Update From Pastor Stephen

Published March 17, 2020 at 7:30am


Dear Church Family, 

We love our community. Helping people is at the heart everything we do. At this moment, for the health and well-being of our neighbors, the best way we can help is to make adjustments on how we do church. Our goal is to “flatten the curve” of the spread of COVID-19. Please note the following updates… 

Worship Services
Our online experience in English at 10am & Spanish at 11:30am on Sundays will continue at least through April 5.

Church Activities
All on-campus activities and events, including our FLC, are suspended through April 10th. This includes our Journey to the Cross event at our Jersey Village Campus.

CMC – Food Pantry
The Food Pantry in our Community Ministry Center at our Champions Campus will continue to serve our neighbors with a drive-thru experience. Select this LINK for a list of items you can donate to help us meet specific needs. 

Online Giving
Let’s continue to pray fervently and to give faithfully. You can give online via PushPay or by mailing directly to the church finance office (15555 Stuebner-Airline, Houston TX 77069) so we can continue the Lord’s work effectively and efficiently. God blesses our obedience and rewards our generosity.

How To Help
Our staff is diligently working on a system to help meet the needs of our community in a way that will add value while abiding by the latest updates provided by our local, state, and national authorities. Please stay tuned for more information coming soon. Remember, you can always see the most important information by visiting our website at championforest.org.

“‘And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”  

Mark 12:30-31 (ESV) 

Thank you for being flexible and interruptible. Our faith is in God and we know He will provide for us every step of the way. He is faithful. He is dependable. He is reliable.

Following Jesus Every Day, 

Pastor Stephen Trammell

Father & Son Baptism Moment

Seeing people baptized is one of our favorite moments each week at Champion Forest. Baptism is a clear picture of identifying with Christ’s death and resurrection. When someone trusts in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, the next step of obedience is to be baptized. It’s an outward symbol of a heart that’s been changed.

Last week, CFBC member Michael Skibinski had the honor of baptizing his 13-year-old son, Elijah. Elijah admits there were some nerves going in to the baptism tank…

“I felt nervous at first, but then I was excited. (Especially since the water heater was on!) I have been waiting to profess my love toward the Lord in this way for a long time.  When my older brother was baptized a while ago, I had always wished to be baptized since that day.  I loved the idea that I could tell my friends why I got baptized and how they could go to heaven as well.”

You could tell from Elijah’s smile how much it meant to him. Being baptized is a clear marker in one’s life in which they can always look back to as a milestone of their faith. Michael was a proud daddy!

“As parents we work hard in hopes that our children will one day be able to make it on their own, but when we see our children make choices to follow the Lord with their life, and make these choices on their own, there are now words to describe the emotion, only a proud dad! I suppose, in some very small way, I understand a little bit of what the Father must have felt when he declared, “This is my Son in whom I’m well pleased.” This is a moment that my son and I will have and remember forever! I know as parents we often fail, but I am so thankful that I know that God’s work in Elijah has only just begun, because God is faithful to keep working in Elijah for the rest of his life.”


If you ware interested in getting baptized, or have questions about your faith, we would love to talk to you!
