CHBC Connect for March 17, 2023
What is God’s Vision for CHBC?
The vision for CHBC is stated in three parts: Three Piers, Three Pillars, and Three Purposes. The last several newsletters have included information about the piers and pillars. These non-negotiables and convictions give substance to the purposes for which the church does each of its ministries. The three purposes of CHBC are: to Equip Believers, to Exalt Christ, and to Extend the Gospel. We are equipping believers to know God and His Word, to be Christlike, and to do the work of ministry through the power of the Holy Spirit. Walk the hallways of the church and find the pictures of CHBC’s Know-Be-Do’s.
Equip Classes – March 19 – April 2
Equip Classes will resume on Sunday nights at 5 PM beginning March 19. They will conclude on April 2. Youth and Adults will have five opportunities to be equipped further in Prayer, Evangelism, Service, or Pro-Life Apologetics. Children can participate in PoWer for Kids or attend a discipleship class on the Fruit of the Spirit. For the full list of classes, descriptions, locations, and leaders visit the website at Equip Classes.
Resurrection Celebration Activities
Worship Through Giving
CHBC worship services include having a time of Worship through Giving. You will still be able to give online, through the Offering Boxes at the doors of the Worship Center, by mail, or by dropping off your offering. But we want to remind ourselves that our giving to the Lord is an act of worship, therefore we want that time during the worship service. Even if you give in a different format, this moment in the service will allow you to consecrate yourself and gifts to the Lord.
Utah Mission Trip – July 7-15
Victory Christian Fellowship is a small Southern Baptist Church in the town of Panguitch, Utah. They have existed for just over thirty years, but recently have struggled to locate a pastor because of the limited amount of housing in this resort area. They are constructing a parsonage, while trying to keep ministry going to the residents and many visitors the area. We will be conducting a 4-day VBS and helping finish the building project during our trip. If you are interested in going on this mission trip, or would just like more information, please stay after church for a few minutes on Sunday, Feb. 5, to receive an information packet. Cost will be between $780-$900/person depending on rooming arrangements.
CHBC Resource Center
Stop by the updated Resource Center outside the main doors to get the ESV Study Bible, or Systematic Theology, 2nd Ed. by Wayne Grudem. There are also three free resources available at this time. You can take these at no cost, or make a donation for your book to assist the furtherance of the CHBC Resource Center. The CHBC Resource Center exists to provide biblical tools every home should own. There is a payment box at the Resource Center with suggested retail pricing for each available resource. Pay what you can if you can. We want every home equipped with these Bible study tools. Also, pick up your free Scripture Memory pack, preloaded with all the verses for Titus 2.
Scripture of the Month - March
Titus 2:3, “Older women likewise are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips nor enslaved to much wine, teaching what is good,”
During 2023 CHBC will be saying aloud verses from the book of Titus 2. CHBC quotes Scripture aloud 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 goal of 2023 is for you to be able to quote the entire second chapter of the Epistle to Titus. Pick up your Scripture Memory card packs at the Resource Center outside the middle doors of the Worship Center.
