Nothing like hot soup or chili to warm up a January day. January 28 our church is asked to serve a meal for the Homeless at Oregon Hill Baptist Center. This time we will probably need to distribute packaged soup and sandwiches due to COVID 19 restrictions. Please contact Nancy or Rosa if you can prepare a crockpot of soup or chili or help make sandwiches and prepare takeout packages. Details will be announced closer to the date.
Happy New Year!
Most of us are looking forward to a new year and turning the calendar from 2020. We all pray that 2021 will be a better year and that there will be some return to normalcy.
I think we all recognize that “normal’ is a relative term and that likely the “normal’” is going to look much different than what we have known.
Likely for CABC we will remain with just in person worship for the winter, spring and summer months. It is my hope that we will be able to return to a more regular schedule in the Fall with in person Bible Study and in person Mid-week activities.
We will figure out what that all looks like as we move through the year. Likely we will move to one Adult Bible Study group and also plan for our children to have a class or two. The Fall is a long way off, but we will begin having those discussions so that we are prepared for in person Bible Study when we can do it safely.
I will continue to do the virtual recordings even when we resume more in person activities. There are those who cannot come in person and they enjoy the videos.
Nov. 29 – Dec. 6 is Week of Prayer for International Missions
Give generously as you are able, as the needs are great.

Fall Business Meeting
Sunday, October 11
9:30 AM Outside on the Parking Lot
Our Fall Business Meeting has been scheduled for Sunday, October 11. The meeting will take place between the Outdoor In Person Worship and the In- door In Person Worship at 9:30 AM.
The two main items of business are: the Deacons will appoint the Church Nominating Committee for the 2020-2021 Church Year and approval of a mail ballot for adopting the 2021 Budget. The reason for the mail ballot is to allow more members of the congregation to be able to have a voice in approving the budget for 2021.
There will also be a report from the Treasurer on our Financial Status for 2020. If you are not able to stand for this meeting, you are encouraged to bring your own chair.
