News and Updates
Members Meeting this Sunday
This Sunday, we are having a Members Meeting from 5:00pm to 6:30pm on Zoom. We will be giving some church family updates, hear from our Members, and pray together in small groups. Members and those who are pursuing membership will receive the Zoom login information by Friday.
If you are having trouble accessing our church "meetings" on Zoom, Leslie Ross has kindly made these resources for you. Thank you Leslie!
Can anyone in the church help with the following needs?
- Missionaries Sophia and Elliot Kang need a place to stay beginning on Friday, April 22 for a 14-Day Quarantine from their return from Malawi. If they cannot find a vacant property of some sort, they will be confined to a bedroom for two weeks.
- From last week, our church ministered to a couple that changed their mind on abortion. There is a need for a place to live/help with rent for 4-6months, transportation, and a job for a 17y.o. male. Please contact Ben Ito if you have an idea.
- Last week, a twenty-something father was laid off recently from a plumbing/remodel job. He did not respond to the Gospel, but shared the prayer request to “not become homeless” since he got laid off. He was on the phone with a staffing agency while waiting outside. If you might have a lead, please contact Ben Ito.
- Video Editor- If you have a secret talent of editing video (e.g. Final Cut, Premiere) please contact email@example.com.
Alternatives Pregnancy Center
As an update, Alternatives Pregnancy Center (alternativespc.org) was formally added as an evangelism partner of City Bible Church back in February. They have been an integral part of our "success" at Planned Parenthood, and we love their ministry because they preach the Gospel to every client. Our church supports this ministry financially as they have supported us in providing medical services and proclaiming the Gospel to the women we have referred to them.
Church family, if you are in need, we want to remind you that there is a form located here and on the Quarantine Page, to help you communicate your need. Please. If you are in need, your members desire to love you.
The Family Devotional
Tonight (Wednesday), we are doing a Family Devotional for you and your children unpacking what was taught in the Sunday School Video. View the details and signup here, or go to our Children's Ministry Page.
ICYMI (In Case You Missed It)
If you miss the sound of the CBC body singing like we do, listen to this set that was recorded at Hiram Johnson three weeks before quarantine. It has the sound of the chairs and everything.
Quarantine Care Package Page
As a reminder, we have centralized our primary resources for remaining connected in Quarantine, including the following devotionals by our Pastors. You will find them at https://citybiblesacramento.com/quarantine.
Saints, for Group Messaging between Members, we want to highly recommend the Telegram App. Click the image below to view details to download it.

Did you know that one of the easiest, and most passive ways you can help the advance of the Gospel, is by interacting with our Church social media presence (and other ministries). Even a simple "like" will help put our posts in the view of your non-believing friends.
