September DBR

Daily Bible Reading (DBR) prepares 1st-5th Graders for what they will learn on Sunday. Your child will discover new and amazing things about God, Jesus and the Bible! Encourage your child to have a journal and write what they learn each day. Set a goal to spend time daily reading the Bible and praying with your child. Or encourage them to do so independently.

Obedience to God

The month’s Daily Bible Reading (DBR) focuses on Bible people who were obedient to God. Kids will hear that Joshua and Caleb trusted God’s commands even when everyone around them did not. They will learn how Joshua obeyed God at the battle of Jericho, and they will see how Elijah trusted God as the one true God when others worshiped false gods. Kids also will dive into the story of Daniel in the lions’ den and learn that God helps people to obey Him even when bad things are happening.

In each of these stories, kids will see how God is faithful when His children are obedient and how He loves His children even when they fail to obey.

  • Your grandfather missed your soccer game.
  • Your sister lost the pieces to your favorite game.
  • Your dad ran over your bike with his car.

KEEP IT TOGETHER
Item Needed: › pencils › plastic tablecloth › 1 cup cornstarch › 1/2 to 1 cup of clear gel soap › small bowl › spoon › wet wipes

Lead the group to make putty:

  • Add one cup of cornstarch and half a cup of liquid soap into a bowl.
  • Stir the ingredients together with a spoon until it’s too hard to mix. Then use your fingers. If the mixture is dry, add more soap.

Give everyone a piece of the putty and try the following experiments:

  • “What happens when you pull it slowly?” (It stretches.)
  • “What happens when you pull it quickly?” (It breaks.)

Explain that unforgiveness is like putty when you pull it quickly. It can cause hardships, hurt feelings, and cause people to act in ways they normally would not. Unforgiveness can “break” relationships.

Demonstrate by pulling the putty quickly.

Put the putty back together and remind kids that asking for forgiveness and forgiving those who have hurt us is showing honor to God.

Share that Jacob lived away from his family for many years after he stole from his brother Esau. Forgiveness brought the family back together.

  • Ask God to help other people fin God that don’t know him.

Road to Regathering Update – August 16, 2020

We’re back.

August 16, 2020

Snapshot:

  2. In-Person Worship Gatherings, and Kids Ministry Resuming 8/23. (Hallelujah!)
  3. Brand New Service Schedule Begins 8/23 for the Champions Campus.

CFBC is moving from Orange Phase to the Yellow Phase. Next Sunday, August 23, you will have the option to worship in-person or worship online.


CURRENT PHASE: YELLOW (beginning 8/23)


To God be the glory! We’ve kept a close eye on the data and the progress being made in our area, which triggers this change in our phases. We can’t wait to gather at each of our four campuses in just 7 days!

What about my kids?

Our Kids Ministry is excited to offer preschool and children’s ministry on Sunday mornings by reservation only during each worship hour. Babies – kinder will have fun learning about Jesus while building, painting, exploring, and playing in their life groups. 1st -5th graders will experience games, Bible study & life group hang outs in our new outdoor Kids Quest adventure.

Space is limited so be sure to visit championforest.org/kids for registration & more information.

New Sunday Schedule – Champions Campus

Please note the newly revised Sunday schedule for the Champions Campus (attached). Our main English service will move to 10:45am, and our main Spanish service will move to 12:15pm. We believe this change will best position us for future growth as we reach our community.


Church family, as you know, these past few months have taught us the importance of daily surrender. What does God have in store for us on the other side of this pandemic?

As we continue to coexist with COVID, know that next Sunday, August 23rd, will mark major progress as we gather in person to celebrate our Lord’s faithfulness. Invite someone into the journey!
