Women’s Bible Studies

Each Fall and Spring semester, there are opportunities for Bible study, prayer and fellowship from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. on Wednesdays.

Please join us on Wednesday, September 14, when we will start a new studies.  Our first study is based on Jodie Niznik’s study entitled “Trust: A Study of Joseph for Persevering Through Life’s Challenges.” Our Bible study leader will be Betsy M.   Our second study is on the Book of 1 John led by Suzi Ciliberti. We look forward to seeing you there!

Events

We enjoyed the Awaken Event on Thursday, September 15,  and Priscilla Shirer’s teaching.  We hope to do this again next year!

Women’s Winter Brunch

Our Women’s Winter Luncheon in 2023  will be on Saturday, January 28.  Please contact Sarah C. if you would like to host a table or have questions. See you then!

Helps Ministry

The Helps Committee serves the body of Christ as set forth in Romans 12:10-13:

Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor; not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; …contributing to the needs o f the saints…

This ministry of service takes many forms; providing meals in case of illness or death, transportation, babysitting, overnight housing, house cleaning or grocery shopping.  The committee tries to cover the needs of people who are not in a Ministry Group, where this type of serving would normally occur.

Grandma’s Attic

Good stewardship is a biblical principle and “recycling” our clothes is one way of putting that principle into practice.   Grandma’s Attic is a clothing ministry for the benefit of the CBC family and others in need. Located in the balcony on the east side, it is open to the CBC family whenever the church is open. Please no food, drinks, or unsupervised children. Those who are not a part of our CBC family may be escorted to Grandma’s Attic by a member who knows them. We request that others be helped by a member of the Benevolence Committee.  Please donate only seasonally appropriate items that are clean and in excellent condition. For further information, contact Dee H.

 

Grandma’s Kitchen

Grandma’s Kitchen provides an emergency, short-term source of food to CBC members and other persons in the community. It is located in a closet on the first floor across from the Auditorium’s west side. CBCers have direct access to this food supply on Sunday mornings, Wednesdays, or other times the building is open for services and activities, or during Office hours. We request that others be helped by a member of the Benevolence Committee. Contact Sue K.

Grandma’s Freezer

Grandma’s Freezer, helping meet the short-term needs of CBCers and the community, is now available for storing meat, frozen vegetables, frozen dinners, etc. The good news: we have a new freezer!  The bad news: it’s empty!! To donate, simply leave your frozen item in the freezer, located in the main Kitchen near the back door. CBCers with a need may take food from the freezer. We request that others be helped by a member of the Benevolence Committee. Contact Sue K.
