Pastor's Weekly Update

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort. – 2 Corinthians 1:3

Welcome to CBC

If you are our guest today, thank you for choosing to worship with us. Make yourself at home and let know if you have questions.

New Sermon Series Begins Today

I am going to be preaching a series on 2 Corinthians entitled “God’s Power for Our Weakness.” Please remember to pray for me, Austin, and all who lead worship, as we seek God to present the message He has for us. 

“I Am a Church Member” Study Begins This Evening

Our fall discipleship study will be based on the book, “I Am a Church Member,” by Dr. Thom Rainer. We will sing, watch a short video (10-12 minutes), then have a time of discussion and application. Books will be available for $5.00. Don’t miss it!

Coming October 13-16 – “The Eternity Event” with Dr. Gil Lain

Biblical answers to eternal questions. Dr. Lain will share – “The Present Heaven” (What is Heaven like now), “The Millennial Kingdom” (The thousand-year rule of Christ on earth), “Eternity without Christ,” “Eternity with Christ” (What life will be like in the eternal heaven). This will be the perfect opportunity to invite others.  

What is The Eternity Event?

One definition of event is a noteworthy happening. Eternity should speak for itself. So, The Eternity Event is hopefully a noteworthy happening in our church and community about Eternity. Is it a revival? I hope so! By God’s grace, it will be a time of refreshing and renewal for Christians. Is it an evangelistic event? I really hope so! I’m praying and inviting you to pray with me that the event will cause people to turn to Christ as Savior.

Why are we calling it an event? You always ask the very best questions! We are calling it an “event” because people outside the faith/church may not understand revival or evangelism, but everyone understands an event. And, I believe, most people are interested in eternity and the themes that will be addressed.  

So how can I help, you ask? An even better question! You can pray fervently for Dr. Lain, for Austin as he plans and invites guests to help with worship music, for your own spiritual renewal, for God to give you people to invite, and for a harvest of souls. It’s really up to each of us whether it will be just another meeting or a true “eternity event.” So, are you in?  

Think about it…

"He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him." – John 3:36 

When you live in the light of eternity, your values change. - Rick Warren
