WORSHIP

Worship is an activity that touches every area of our lives, and it is central to what we are about at Cedar Creek Bible Church. We strive to bring every aspect of our services into conformity to the teachings of God’s Word, and we attempt to live out its precepts before the world around us. 
 
 
 

 

 

GROW

We believe the call to discipleship is a lifelong pursuit, and we are committed to helping one another grow continually toward an authentic Christlikeness that includes both head knowledge and life application. The sufficiency of scripture is the foundation of our ministry, and we try to live and grow by it.
 
 
 

 

 

SERVE

Since Christ so willingly served us by giving himself for our sins, it is our goal to freely give ourselves to serve one another and to advance the work of Christ’s kingdom in the world. We encourage all our members to invest themselves wholeheartedly into ministry and joyfully use their gifts for the edification of the body. 
 
 
 

 COVID-19 RESPONSE

3/17/20 Update
In light of the governor’s most recent orders and the current recommendations of the CDC, the CCBC leadership team has decided to cancel all services beginning now and lasting through Sunday, April 5. We do not take this decision lightly, but we are confident that the Lord is directing in all of this for the good of his people. We rest in his provision, and we will continue to care for one another as opportunity arises. If you find yourself isolated and in need of assistance, please reach out to other church members or the church leadership. It would be our privilege to minister to you in whatever ways we can. If you find yourself with extra time on your hands, contact a fellow church member! If you have children at home, spend some extra time in family worship! There are still many opportunities for us to love one another and serve the Lord. We are in this together, and with the Lord’s help we will get through this until we can begin meeting together again as usual. In the meantime, we will continue to keep you posted on any new updates. Praying for you all!

 HOME STUDY #4 (3/29/20)

We will, this week, have been separated from one another by the coronavirus for two weeks. This forced separation is making me (Pastor Norton) long to greet you, to hear you sing praise to our God, to present our offerings to Him, and to open the Scriptures with you. This home study is no substitute for being together, but it does at least afford us an opportunity to think together.
 
Read the New Testament book of James. (Unless you have young children reading, it should take you only about 20 minutes.) Before you start, consider a handful of questions:
  • To whom did James write?
  • Why did he write this letter?
  • What blessings does James describe?
  • Are his readers in a tough spot?
  • How are they treating one another?
 
After reading James, consider a couple of application questions:
  • What similarities do you see between James’s readers and us?
  • What practical instruction does James give that you can apply to your life this week?
 
A Pastoral Note Regarding COVID-19
There is no longer any doubt that the novel coronavirus is a deadly and serious global pandemic. We must all take precautions to slow its spread. With that said, it may be encouraging to read what C. S. Lewis wrote in 1948 in response to the fear of the atomic bomb that was being expressed by Christians in Britain. As you read the following excerpt from “On Living in an Atomic Age,” substitute “COVID-19″ for “atomic bomb.”
 
“In one way we think a great deal too much of the atomic bomb. “How are we to live in an atomic age?” I am tempted to reply: “Why, as you would have lived in the sixteenth century when the plague visited London almost every year, or as you would have lived in a Viking age when raiders from Scandinavia might land and cut your throat any night; or indeed, as you are already living in an age of cancer, an age of syphilis, an age of paralysis, an age of air raids, an age of railway accidents, an age of motor accidents.” In other words, do not let us begin by exaggerating the novelty of our situation. Believe me, dear sir or madam, you and all
whom you love were already sentenced to death before the atomic bomb was invented: and quite a high percentage of us were going to die in unpleasant ways. We had, indeed, one very great advantage over our
ancestors—anesthetics; but we have that still. It is perfectly ridiculous to go about whimpering and drawing long faces because the scientists have added one more chance of painful and premature death to a
world which already bristled with such chances and in which death itself was not a chance at all, but a certainty. This is the first point to be made: and the first action to be taken is to pull ourselves together. If
we are all going to be destroyed by an atomic bomb, let that bomb when it comes find us doing sensible and human things—praying, working, teaching, reading, listening to music, bathing the children, playing tennis, chatting to our friends over a pint and a game of darts—not huddled together like frightened sheep and thinking about bombs. They may break our bodies (a microbe can do that) but they need not dominate our minds.”
 
May this crisis expose our weakness so that the strength of God may be evident in us!
