This week at CBC

Dear covenant family,

I lifted my eyes to haven, and blessed the Most High for his dominion is an everlasting dominion and his kingdom endures from generation to generation – Daniel 4:34

Did you know that these words didn’t come from a Jewish believer, but from the heathen King Nebuchadnezzar? All this happened when Daniel’s walk with God was not just in private but lived out in public. Some may say it’s time to ‘hush’ our faith, but what will happen in our community if our faith is made public? Come and find 4 ways how Daniel’s life made a public impact this Sunday in our morning service in our sermon series: “Seek the Peace of the City”. In the evening, during growth group time, we will do session two of our planning time.

Questions for growth group:
1. What is the mission of your church?
2. What are your core strategies?
3. Is your programming balanced for each strategy? What are the strengths? What are the weaknesses?
4. What could be streamlined?
5. Why do you think God has placed you where you are right now in relation to your community?
