Our Mission: 
We exist to magnify God and spread a passion for His glory by making disciples and shepherding them to value Jesus Christ above everything else.
Preparing Our Hearts for Christmas
by Pastor Patrick Carmichael
Well, Thanksgiving is in the rear view mirror and Christmas is almost here (24 days to be exact but who's counting...oh wait, I AM!!!!). As we enter the busy month of December, it can be so easy to be pulled away from worship and wonder to commercialism and consumerism. Throughout this month we need Linus to stand up on a daily basis, recite Luke 2:8-14 ending with, "Glory to God in the highest and on earth, peace, goodwill toward men," and say loud and clear, "that's what Christmas is all about Charlie Brown!" 

We need constant reminders of the glory of God incarnate, Emmanuel, God with us! So, to that end, I wanted to pass along some links to daily advent readings that can encourage your heart, stir you to worship, and lead you to child-like wonder and awe at the miracle of Christmas.
 
An excellent book from Paul Tripp
 
Daily Readings from John Piper
 
We gave this book out last year...
 
...and here are more from Tim Chester
 

Family Bible Hour and Worship Service THIS SUNDAY!
THIS SUNDAY ONLY...

Family Bible Hour and our Worship Service will meet upstairs in the Heritage Library. There is an elevator available for those who would like to use it.

See you Sunday!

Christ Bible Church Christmas Party
Come enjoy a celebration of the birth of Jesus! Bring a white elephant gift (one per family, not more than $10. Bring something you'd want to receive. Stealing will be allowed!) You may want to bring a sweater or jacket in case it's warm enough to be outside. Refreshments provided.

Christmas Service
Our CBC Christmas Service will be on Sunday, December 24th, Christmas Eve morning. (No Christmas Eve night service). We will not be having Family Bible Hour or Children's Ministry that morning, though this will be a very "family friendly" service! Please bring your children with you to church! We WILL have our regular Fellowship Time/refreshments at 10:00, regular worship service at 10:30.  

Who will you invite to come?
