Does Gathering Together for Worship Really Matter?

Jon Eric WoodwardWorship

On those days that you just don’t feel like rolling out of bed on a Sunday morning, and I’ve been there many times myself, let me assure you, it’s worth it! I’ll also confess gladly, that there has rarely, if ever, been a time where I regretted afterwards that I pushed through and came.  This is not a push to … Read More

Yes I Will

Josh SandsWorship

This past weekend it was my joy to serve on the worship team during the morning services. It’s hard to believe that I have played drums for 30 years now, and it is remarkable how the Lord has used music in my life over those years. I was able to play for two sitting US presidents during my high school … Read More

Forgetful Hearts

Shannon WilsonFaith, Hope, Worship

Easter is my favorite time of year. I recently heard that according to the church calendar, Easter actually lasts for 50 days. I would like to propose that we all commit to wearing pastel colors and provide Cadbury eggs to the congregation during these days at CBC. Who do I need to speak to about that?  (Joking, joking…) In all … Read More

Loving Like Amnon

Susan BlackFaith, Hope, Worship

The appalling and unsettling story of Amnon and Tamar in 2 Samuel 13 was the subject matter of Aaron’s recent messages on sexual sin and past trauma. The passage paints a grim picture: In Amnon’s broken desire for his half-sister, he “made himself ill.” After he had violated her, Scripture describes Amnon’s twisted emotional response: “… for the hatred with … Read More

3 Ways to Worship

Jake BoremFaith, Worship

While every action and every thought is a platform for worshiping God, there is just something about worshiping God through music and singing that really helps us to redirect our minds and hearts away from whatever they might be latched onto, and place it back onto God. Worshiping God through music is a way of tuning our hearts back to … Read More

Easy to Forget

Haley TallmanWorship

Sometimes in corporate worship, we can get wrapped up in the music, be distracted by things around us or sing a song so much it becomes easy to forget what we’re singing. Here at CBC, we’re committed to theologically rich songs that point our hearts towards the Father and magnify Jesus. We’re careful in our song selections and it’s something … Read More

Why Weddings Move Us

Jon Eric WoodwardWorship

I’ve had the opportunity to either attend or participate in five weddings since March. The last one was my daughter’s wedding which I both walked her down the isle and officiated the ceremony. What a joy filled time weddings are. They bring out emotions and feelings that we sometimes don’t feel at any other occasion. There is a particular kind … Read More

Proclaim and Rest in God

Josh SandsFaith, Worship

And I, when I came to you, brothers, did not come proclaiming to you the testimony of God with lofty speech or wisdom. For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. And I was with you in weakness and in fear and much trembling, and my speech and my message were not in plausible … Read More

Extol.

Jon Eric WoodwardWorship

Psalm 117 “Praise the Lord, all you nations; extol Him, all you peoples. For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord!“ God calls all peoples, every tribe, every tongue, everyone on the planet to worship Him. In this shortest chapter of the Bible, the writer of the Psalm calls everyone … Read More
