Hurricane Dorian Relief
CBC supports One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS), an ecumenical effort to provide disaster relief funds around the world with an annual offering. American Baptist International Ministries has used OGHS funds to provide an initial emergency relief grant for hurricane survivors in the Bahamas. Those wishing to support relief efforts can do so through a designated donation to CBC, through American Baptist International Ministries online portal, or by sending checks directly to International Ministries. Please designate your contributions “OGHS–Bahamas Relief” on the memo line of your check. If donating online, please select “Hurricane Dorian (Bahamas)” from the drop-down support menu.
Dave V. is organizing a Bingo night at his nursing facility and you’re invited! Mark your calendar for Saturday, September 28th. Watch this space for full details on time and address. We’re collecting small items for prizes if you’d like to contribute. Just bring them to church. Dave misses being with us at CBC, so this is our chance to bring CBC to him!
