Old Sacramento/DOCO (2:30pm to 4:30pm)
Old Sacramento is buzzing with people on weekends and during special events, and on Sunday, we expect both. The saints will be passing out candy and tracts in goodie bags, and seeking to engage people in Gospel conversations. Join us, and engage as much or as little as you like. Join the Telegram group or contact Pastor Ben to sign up.
Church Building Porch (5:00pm to 7:00pm)
Since our church building is set within a residential neighborhood, we are leaving our "porch light on" and inviting our neighborhoods to meet us in a booth on our property where they can receive candy and tracts. Fellowship with other saints, while we engage our community with the Gospel, and some sugar. Join the Telegram group or contact Pastor Ben to sign up.
Church Neighborhood (5:30pm to 7:30pm)
During the prime time when families are walking from house to house, walk with them, or join Pastor Ben on the CBC pedicab to ride through the Fab40's and continue to engage the community around our new church building with "Beats + Treats," playing music and finding a new friend to meet. Join the Telegram group or contact Pastor Ben to sign up.

Missions Class - Guest Speaker
You are cordially invited to come to meet and hear from Pastor Raed and Minar Awabdeh this Sunday morning at 8:15 am, October 31st. They have been engaged in Syrian refugee resettlement and outreach for over the last twelve years in Greater Sacramento. This gospel ministry has expanded to reach other Arabs coming from the Middle East, most recently the resettlement of the Afghani people. They have established an Arab Church as well as a Learning Center.
Churches in the greater Sacramento area have partnered with their organization, Arab American Learning Center, in reaching these Muslims for Christ. Come hear about the enormous opportunities for Gospel outreach as they share with CBC in our Global mission equipping class exploring future partnerships. The class begins at 8:15 am in the little gym (adjacent to the main gym).
Please REGISTER to let us know you are coming so we can better accommodate everyone.
Baptisms - This Sunday
If you missed the last baptism, join us Sunday, October 31st and enjoy the testimonies on part two of our baptisms. We are so excited to celebrate this occasion as Allison Toth, Isaac Hinds, Joel Lopez-Trejo, and Mark Vovnyuk proclaim their faith through their verbal testimonies and water baptism.
