devoted to Christ
Church CLOSED for Wednesday Bible Study, (3/18, 3/25) and Sunday Worship Service, (3/22, 3/29)
Dear Church Family,
On Monday, President Trump asked the American people for greater restrictions for the next 15 days and that only groups of 10 or less, congregate.
During a news conference today, President Trump repeated the guidelines he announced Monday.
"We are asking everyone to work from home, if possible, to postpone unnecessary travel and limit social gatherings," he said.
He focused on how these guidelines are just for the next 14 days or so. Then we would see if we were stemming the spread of the virus with these measures. He emphasized the dire consequences of loss of human life, if we do not impact the spread of the Coronavirus quickly.
Pastor Kirk and the church leadership, in submission to President Trump's requests, are closing the church for Wednesday Bible Study, (3/18, 3/25) and Sunday Worship Service, (3/22, 3/29), for the next two weeks. If there is any change in the length of time we will be closed, we will let you know.
Keep it Simple
Seek to Serve
"Since you have in obedience to the truth purified your souls for a sincere love of the brethren, fervently love one another from the heart. (1 Peter 1:22)"
At the Chico Bible Church, we have purposed to “keep it simple.” Rather than rely on programs, we encourage individual ministry to one another. Every member of the Body of Christ is necessary and has an important function in the Church. We seek to serve and build one another up in love using the gifts Christ has provided.
At the Chico Bible Church, we don’t want the “busy-ness” of life or “church activities” to eclipse a simple devotion to Christ. Sunday morning and Wednesday evening services are the “cornerstones” of our assembly. The men meet one morning a month for a Men’s Breakfast to share breakfast, pray, and study God’s Word (2 Timothy 2:1-2). The ladies also meet monthly for a Ladies Breakfast of instruction and encouragement from God’s Word (Titus 2:3-5). We share “Family Dinners” together after service throughout the year (aka Potluck) which provide extended times of fellowship. In addition, we enjoy other times of fellowship, Bible study, and musical worship in one another’s homes.
