4/3 Easter and Coronavirus Update

To Our Dear CBC Family!

As we are learning to live differently during this time of social distancing, we have truly missed meeting with you all! We hope you have been able to join us on Sundays online through Facebook or YouTube, and we hope you have been able to keep in touch with others from our church family - this is when we most need to be caring for each other and allowing others to care for us.

We want to check in quickly, to keep you updated about how we will be connecting in the days ahead:

1. We will continue in our online platformj for the immediate foreseeable future. We need to honor our authorities and do all we can to help you and our community stay safe. You can join us for services and watch previous services on our facebook page ( facebook.com/cbcbishop ), and on our YouTube channel (search Calvary Baptist Church CBC of Bishop, CA).

2. This Sunday we plan to celebrate Communion together! We encourage you to be prepared by gathering your own supplies - bread or crackers and grape juice for you and your family. We will participate together at the end of the sermon time.

3. Many of our small groups have continued to meet, also moving from on-site to online through applications like Zoom. Please if you are in a group make that a priority, and if you are not in a group but would like to be contact one of us so we can get you connected.

4. Easter is coming! We will still be meeting online, and we hope you will not only join us but will reach out to your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and anyone you know who needs a church home - and will invite them to join us online. This will be a time of encouragement and hope!

5. Ministry is still happening through CBC, and we are also rallying to support our people and our community financially where there is need. If you are able to continue to give, we sincerely thank you and know you will continue to be blessed. Digital giving is quite easy and effective. Our giving link is https://cbcbishop.breezechms.com/give/online

You can also text “give” to 760-429-1239 and set up your giving. Of course you can still drop off offerings at the church office, mail them in to PO Box 636, or set up bill pay with your bank. Again, God bless you for your support as we continue to minister here.

Please feel free to contact us through our website, cbcbishop.com (soon to be back at.org),

or email one of us

(pastorrick@cbcbishop.org; ashtaylor223@yahoo.com; connie.caton@gmail.com).

Let’s stay connected, and invite God to show us how we can serve and help those around us. God bless you all, and together we really can make a difference!

Pastor Rick and the Elder Board
