Women’s Bible Studies
Each Fall and Spring semester, there are opportunities for Bible study, prayer and fellowship from 9:30 – 11:30 AM on Wednesdays. Our Spring Bible studies will begin Wednesday, January 14. There will be three studies:
- Betsy Mayse will lead a Beth Moore study on 1 & 2 Thessalonians entitled “Children of the Day.’
- Mary Baird will lead a study of “The Last Hours of Jesus,” which will focus on chapters 13–20 of the Gospel of John.
- The Prayer Group, led by Kate Lett and Sarah Correll, will read and prayer through 1 & 2 Peter.
You are cordially invited to join us to study God’s Word in an atmosphere of Christian love and acceptance.
Heart T2 Heart — Women’s Life Mentoring Ministry
Heart T2 Heart is a ministry to develop supportive mentoring relationships between the older and younger women in our body where godliness is taught and modeled. Titus 2:3-5 specifically addresses the goal for this type of intentional relationship where spiritually mature women invest themselves in nurturing younger women. A mentor is a woman who loves the Lord and desires to encourage and support another woman in her walk with Christ as she shares from her knowledge of scripture and life experiences. A mentee is a woman who is younger in her relationship with the Lord, and wishes to have another believer encourage her in her growth and development in Christ.
During the Summer each year, applications are available to mentors and mentorees. In September, mentors and mentorees are matched and there is a kick-off luncheon to begin their new partnerships. Each partnership decides on subsequent meeting times based on their schedules. If you are interested in being a mentor or mentored, please contact Bernie Schultz or the CBC Office (972-671-3428 x0) for more information.
Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you have been doing.1 Thessalonians 5:11
Women’s Winter Luncheon
On the last Saturday of January, our women gather for a delicious salad luncheon. Each year we have a special guest speaker and music. Event details will be accessible from the Events section below as they become available.
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.
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 Claire Mizuno.
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.
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. 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.
The annual Women’s Retreat is typically held over a Friday evening through Saturday afternoon in March to provide an opportunity for women to get to know each other better and to be refreshed in the Lord. The focus of our 2015 Retreat was “Yes, (sister), let me benefit from you in the Lord; refresh my heart in Christ” (Philemon 1:20). Event details will be accessible from the Events section below as they become available.
