CBC UPDATE   –   Friday 27 January 2023

Hi Church Family,

This Sunday is a significant moment for our church, as we farewell Paul, Michelle, Zach, Caleb and Micah, and celebrate their season of ministry and friendship here at CBC. Thank you to everyone who RSVP’d and wrote messages for Paul… I’m confident it’s going to be a special service that both looks back with gratitude and looks ahead with hope to what God has for us.

As a reminder, there will only be one service this Sunday, at 9:30am. There will be no 5pm service. The 9:30am service will be livestream and will be followed by lunch for those attending in person.

The holiday program for kids ministry will be on this Sunday, which means:

  • Beehive (with COAH Cubby) will be open from the beginning of the service; and
  • Cool House and Gener8 will combine, beginning in the service for worship and then meeting the leaders at the back of the auditorium.

Also, as a quick heads up to parents, we are planning to have Kids Graduation during the morning service on Sunday the 5th, and youth ministries will also be resuming next weekend.

Please feel free to get in touch if you need anything.

In Christ,
Pastor Andrew

 

CBC UPDATE   –   Friday 20 January 2023

Hi Church Family,

I’ve enjoyed being down in Gerringong this week on our Youth Summer Camp. I’m constantly encouraged by the growth in our youth and the incredible youth leaders God continues to raise up at CBC. It’s another reminder that even though we’re on ‘holidays’, God never takes a holiday… he’s always at work.

This Sunday in the 9:30am service Omar Djoeandy will be continuing our summer series, Unexpected Roads, preaching a message called “The Road to Compassion”. There will be morning tea after the service and then the Special Members Meeting will be happening at 11:30am. As has been said a few times already, everyone is invited to come along but we need at least 80 members there for the meeting to go ahead, so please make it a priority to be there if you can.

In the 5:00pm service we will be celebrating the return of the Summer Camp crew and hearing about the “So Much More” God has for his people.

This Sunday will also be the last opportunity for people to submit their messages to be included in Pastor Paul’s farewell book. We will have more cards available at the church, and messages can also be emailed to office@ecbc.org.au. Also, if you haven’t already, please add your name to the RSVP sheets for Paul’s farewell service on the 29th, so we can make sure we are properly prepared for the lunch after.

As a reminder, kids ministry will be on during our services throughout January:

  • In the 9:30am service: Beehive will be open from the beginning of the service; Cool House and Gener8 will combine, beginning in the service for worship and then meeting the leaders at the back of the auditorium.
  • In the 5:00pm service: Cubby will be on from the beginning of the service.
  • Our Sunday youth ministries (Crew and DTS) are not on in January.

Please feel free to get in touch if you need anything.

In Christ,
Pastor Andrew
