Here are your updates!
It was a precious time celebrating the death and resurrection of our Lord together. I've heard from so many of you about how encouraged you were from reflecting on what Jesus has done for you and the Father's love in crushing his Son for our sin problem. We need these reminders of his love and forgiveness for us! What a great weekend.
The Priority in Women’s Ministry
This past week on Wednesday night I outlined the foundational priority for women's ministry in the church. I didn't cover many of the practicals, but taught on the key passage of Titus 2:3-5. Some of you have asked about a recording, here's a link.
Next Sermon Series
After Mark we are going to look at what God says about his church. I plan to preach on our purpose, mission and vision at CBC. As I have begun to prepare for this series, I've been flooded with a sense of urgency and renewed commitment as to why this church was planted four years ago.
For those of you who have been here since the beginning this is going to be a powerful reminder as we recalibrate our thinking about why we exist. For those of you who are newer to the ministry, these messages will give you insight into what drives the ministry at CBC - our view of God, of the Scripture, and of his church.
This Summer we plan to gather on Wednesday nights beginning 6/26 to study biblical parenting. More details will be coming soon, but something to begin to set your expectations for. Many of these principles are broadly applicable so there are opportunities for the entire church body here (those who might someday raise kids, those currently raising kids, those who have already raised kids, and those who know people who are raising kids... that covers everyone).
Chairs for Eicher
We don't need chairs anymore! The Shift Church is leaving some chairs for us, which will be combined with the used ones we already purchased. This means that we have all that we need until the new chairs arrive in late June.
The Shift Church will be dismantling the wood decking that surrounds the two mobile trailers on the property on Saturday 5/18. There are pressure treated boards on the deck that we can re-purpose for use elsewhere on the property. We need a couple of able-bodies to help unscrew the boards as they are loading up the material to have it hauled away.
Romans 12:2 - Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
