EC FAMILY GATHERING (11 AM)

If you consider EC your home, please join us at 11 am on the regular Sunday School Zoom meeting (english.cbcwla.org/gather). We will have an English Congregation Family Gathering to discuss ministry updates and hear from you! See you there!

 

BAPTISMS

Praise God that 3 brothers and sisters were baptized this quarter. May God bless them. The ceremony was recorded and will be broadcast on cbcwla.org/live today after Sunday School.

 

CHURCH MEMBERSHIP REGISTRATION

The annual church membership registration period is currently ongoing and will close this Saturday (10/31). Current members that have not yet received a renewal email should check their spam/junk folders, or renew their membership at cbcwla.org/members2020 before the registration period ends. You should receive an email confirming your membership once you have successfully renewed it. If you have any questions regarding membership renewal, please email Joseph Huang at [email protected]. If you are interested in becoming a member, please contact Pastor Nick or an English Ministry Team member for more information.

Daylight Saving Time ends next Sunday at 2 am, so don’t forget to set your clocks one hour back!

 

LORD’S SUPPER (11/1)

We will be observing the Lord’s Supper next Sunday during the worship service. If you are a baptized believer, we encourage you to prepare to partake with us and remember to have your bread and cup elements ready.

 

COWORKERS’ MEETING (11/1)

There will also be a coworkers’ meeting next Sunday at 1:45 PM via Zoom at cbcwla.org/meet. All coworkers are encouraged to participate. If you are a fellowship leader, you will be requested to give a brief report on your fellowship after the meeting.

 

PASTORAL REFLECTIONS

Pastor Hsiao and Pastor Wang are each posting a series of articles on a Christian response to the COVID-19 pandemic. A few of them have already been translated into English and can be found here. If you’d like to help with the translation process, please contact a member of EMT. The Chinese versions can be found here (Pastor Hsiao) and here (Pastor Wang).

 

ATTENDANCE & CONTACT FORM

Got a prayer request to share? Want to give some encouragement to those who are serving? We have a new online feedback form here. Please also take a minute to fill out the form each week that you worship in the company of others, to help us get a more accurate sense of who we’re reaching through the live stream worship service. Thank you!

 

MEET & GREET

Join us for an informal time to hangout via Zoom after Worship Service and Sunday School in the Sunday School Zoom meeting. The link is in the YouTube video description. Be sure your display name includes your first and last name so we know who you are and can let you into the meeting!
