CRBC Sunday Service

December 6, 2020

Welcome

On behalf of the Staff, and Board at Campbell River Baptist Church, we would like to welcome you and thank you for connecting with us today.

If you know someone who is not receiving our weekly newsletters and would like to, please encourage them to do so by calling into the office (250) 287-8831 or go directly to the website.

We are so thankful that you have continued to be the Church in so many ways each and every week!! We are the Church. Our worship of God is not confined by the walls of our building. We cannot give up gathering (Hebrews 10:23-25a), we cannot stop loving, we cannot stop giving, we cannot stop growing.

We have an opportunity to serve our faith community here in Campbell River and we want to provide you and your family with resources to stay connected to God’s word and to each other during this time. 

Please use this Order of Service as a springboard to start your time of worship this morning.

God Bless

Title: Into The Rat Hole 

Have you ever had to live in a smelly, dirty, squalid place even for a night? There is a Bible passage that speaks about the King of Heaven having to live in the servants quarters. This is what Christmas is all about -- Emmanuel, God with us -- coming to live in our rat hole.

Children’s Ministry

Below is a list of children’s resources that you can use to lead your family or small group gathering.  

Activities:

Idea • Ornaments:

Materials:

  • 1 1/4 cups of baking soda
  • 3/4 cup of cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup of water

Instructions:

  1. Measure ingredients in a pot and heat on medium while stirring constantly.
  2. Before long the mixture will begin to thicken and come together in a mass. You'll know it's done when it resembles mashed potatoes.
  3. Allow the mixture to cool off slightly (approx 10 min) and then roll out onto waxed paper (or parchment paper).
  4. Cut out your ornaments using a cookie cutter, mason jar ring, cup etc.
  5. Then use a straw to make a hole near the top of the ornament and if doing the heart imprint, make two fingerprints on the ornament.
  6. Leave overnight or place in a pre warmed oven to speed up the process. Once dry, paint in the heart shaped fingerprints or let the kids paint as they want!
  7. Finally, put a string/rope/ribbon through the hole so you can hang it on your tree.

Idea • Mr Wolf

Choose one person to be the wolf and have them stand opposite everyone else, facing away. The others stand at the opposite end of the room as the wolf and ask the wolf what time it is. Whatever number the wolf says, the others must take that many steps. Repeat this until the wolf says "lunch time". Then the wolf will chase the others back to where they started.

BIBLE LESSON:

For the Advent season we will just have one story for both Preschool and Elementary kids. We hope you enjoy it! We had lots of fun creating it for you.

Ideas to serve in our community

Over the next few weeks, we will want to be both proactive and creative in how we maintain our community while still being wise about our health. There are many people within our body of believers here at CRBC and many more in our community who may find it difficult to get the supplies they need, day in and day out.

We would like to help facilitate during this time and we ask that you call into or email the CRBC office and provide us your name and number if:

  • For a health-related reason, you are unable to leave your residence to go shopping or get the resources that your family needs      
    • Or
  • You are healthy and able to go shopping/run errands for someone in need
