What to Expect

Sunday Worship Service – 10:00 am

We view our Sunday worship service as the most important gathering of the church body. Although many other activities take place during the week, our service and educational hour are a “touch-point” of worship, fellowship, and instruction for our body. Because of the unique demographics of the area, the church includes many who travel and thus our Sunday gatherings take on a vital role in the life of the church. We seek to craft God-centered, Christ-exalting, Scripture-saturated worship experience to lead the body toward a passion for God and His glory. We usually follow a theme from start to finish, with each element chosen to complete a package that is theologically sound, inspirational, and practical. As in many churches, tastes in music style vary widely. Thus, our singing is a combination of lyrically solid music from both the past and present, put into fresh arrangements that resonate to a multi-generational congregation.

Everyone is Welcome! We invite all to attend our services. If you have questions, please feel free to speak with one of our elders. We are eager to assist and answer any questions you have. CBC offers quarterly membership classes for those who wish to learn more about our church doctrine, leadership structure and scriptural worldview. Please contact the church office for more information about membership classes.

What to Wear - Many people who attend CBC dress casually, while others choose to dress up a little. Come dressed however you feel comfortable to worship with us. We are more interested in having you with us than in what you are wearing.

Communion - Every 1st Sunday of the Month

The ordinance of communion (The Lord’s Table) is a sacred time of corporate reflection on the sufferings and sacrifice of our Lord Jesus.  Our communion table is open to all who have genuinely placed their faith in Christ alone for salvation, regardless of church membership or affiliation.  Parents are asked to ensure that children who partake have trusted Christ as their Savior and Lord and have an understanding of what communion symbolizes.  

Baptism - Resurrection Sunday and in the summer at Mary MacCallum Park or as required 

  • Baptism is a declaration of the believer’s identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection.  The apostle could say, “I have been crucified with Christ.” (Gal. 2:20) Christ’s death is a death for the believer.

    1).  Death: going down into the water – “Baptized with His death.” (Rom. 6:3) = atonement for sin.

    2).  Burial: down under or submerged – dying to self – “Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death…”  (Rom. 6:4a) = burial of old sin nature.

    3).   Resurrection: coming up out of the water – re-born, a re-birth – “In order that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.”  (Rom. 6:4b; Col. 3:1a)

    Baptism is an acknowledgment that the old man and his ways are dead – “Our old self was crucified with Him, that our body of sin might be done away with” – and a profession that henceforth we are living a new life – “that we should no longer be slaves to sin,” “So we too might walk in newness of life.”  (Rom. 6:6,4)

    If you are a believer and have never followed Christ’s command to publicly proclaim your faith through the waters of baptism and are interested in making this statement of your faith, please speak with Pastor Jeff Welch or Pastor Lyman Flenner.
