calendar and plan to be with your church family for a special fall and holiday season.

  • December 5 – “Good Newsies” presented by Christmas Heritage Academy & CHBC Christmas Fellowship to follow
  • December 12 – CHBC Worship Ministry Christmas Night of Worship
  • December 19 – Power for Kids Christmas Musical
  • December 26 – No Evening Worship

 

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 December is John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”  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 December 2, 1893, Charlotte Tucker died. Auntie Tucker was a missionary to India. She did not leave England and begin her mission work until she was 54 years old. Learn more about what happened on this date in church history by following this link: Today in Church History.

 

Prayer

CHBC pray a pray of thanks for God’s self-revelation to us through His Son, Jesus Christ, and through the Bible.

Hebrews 1:1-2

“God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world.”

Love Your Neighbor – August 22
Have you considered using your home for Love Your Neighbor? This is an opportunity for you and your Sunday School class to meet in fellowship with unbelievers and unchurched in your neighborhood. We want to help you invite them and host them at your house for a neighborhood party. Please contact Henry or Keo Chan for details.
 
CHBC Men’s and Women’s Ministries
An active and vibrant men’s and women’s ministry in the local church does three things. First, it recognizes what creation reveals, that there are two genders who equal in God’s eyes while unique in design, function, and roles. Second, men’s and women’s ministries allow a place for Bible study, fellowship, and accountability to be shared among those who experience the same joys, trials, and temptations that are unique to being male and female. Third, it encourages the unique function and gifts of men and women to be used for the church in a way that blesses the entire family of faith.
 
Find out more about what is going on in men’s and women’s ministries by visiting their separate pages on the CHBC website: CHBC Men’s Ministry and CHBC Women’s Ministry.

The Scripture we will say and memorize for the month of July is 1 Corinthians 15:57-58, “but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

On July 25, 306, Constantine is announced as Emperor of Rome by his troops. He converted to Christianity about 6 years later and became instrumental to the end of sanctioned persecution of Christians in Rome. Learn more by following this link: Today in Church History
 
Prayer
CHBC pray for God’s help to be one who will stimulate others to love and good deeds. Pray to be an encourager to your brothers and sisters in Christ.
Hebrews 10:23-25
23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; 24 and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, 25 not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.”
