									CBC Link – February 18

                             Jeff Johnson Band Coming to Sunday Morning and Concert of Worship
                             Sunday, March 7, 2010 CBC will host a very special guest. Jeff Johnson is a
                             gifted musician, performer, writer and former American Idol contestant. He
                             appeals to all age groups leading worship with his dynamic style and passion
                             for music. He travels across the country touring with his band and leading
                             Christian camps and conferences. His compelling voice and musical gifts are
                             a blessing.

                             Please join us as Jeff leads us at both worship services on March 7 at
9:30am and 11:00am. Then make plans to be at CBC for a dynamic Concert of Worship that night at
6:00pm. Invite your friends to join you. We look forward to all that God will do through Jeff’s exciting
ministry of music on March 7.

Global Outreach
Haiti Response—On April 22-24 New Directions International (a CBC-supported ministry) will be hosting
a food-packing event at their offices in Graham. This is a ―mission trip‖ for people who are not able to
travel overseas and for those who are but have a great desire to serve God in caring for others in need.
Over this 3-day event, volunteers will package over 270,000 servings of nutritious vitamin-fortified rice
meals which will be shipped to Haiti in a container. Our church family will have the opportunity to pack
4,000 servings during a two-hour packing session (which is 268 servings per volunteer).

CBC has signed up for a two-hour time slot on Saturday, April 24 at 2:00 PM, and we need 15-20
volunteers. This can include families with children 3 grade and up. We also ask that our volunteers
make a contribution of $50-100 per person or per family to help fund these meals. Where else could you
go on a ―mission trip‖ for that price?!
