Devos & Donuts (1.27.2018)

Bible reading is one of the most important habits Christians can develop. Through the Bible, God teaches His people about His own character, how they are to live, and gives wonderful examples of God’s faithfulness and power. One of our biggest hopes in our youth group is to pass along the ability to read the Bible. We know it’s hard, but that’s where Devos & Donuts can help! We’ll be meeting up to have some donuts, talk about Scripture reading, and work through a few different Bible study methods (all coming from the book Learn To Study The Bible by Pastor Andy Deane) to help us grow in our reading ability. Here’s what you’ll want to bring: A Bible (for reading) An Appetite (for eating) A Notebook (not for eating) Something to write with (also not for eating) Click here to download a permission slip...

Winter Retreat Still On For January 5th – 7th

Despite today’s inclement weather, the Ignite Winter Retreat will still occur as scheduled from January 5th to January 7th. We have contacted the retreat center and they were very confident both in their ability to plow their facilities and in the road conditions in their area when we will be driving up. We also consulted the pastoral staff about getting the bus ready to go and the traveling conditions of tomorrow afternoon and are confidently going ahead with the retreat. We also recognize that the weekend of the retreat will be extremely cold. We are asking that you send your children very bundled up and with the proper clothes to stay warm. We will be able to keep the vast majority of the retreat indoors, but children should come dressed appropriately for the below-freezing weather. If there are any questions you have regarding this, please feel free to email Pastor Brian at brianhiggins@ccob.org and he will happily address any concerns you may...
