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. Our Wednesday morning Scripture Meditation and Prayer group, led by Lisa Goins, is on pause for a few weeks. We will keep you posted about a restart/resume date.
In late January, we started a new study called “Fingerprints of God: Recognizing God’s Touch on Your Life,” by Jennifer Rothschild. Led by Betsy Mayse, this seven session study is covering six things we can experience because of God’s touch: honor, intimacy, shelter, guidance, redemption, and refinement. Babysitting is available.
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
Wow! Our 18th annual Winter Luncheon was a wonderful time of fellowship and fun! We enjoyed our time with speaker and former CBCer Amy Hernandez, and she enjoyed the break from the cold Iowa winter! Join us in January 2020 for our 19th annual luncheon.
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 Dee H.
NEW: School uniforms are now available!
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, 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.
Ladies: mark your calendars for our 2019 Women’s Retreat on Friday, April 5–Saturday, April 6, at Springhill Retreat Center in Richardson, TX. Hotel rooms will be available if you would like to stay at Springhill, but going home on Friday evening is very doable based on the location. We look forward to seeing you next year at our retreat!
