Lately I have been thinking about another kind of “presence”; one that has started to become more precious to me than ever before.

Since March of 2020 I have had a new appreciation for the physical gathering of believers every Sunday.  This thing we call the local church.  As they say, “You don’t know what you have until it’s gone!” This regular gathering that has happened for literally centuries all over the world, was wildly disrupted during the pandemic and for many it has still not returned to normal.  Out of necessity many churches shifted to online services in order to accommodate people who were spiritually hungry but physically afraid to gather in person.  This was understandable in the beginning but unfortunately habits were formed and many people never came back to church at all. This is where I come back to the other idea of “Presence”.  Your presence at church matters. When you are at church there is a mutual benefit for yourself and others. Likewise when you are not there, that felt benefit is missing for everyone. You absence is noticed even if it is never verbalized because certain things that would normally happen are suddenly not happening for you or someone else!

In Hebrews 10:23-25 we find a few relevant challenges for us all. (23 Let’s hold firmly to the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; 24 and let’s consider how to encourage one another in love and good deeds, 25 not abandoning our own meeting together, as is the habit of some people, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.)
In other words, there are so many great things that happen when all the believers are physically “present” and we hope that each of you recognize how important it is to see you at CBC every Sunday. We want you to know that you are welcome every time the doors are open. If you haven’t been in a while, Sunday is a great time to “Come Home” and even bring a friend or two along. 
Hope to see you soon! God Bless!
