Worship service update!

Here is some news on how we're moving forward in regards to in-person worship services.

June 24th Update

Hello CHBC family! 

Since the government first announced its new guideline of allowing up to 50 people to gather, our leadership has been busy working on our game plan for how to move forward, and we are very excited to begin welcoming you back.

The video below will walk you through what this will look like. Please take the time to watch it through to the end, and if you have any questions or feedback, reach out to one of our staff members or elders.

As you'll see in the video, you can reserve a spot to attend one of our live Thursday evening summer worship service recordings at 7:30 pm. The one exception will be a recording on Friday, August 14th instead of Thursday, August 13th. This will be to accommodate the travel schedule of our visiting missionaries, Jeff & Sonya Kilmartin. All you need to do is email reservations@mychbc.ca and let us know which service(s) you'd like to attend, as well as how many people will be joining you.  

In addition to the Thursday evening recording times, we will also be looking forward to hosting some Sunday morning 'watch parties' throughout the summer. Essentially, instead of watching the video recording at home alone, you can gather with others in the church sanctuary to watch the recording together. Those dates and times will be passed along in the next few weeks.

As the video makes clear, we want to reopen our worship services in a way that is accountable for the guidelines we are expected to implement and best ensures the safety of each person who attends. And though each of us might have different ideas of what needs to be required, we do expect that each person who participates will respect the guidelines reflected in the video above.

Thanks for your patience with our church leadership as we've navigated our way through these uncharted waters. Our CHBC staff, Council of Elders, and Board of Directors continue to meet regularly to plan, evaluate, and creatively push forward the purposes of our church. To that end, your prayers are very much appreciated.

As the apostle Paul prayed for the church in Rome (15:5-6), may the God who gives endurance and encouragement give us the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice we may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The Elders of CHBC
