Christ Bible Family,
We may recognize the saying, “. . . in a time like this . . .”, the idea is from Esther 4:14 but the situation you and I are in now will require a much longer time to negotiate. We wish to maintain a broad band of communication to you for the purpose of encouragement, continued hope, spiritual education and look forward to a wonderful family reunion in days ahead. This pandemic is new to all of us; however, God was not surprised nor is he ill-equipped to care for his people. Remember, “Trust in the Lord forever, for in God the Lord, we have an everlasting Rock” (Isa 26:4).
The leadership of CBC is committed to serving you, so our Church office will remain open, Tues – Friday, 10 am to 5 pm. You are welcome to call or stop by should you have any spiritual need.
Supporting your local church is an important part of worship. Ministry continues whether we physically meet at the church or not. The writers of the New Testament operated by principle: – giving should be private (other people do not have a need to know and no boasting) – it should be voluntary – it should be sacrificial – it should be generous. That might be $5 for some but $50 for others. The point . . . be faithful, participate in ministry in this way. To this end we encourage you to remain faithful by bringing your offering to the church or put it in the mail. Christ Bible’s website (https://cbcofcranberry.org/give-ii/) or GIVE button on the “Our Church” menu offers secure online giving as well.
Regarding Sunday worship, a decision will be made before 3 pm each Friday as to whether we will physically meet at CBC. Check the home page banner weekly for updates.
Your servant in Christ,
