Can I share something that hit me hard in my prayer time today?
More and more I hear God calling us, as his people to never settle for just going to church – but to BE the church. I’m glad you are a part of it, and I pray God will make this as real to you as he’s made it to me. Because He’s not calling us to observe the church or attend the church or be consumers of the church – if you are a believer he’s calling you to BE the church.
Please pray with me that God would reveal to all of us in a fresh, new way that we are not consumers – we are soldiers, and show us exactly what place he’s calling each of us to in his plan to storm the gates of hell and overwhelm this world with Jesus. Whether you are called to serve in weekend services, help behind the scenes, invite people, or go OUTBOUND – ask God to reveal to YOU PERSONALLY what part you are to play right now. Let me know how I can help you find your role as an important part of THE CHURCH!
Here are a FEW ways for you to get further connected to your teammates, fellow soldiers and friends at CBCB:
Young & Married? – our next fun event is TOMORROW, Fri 3/23 @ 6:30. It’s a potluck, bring a couple of lobsters or a bag of doritos. Even if you haven’t RSVP’d – please come if you can. If you HAVE RSVP’d – you’ll get first crack at any lobster that shows up (don’t get your hopes up).
Ladies Retreat is the last weekend in April. It’s going to be awesome, but we need your registration (and some down payment) ASAP. We have to nail down rooms next week. Sign up in the lobby this weekend or online here- Ladies retreat . Info? Contact Sara aa@myCBCB.com or 830-228-5654.
Sean & Jen Nuccio are “our “ missionaries in West Africa. They will be home over the next few weeks, and you’ll get a chance to see them. In fact we’ll have a baby shower for them to celebrate the upcoming arrival of their new baby girl on 3/30. We’d love for you to come. Info here: baby shower , or contact Amber Busby 830-237-9858 / email@example.com
EASTER weekend is an awesome time to celebrate Jesus together, AND an awesome time to reach our community for Christ. You can help that weekend 3/31-4/1, by INVITING ONE friend to church, ATTENDING one service, and SERVING in one service. Want to know HOW you can serve? Contact Jim Eddy: volunteers@myCBCB.com.
Please really pray today about what God is calling YOU to do in HIS body – The Church.
See you this weekend!
