One Service Summer

Begins June 2 - August 18, 10 am

Announcing One Service this Summer

Beginning Sunday, June 2, 10 am

Following the success and popularity of combining the CHBC family together for worship last summer, with joy, we're excited to return to ONE SERVICE ON SUNDAYS THIS SUMMER starting on June 2!

This intentional season brings with it: 

Pronounced fellowship with folks in the church whom don’t often rub shoulders due to attending different services.

Unity, singing, praying, and receiving God’s word all together with one another.

Togetherness, inviting every generation to worship together as one people, exemplifying a posture of worship to the youth and kids, and gleaning a worshipful childlike faith in return.

Rest for key ministry leaders and Kids Ministry volunteers. 

A lil more context...

Summer is one of our busier seasons for guests. Many people are moving to the area and looking for church families. Because our membership is often traveling during the summer, we think one service is a great way for a new individual, couple, or family to see our body and experience corporate worship together. The Holy Spirit and the truth of the Word of course is the energy of our gathered worship, but a full sanctuary of believers under the power of the Spirit and Word is a great way for people to first experience our body.

Common Questions

  • What about Kids Ministry? In particular, our Kids Ministry (KM) is something several of you might be wondering about. We are working with our KM leaders to make sure that nothing changes in our priority or efforts with our kids. Our philosophy for Kids Ministry will continue to be a child discipleship model through this summer session. 
  • What about children with sensory concerns? If your child K-5th has sensory concerns and would be uncomfortable remaining in the Sanctuary for corporate worship, please reach out to Ashley Gyori for accommodations.
  • What about our hospitality team? We want to maintain a warm and welcoming spirit of hospitality this summer. As such, we will provide coffee service from 9:30-9:55 am, encouraging our members to arrive for a time of fellowship prior to the service. Reach out to Elizabeth Portnoy if interested in serving on the Connections team.
  • What about our adult classes? Summer is usually a slower time for our adult classes. In fact, several of our classes already plan to take a break. For those that continue through the summer, they will meet from from 8:45-9:45 am. Be sure to reach out to Martin Shin with questions.

Worshiping Together as Families this Summer

We're particularly excited about this summer for families at CHBC! From June 2 - August 18, parents along with their kid(s) (K-2nd) will be worshiping TOGETHER for the first half of our worship service before they’re dismissed to Kids Ministry. 3rd-5th grade kids will be with their families in the service throughout this summer. Our aim is to keep kids in mind with our worship service while also inviting them in to observe and participate in the regular corporate worship of the church.

Some specific things we’ll be adjusting are our

  • Corporate readings - being especially mindful of all generations,
  • Teaching meaningful and singable songs accessible to everyone,
  • A consistent use of the “Pass the Peace” element (both for fellowship, and an opportunity to get some wiggles out), and
  • Frequent participative moments, providing plenty of opportunities to stay engaged.
  • A weekly community worship guide will be available for 3rd-5th graders for pickup outside the Sanctuary doors.
  • We also encourage families to utilize the giving moment, passing the baskets, to teach kids about giving and as a tactile moment of engagement.

Have questions? Reach out to Geoff Grant (Worship Pastor).

A Call to Discipleship of our Kids this Summer

Each Sunday, we will continue to provide age-appropriate teaching and small group and prayer time for our K-2nd grade kids after they attend the worship time in the service. This will allow us to continue our scope and sequence plan for teaching through the Bible, stay connected with the kids over the summer in small group time, help them participate in our Summer Scripture Challenge, and mission moments such as OCC packing Sundays while being a part of the service worship time with their family. Providing Kids Ministry in this way will also allow us to personally welcome and introduce visiting kids and their families to our ministry. 

As a Kids Ministry volunteer, we hope you can stay engaged with KM over the summer. If you are volunteering with K-2nd grade, this one-service format will allow you to attend the worship time and leave right before the sermon at a designated point in the service to disciple our kids for the remainder of the service time.

If you're not currently serving in some capacity at CHBC, we'd invite you to participate in the mission of discipling the next generation here at CHBC.
