April Pastor's Pen
God has been faithful over the past few years! We have been blessed with needing more help due to the growth we have experienced. Even with the hurdle of COVID-19, God continues to pour out his blessing on our church.
Virtual Vacation Bible School – 95 Children, plus their families attended.
Smart Cookies – 16 students, and a first time EVER since we reopened in 2011,
we have a waiting list!
CCOB Youth Group – 15+ consistent youth each Wednesday this year.
C-Groups – A new ministry which provides spaces and opportunities for people to connect with each other in the church, grow together in Christ, and serve our community.
Childcare Ministry – This ministry has exploded! We have 5+ children each week, plus more babies to arrive this year!
Sunday School Classes – We have regathered, and have offered a first time EVER, Hybrid Sunday School Class!
Worship Services – We are LIVE each Sunday morning for our church members and many others who enjoy great worship and a relevant message.
Missions – We were able to bless those who were in financial distress by the pandemic by raising $8,050.00 for organizations in Franklin County to distribute to those in need. We fundraised $5,765 to help purchase a Milk Truck for Maranatha Ministries and we have offered a To-Go Meal to our community members every 1st Wednesday of the month. In December, we were able to provide 300 families with a mass food distribution.
And the list goes on…
God continues to bless the CCOB in ways that we can never imagine. God’s word says in 2 Corinthians 9:6, “Remember this: The person who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the person who sows generously will also reap generously.” Brothers and Sisters, I believe that we are in the mist of reaping generously in the Ministries of the Church. BUT … when we reap generously, that doesn’t mean that our work is done. It means there is MORE work to be done.
The famous saying, “more hands make less work” is what we are asking for. There are a lot of volunteer positions available that need to be filled to continue the growth of the blessings that we have received. Here is a list of what is needed to continue the Christian Education Ministries.

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
