Re-Dedication of the Stained Glass Windows
Our precious and beautiful stained glass windows were re-installed a few weeks ago and they look wonderful! We will re-dedicated the windows during our Sept. 30th Worship Service. Donations to our Windows and Doors Fund are still welcome.
Join us for our next Men’s Breakfast on Saturday, Oct. 6th, 8:30 AM in Fellowship Hall. Bring a dish to share if you’re able.
Mark your calendar for Rally Day, Sunday September 9th! Sunday School for all ages resumes at 9:00 AM and our Worship Service moves back to the regular 10:30 AM time slot. See you there!
It’s been a busy summer at CBC! We provided a water station at the 3rd of July Parade, held a school supplies drive, participated in the Back to School Block Party hosted by Warrenville Persons in Ministry, and took part in National Night Out. Thanks to everyone who helped make these events successful!
We’ve had a number of updates happening at church as well. Our Stained Glass Window restoration project is nearly complete and we’re looking forward to the re-installation very soon. We’ve also been working on upgrading our lighting to energy-efficient LED fixtures. The Agapè classroom has been undergoing a renovation with new flooring, paint, light fixtures and ceiling fans, plus a number of other small touches. The much-anticipated big reveal will happen before Labor Day. Planning and fundraising for new doors is ongoing. Stay tuned for updates and timeline on this important project.
