Pastor Mark's Weekly Update June 6, 2019
VBS – June 10-14
Vacation Bible School begins Monday. You can register at this link: VBS Registration. Our evening service on this Sunday night will be focused on Vacation Bible School, and we will pray for all of our volunteers.
CHBC offers two camps each summer, one for children and one for students (or teens). If you would like to help a child or student attend camp you may give the gift of a Camp Scholarship. You can see more information about these camps at the church website: www.chbchurch.org. Please mark your check with either Children’s Camp or Student Camp so we know which way to designate your scholarship gift. You can also give online through our online giving portal at the website: CHBC Online Giving.

Love Your Neighbor
Pastor Mark when talking about the Great Commission will usually mention Neighbors and Nations. These are not just words, but a vision, a mission, and a plan. He intends to lead our church to fulfill the Great Commission by reaching locally and globally. Love Your Neighbor is our local mission.
Jesus gave us a great command, “to love your neighbor as yourself” (Matt. 22:36-40). We have been asking the question, “What would it look like to do this literally?” You can find out more by following this link to our website: Love Your Neighbor. You can help by being present at one of the host homes, by providing food or drink for a host home, by helping to pass out flyers as invitations to the host home in a neighborhood, and by praying on the night of each Love Your Neighbor Parties. Prayer times will occur at the church on June 30, August 4, and September 8.
“Resolved, to think much on all occasions of my own dying, and of the common circumstances which attend death.” (Edwards, 1723) If you visit many old cemeteries, which I have, you will notice a frequent use of the skull and crossbones. This was not a morbid sense toward life. Instead it was a visual reminder that we are mortal beings, and we should think about our mortality. We will all die, and we will all stand before Christ. We should consider that day and live with the end in mind.
