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. CHBC strives to be mission-minded, biblically modeled, and multicultural on our way to accomplish the vision God has given us. We support the IMB and NAMB, of the Southern Baptist Convention. We support other mission opportunities directly through the World Missions Offering. We pray weekly for an unreached people group in the world. And we seek opportunities to go ourselves to our neighbors and the nations with the gospel of Jesus Christ. The church is commanded to gather to worship Jesus. We are also commanded to scatter to tell the world about Him.
- 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
Midweek Schedule Adjustment
During the week of Fall Break the only midweek ministry at CHBC will be GriefShare, which meets Wednesday night at 6 PM.
Greet and Treat
It is almost October 31, which means one of CHBC’s annual outreach ministries is right around the corner. Plan to walk your neighborhood, knock on doors, and Greet and Treat your neighbors. Or plan to make your home inviting to those trick-or-treaters and bless them with our Greet and Treat bags. Either way we can be in the community and loving our neighbors.
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 Romans 5:12, “Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned—” 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 October 7, 1873, Lottie Moon arrives in China. The missions offering of the SBC for world missions is named after Lottie. She will say, “If I had a thousand lives, I would give them all for the women of China.” Learn more about what happened on this date in church history by following this link: Today in Church History.
Pray for one another to thirst for God in our spiritually dry culture.
“O God, You are my God; I shall seek You earnestly; My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You, in a dry and weary land where there is no water.”
Mark D. DeMoss, Senior Pastor
For the Glory of God
