Spring Festival - Community Outreach
We are bringing the party–Spring Festival–to our church neighborhood on April 16! We all know that a festival is not complete without bounce houses, dunk tank, carnival games, cotton candy (that makes your hand sticky), nachos (that makes your hand sticky), and otter pops (that makes your hand sticky).
You can totally volunteer to serve at this cool festival–there are many ways you can help! We will be distributing festival flyers throughout the neighborhood, which will also include an invitation to our Easter Service! Please sign-up to be part of the team passing out invitation flyers in the weeks leading up to the event. What a way to meet our neighbors! We also need help at the event to supervise many of the attractions.
Women's Retreat - May 12-14
**Women’s Retreat Alert** Space is limited so register ASAP! This event is open for CBC members and those who attend CBC regularly. Registration will close on May 1, 2022 or when capacity has been reached.
The important stuff: Zephyr Point Conference Center, which has hotel-style guest rooms for 4 people, with private bathrooms, bedding, pillows, towels, 2 queen beds (bed pre-made!). Price for all this plus 5 meals: $150 (if you register before April 1) and $155 after April 1.
The focus of the retreat will be on the beautiful book of Philippians, where we will learn how to love, live, treasure and think about Christ by submitting our thought life to the glorious reality of the Gospel.

Church Camp - Save the Date
This year, our signature church camp event will be August 3-6 (Wednesday-Saturday) at the Hartstone Bible Camp in Potter Valley. For your planning purposes, please make note of these dates as you negotiate time-off at work and as you put together your summer travel plans.
For those who know, you know: every meal prepared with love, epic competition (volleyball, basketball, etc.), the Word PREACHED, and wonderful conversations in the car ride there as you lose cell coverage the last 15% of your journey to Hartstone.
Ministry Fair - March 20th
This is the moment you have been waiting for! Do you want to get plugged into a CBC ministry and have been wondering where to get started? This Ministry Fair is for you!
After service on March 20, you can see the various ministry opportunities and sign up to express your interest in serving in a particular ministry. All members (or aspiring members) are encouraged to use their gifts and resources to serve Christ by serving one another within the church.
Men's Breakfast - March 26th
Save the date! At the Men’s Breakfast, we will continue our series on “Theology Matters.” At the last breakfast, we learned about “bibliology”--our brother, Jonathan Reed, helped explain that the bible is (1) the inspired Word of God; and (2) the bible is entirely sufficient. We were blessed by the unbeatable combo of breakfast burrito and a deep dive into theology.
Come join our next breakfast, which will be at the new church building (1101 51st Street) from 8-10am on March 26. Please take a second to register to help our brothers prepare our food.
