CHBC Weekly November 5, 2021


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 ultimate goal of CHBC is produce fully devoted disciples of Jesus Christ who live by the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:36-40), and who fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20). It is our intent to see each believer moving toward a life characterized by love for God, and a love for neighbor that is primarily expressed in a desire to see them come to know Jesus Christ as their Savior. We gather to stir one another towards these ends, and we scatter to fulfill our purpose.

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

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 November is Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”  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 November 4, 1898, Pan Xiushan, the first Christian convert of the Hmu tribe in China’s Guizhou Province, also becomes the tribe’s first martyr when struck down with a sword. Minutes later William Fleming, a missionary for whom he translated, is also killed, the first martyr of the China Inland Mission. Learn more about what happened on this date in church history by following this link: Today in Church History.



CHBC pray for one another to have their identity fully grounded in Christ, and that this knowledge would provide confidence to live for the cause of the gospel in our homes, workplaces, and the world.

2 Corinthians 3:5-6

“Not that we are adequate in ourselves to consider anything as coming from ourselves, but our adequacy is from God, who also made us adequate as servants of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.”
