Parenting can be overwhelming!

Teenagers need a space to grow and connect.

Empower provides a space for parents to connect, process, and get support while their middle school student has a space to connect and grow deeper with God.

We are currently going through Tony Evans: Raising Kingdom Kids. Our next series will be Effective Parenting in a Defective World with Chip Ingram.

Visit for a schedule of topics.

Do you want to know more about our Missionaries at CBC? Would you like to get involved in missions in some way? Join us at 9am for our monthly Mission Team Meeting and learn more about our team and our missionaries at CBC!

Hi Friends,

This week our teaching passage will be Luke 13:22-35, and we’ll be talking about Embracing Opportunities.  Our text reveals Jesus’ response to a question that was posed to Him, “Are only a few going to be saved?”  His answer, in the verses that follow, informs us that God is all about relationship and not religiosity or merely going through the motions of good works.

I hope that you’ll make plans to join us at either our 9 am or 10:30 am service!

I look forward to seeing you,


Pastor Bob DuPar

Have you spent time lately dwelling on what it means to know God and be known by him? When I think of what it means to worship, I believe it is first and foremost about exalting God. But I think our worship is lacking if we don’t also allow it to be about us intentionally being seen and known by God; laying down our lives, hearts and dreams at his feet. I encourage you this week to think about how we can do just that in our personal and corporate worship!

This week the Ducks & Owls are learning about the importance of prayer in our Armor of God, as we read Acts 12:1-16, Peter’s Escape from Prison. The Billygoats will be continuing to learn about the “Capital C” Church! Below is a picture of the Billy Goats learning about Church. Yes, it is a building – but more importantly it is the people that make up the Church.

We are memorizing Ephesians 6:13 (NIrV):
“So put on all of God’s armor. Evil days will come. But you will be able to stand up to anything. And after you have done everything you can, you will still be standing.” Join us!
