News It’s Beginning to Look Like Christmas here at CBCB I’m so excited about the sermon series we’ll begin this week! It’s all about Matthew 1:23 and the prophecy that was fulfilled with the birth of Jesus. “Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means ‘God is with us.’” Beginning Sunday – let’s explore what it means to have God with us. “You better watch out, you better not cry, better not pout, I’m telling you why” – we still have 34 STARS that represent Christmas wishes for our local Los Niños families! It’s not too late to be a part of our Be A STAR churchwide Christmas blessing this year. We don’t want to leave anyone out, so if you missed us in the lobby during the Thanksgiving holiday, please click on this link where you can choose a STAR to gift. You will find all the information you need about how to get in on the fun once you get to the link. You can bring your UNWRAPPED gifts either Wednesday, December 2ndfrom 8:30am-11:00am at the back entrance of the church or Sunday, December 6th at the BE A STAR table before and after both services. Thank you, church family, for being the light that shows our community the love of Jesus this Christmas season! “And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’” (Matthew 25:40 NLT) Did you know that hundreds of people in the City of San Antonio don’t have a place to lay their heads at night or any protection from the cold? You can make a huge impact on the life of our brothers and sisters suffering from homelessness by providing them with a warm SLEEPING BAG. CBCB has provided thousands of sleeping bags for the homeless over the last few years! You can buy 1 or MORE sleeping bags for only $10.00 each! We will get them ordered, received, and delivered in Jesus’ name. This year, it’s easier than ever – we’re doing this drive ONLINE….click this link, then scroll to the bottom and enter how much you would like to donate (in $10 increments) for sleeping bags. It’s THAT easy it is to make a difference in someone’s life. Communion will be served this Sunday. If you are unable to attend church “in-person”, I’d like to invite you to get your communion elements ready so you can join with us in remembering what Jesus did for us on the cross. We can share communion together during our live stream at myCBCB.com at 9:30 am. YOUR CHRISTMAS EVE RESERVATION IS NEEDED!!!
