April 2015 News: You helped us feed a family

Daniel and I were downtown last week and met Gary. After being laid off from work he was unsure of how he was going to feed his 8 year old girl, Faith. We provided them with dinner and with your help (GIVE funds) we also gave them a few weeks worth of food. Wish you could have seen their faces!

 
Last Sunday we enjoyed the thrill of standing with a few members of our church as they made their faith in Jesus public, through water baptism. Pictures an be seen on the new Instagram for church @CBCBaltimore or Facebook.com/CBCBaltimore We already have two more people ready to be baptised. If you would like to be water baptised please contact me.

Eulalia Bell Memorial Service

A wonderful member of our church family, Eulalia Bell, went to be with Jesus this past Sunday after a battle with cancer. Her daughter Jamera, sister Lisa Beatty, and all of the family have been such an important part of our church over the past few years.

This month many of our church members are suffering the loss of a loved one or another life challenge. God loves you. Rebecca and I love you. God sees what you’re going through and can be a real help, a source of strength. You are not alone. There’s no better time for us to be a church family. Let’s love on each other, pray, be a real help, and send an encouraging word to each other this week. Here’s a few Bible studies that I’ve prepared for you to help: http://bit.ly/1EyMghg

Everyone in the church is invited to each of the events listed here, to remember Eulalia. Please come and show love to your spiritual family.

November 2014 News

Well, I am looking forward to getting my knee fixed (with surgery) this Thursday. Don’t be alarmed, but I expect to be doing my Christmas shopping on crutches this year. Physical therapy starts Monday and I’m feeling good about it. 

Rebecca and I love you guys and pray for you each week. Please feel free to let us know how we can be praying for you.
 
You won’t want to miss this Sunday’s message: 
“What will put things right?” Come ready to listen. It will be life changing, yes – life changing, seriously. It will be a perfect Sunday to bring a friend – in particular someone who feels they are “far from God”. This series is a great opportunity for you to ask questions!
 
If you’ve missed a Sunday, here’s the four questions we’re looking at: 
  1. Where did we come from?     From God: the One and the relational
  2. Why did things go so wrong?     Because of sin: bondage and condemnation
  3. What will put things right?     Christ: incarnation, substitution, restoration
  4. How can I be put right?     Through faith: grace and trust
Our key verse is: “For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes,” Romans 1:16
Our focus is: A deeper understanding of the good news results in lasting life change.
Remember you can always listen to previous messages on iTunes or at:
Please remember that you are invited to watch the Ravens games with us. We enjoy lunch, laughs, and wins! Please let us know that you’re coming and we’ll coordinate lunch.
Below I have included some important information about upcoming activities. Jump in! Get involved with the life of your friends, your fellow believers, the church!
Thank you for all of your help and for praying me through this recovery!
