5th Thursday at the Food Pantry
On Thursday, Nov. 29th, at 5:00 PM, join our volunteer crew at the Warrenville Food Pantry. Newbies welcome, it’s fun and with a quick training you’re ready to go.
All CBC’s guys are welcome to join us on Saturday, December 1, 8:30 AM in Fellowship Hall for breakfast. Please bring a dish to share if you’re able. Afterwards, we’ll decorate the sanctuary for Advent.
CBC will be hosting Christmas Sharing again this year. Volunteers are needed all week, Sunday Dec 2 – Saturday Dec 8. We’ll be setting up on Sunday after church. To volunteer for other dates and times, please contact Pam W. Also welcome are donations of new and gently used clothes for all ages, toys and household goods. Every family has the opportunity to choose a new toy or gift item for every child in the family. Items suitable for teenagers are especially needed. All donations can be dropped off at the CBC Education Building basement.
Inclement Weather Procedures
It’s that time of year again, and winter has made an early appearance. In the case of bad weather or hazardous conditions, the most important thing is for everyone to be safe. Please do not travel to CBC for worship services or activities if you feel that doing so would be unsafe.
CBC facilities will close and activities will be cancelled if the following conditions exist:
- Severe weather warnings have been issued by the National Weather Service for conditions such as snow, ice, tornado, flood, wind chill, extreme heat
- Significant power outages in the area or at church facilities
- State of emergency declared by local, state or federal government
For Sunday School, Sunday Worship and mid-week services such as Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, etc., the Coordination Team will communicate closings and cancellations as follows:
- An announcement in two spots on the website: on the homepage as an “Event” and right here on The Buzz
- An announcement through our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/CBCWarrenvilleIL/
- An announcement on the CBC office voicemail: 630-393-9609
- A Coordination Team member will make every effort to telephone or email each CBC member that has provided contact information
Evening activities (e.g., Choir Practice, Youth Group, Ministry meetings, etc.) at church will be cancelled at the discretion of the person in charge or leading the activity. That same person is responsible for contacting participants.
Ongoing Food & Toiletries Drive
The Missions Team is sponsoring a food drive for the Warrenville Food Pantry on the first Sunday of each month. Donation of non-perishable food items are welcome. Most needed are canned vegetables, chunky soups, ketchup, mustard, BBQ sauce, and mayonnaise. All types of toiletries are also in high demand – toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, soap, shampoo, diapers of all sizes, and toilet paper. Collection box is located by the coat racks.
