Plan lunch after church and bring a friend to support the Mission Trip!

Hi Friends,

This week our teaching text will be Jeremiah 1:1-19, and we’ll be talking about what it means that God has PREPARED us for His service!

Have you ever thought of yourself as a prophet?  Probably not, but as God’s followers we all have the responsibility and privilege of proclaiming the Gospel message!

Biblical prophets didn’t just predict future events, they also proclaimed God’s Word to people.  And, that is exactly the charge that Jesus entrusted to us before He left this earth,

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey all that I commanded you.  And lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age!”  Matthew 28:19-20

I love what St. Francis of Assisi said about the Great Commission.  He added, “Go everywhere preaching… And, if necessary, use words!”

This Sunday we’ll be looking at the fact that God’s Knowing us involves our Preparation for ministry.

I look forward to seeing you at either our 9 am or 10:30 am service!

Sunday Morning | 10:30 am


This year’s theme is Mercy Springs with CBC Kids🌵This summer we will be exploring some of the wildest events in The Old West-ament. When we look a little closer, we see thatGod’s plan then is the same plan He has now: to let the world know who God is and how much He loves us!

☀️ Reserve your child’s spot today HERE! 🐴

We are sharing this with you because we believe Mercy Springs will be an opportunity for the children within your sphere of influence to experience the transformative love of Jesus Christ this summer. Please share this information with family, friends, or neighbors – be bold! Ask the Lord who He has on His heart for VBS this summer in a safe, fun, and loving environment.

We understand summer can be a busy time for camps, vacations, and beach days. We hope you will join us for a meaningful week of activities, stories, and fun. Check out this video from last year’s Planet Hope VBS for just a taste of what’s to come in 2020!

Sunday 5/3/20 6p

The first Sunday of each month, at 6 pm, we host our monthly healing service called Restore in our church sanctuary. Please help us get the word out to friends and family – even strangers, those who you feel might be in need of this vital ministry!

It has been my overwhelming experience that healing is not about praying the right words, or finding the right person to lay hands on us, but rather about persistence in prayer. Time-and-time-again I have seen God work miracles as His people persist in prayer, petitioning Him to unleash His divine power against evil, injustice and the broken things of this life!

Won’t you come join us as we persist together as a family, as a body of believers, who are convinced that God is able!

I’m confident that this will quite possibly be the most significant and powerful hour that you will engage in all week long!
