In keeping with the “Guidelines for America” provided by President Trump and the government’s infectious disease control experts, the elders and deacons have agreed to cancel all Community Bible Church (CBC) ministries and events for the foreseeable future.
While there is no substitute for us to gather together, due to the health concerns of the spread of the Corona Virus, we will begin to provide a weekly video sermon that can be accessed at our church website - cbcsa.org. We plan for the church office to remain open during our normal office hours (Tu-F, 9:00-1:00). Thank you for your understanding during these unique days.
Pray for and encourage one another as you have opportunity, particularly those at greatest risk.
Pray how God might use you to assist others with greater needs. It may be that we can be a help to those who are in need of groceries and other supplies and are not able to travel or are not comfortable going to our local grocery stores.
Pray for our government leadership, medical personnel and all those in our communities affected by this pandemic.
Pray that the Lord would use this trial to refine the church and to draw people to Himself.
In the coming weeks we will strive to stay in touch with our church family via email, phone calls, and regular information and notifications through our website. We decided on Tuesday night that it is time to update our website in order for it to be a place where all of us can regularly go to in order to stay in touch with CBC news, along with sermons that can be listened to online.
You can give to the church via the following methods: physical mail; bill pay, or online giving through Paypal on our website.

This is a unique time in our country, and as you are aware new information is constantly coming out. Thank you for your flexibility. If there are any changes we will let you know as soon as possible.
Please continue to pray for our elders and deacons, our church, our community, our nation and the world. While this situation is certainly not comfortable, it provides unique opportunities to selflessly care for each other, bear each other’s burdens, and share the gospel with unbelievers. The Lord is our refuge and we take great comfort that He is at work through this pandemic.
If you have any questions, please contact the church office.
