Update from Pastor Darrel


For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.– Isaiah 9:6 (NASB) 

His Name Will Be Called… Eternal Father

A child will be born = Jesus’s humanity. A son will be given = Jesus’s Deity. This Godman is our Eternal Father. He is Founder and Head of a New Revelation, a New Religion, and a New Race! We’ll talk about it this morning. 

Thank You Austin, Choir, Doris, and Live Nativity Workers!

Wow! What a great and God-honoring presentation of “The Greatest Story Ever Told” last Sunday evening. We had over 500 in attendance! Combining our Live Nativity and musical was an outstanding idea and God certainly blessed. God is pleased and glorified when we lift up the name of Jesus. 

Thanks so much to Austin Daniel, our wonderful choir and instrumentalists, actors, sound and video technicians, prop and stage workers, ushers, etc., for your hard work in making it all happen. 

Thanks also to Doris Mathis and to all who helped with and were part of our beautiful Live Nativity. It was a big hit (especially the animals 😊) for kids young and old! 

Attendees filled out 87 cards so we will send an extra $87.00 to H.I.M. to help feed and clothe those in need in our community. Praise God from Whom all Blessings Flow! 

Lord’s Supper and Candlelight Service This Evening at 6:00

We will gather as a church family around the Lord’s table to celebrate the Light of the world. Join us! 

Reminder – Christmas Morning (next Sunday) Worship at 10:00

There will be no Connect Groups or other activities. One worship service at 10:00 a.m. We look forward to a great morning. 

Thanks for Giving to Lottie – We’ve Exceeded Our Goal! 

We are just a little shy of $10,000! As far as I know, this will be the largest Lottie Moon offering in the history of CBC. Well done! 

A Personal Thanks

The church recently voted to send $1,000.00 to the Candace L. Beggs Memorial Scholarship fund at Howard Payne University. Denise and I are always humbled and thankful for your thoughtfulness. Blessings.  

Think about it… 

Time is short. Eternity is long. It is only reasonable that this short life be lived in the light of eternity. – C. H. Spurgeon
