On Mission to Welcome the World at Our Doorstep

This year we are anticipating having more than 500 guests from 25-30 countries – from China, Japan, Korea, the Middle East, France, Italy, Mexico – all coming together to give thanks, to build relationships, to hear about the Greatest Relationship, to enjoy good food and fun together. This is a time for families to come together in celebration!

On Mission to Be a Family

On Mission to Be a Family

The folks at CHBC have a desire to help fill out your college experience. Because CHBC is inter-generational in nature, our church family enjoys worshiping, fellowshipping, praying, and playing together. For several years now we have had a Shepherding Family program to allow for college students to spend time away from school for a few hours and to become a part of family life in one of the CHBC families.

Bill and Ruth Wismer met each other in Cypress. Bill was in the Navy and stationed in Cypress; Ruth was living with her parents in Cypress at the time. They met at church, which was to become their home church after their marriage. That church also provided the foundation for their life of hospitality together.

Kanye or Nay?

Kanye or Nay?

Over the last 14 years, Kanye West has ebbed and flowed from an appetite for the Lord and for the world. But now, after all the seemingly incomplete attempts to reach for God in his music, it appears that a humbled, freshly motivated follower of Jesus has surfaced and the content is the most explicit yet –– explicitly God. Is Kanye really saved? Will this really last?

A Call to Sing in Life Groups

A Call to Sing in Life Groups

As we go through the Psalms, I can’t help but think about the impact that this book has had in my life. Capturing every range of the human experience, the Psalms are more than an intellectual exercise but a powerful emotional adoration of God.

4 Ways We Can Better Love College Students at Church

4 Ways We Can Better Love College Students at Church

Each Sunday morning, the halls of Bible Church fill with a beautiful picture of the Gospel. That is, we are a fellowship made up of every generation and stage of life. Part of that beautiful picture is those who are in their college years, walking through both an exciting and crucial stage of life. As we gather alongside these students each Sunday, I would like to offer four ways that we can better love the college students who call CHBC home.

Resources for Thinking Through a Biblical Vision of Just War

Resources for Thinking Through a Biblical Vision of Just War

In my sermon for our Hot Topics series, I tried to provide a balanced and biblical vision for just war. I pulled from a lot of resources to prepare for that sermon—many more than the two books that a few lucky members received that morning—and I’d like to provide those resources here at the CHBC blog for anyone who wants to dig deeper.

Hospitality for Every Season of Life

Hospitality for Every Season of Life

I have just started to enter into the beginning stages of longing for the transition into Fall –– you know, for the cooler weather, the changing of the colors, the smell of burning wood –– it is my favorite time of the year. But I don’t want to skip out on the remainder of summer because there is something about this season that creates an environment to invite people into fellowship. That is why you have heard many of us on the blog emphasizing the theme of hospitality.

What Does It Look Like to Love ALL People?

What Does It Look Like to Love ALL People?

As we strive to be a body of believers that follows Christ we often know that means to love others. But pause for a moment and think to yourself, how would I show love to someone walking through the doors of the church for the first time? Have an idea in mind? Now, what if that person walking through the doors had special needs?

From Lament to Leaning on God

From Lament to Leaning on God

I’d like to introduce you to a girl named Self, “myself” to be more specific. For so many years, Self has fought to put into words what she felt, the suffering she’s faced and the agony of shame that has weighed her down. You know how Pastor Jay refers to our “backpacks?” Well, Self’s backpack is loaded with bricks that have caused much heartache.

Be “Swirly” to the Nations Around You

Be “Swirly” to the Nations Around You

Walking up the stairs to the children’s classroom, JR, Xander, and I talk about the kiddos they’d meet, how those boys and girls may or may not know English yet, but how they could still enjoy playing together. We also discuss what the apartment might look like. Would it be like our home, would it be messy? How would it be decorated? I want my boys to understand that even though their surroundings may not be what we are accustomed to or expect, we can still enjoy our time with those who may be behind that door. We can practice being “swirly.”

A Recipe for “Food for Thought”

I asked Mark Hampton if he were going to include any recipes in his “Food for Thought” series in our Bespoken podcast. When he said no, he wasn’t planning to, I thought I REALLY MUST. So, as a light-hearted contribution to the topic, I submit the following recipe for a classic salad.

I would like to invite you into the world of one of my friends and share her story with you.

This story starts with a mama and her two little daughters, living in Michoacan, Mexico.

The Value of Hearty Discussion

The best Boards all come together with a united purpose to move the action steps along. Our goal of promoting the mission of the church through the work of service is best accomplished when we all discuss with vigor and then fully support the resulting decision.

Bridging Generations with the Gospel at UNC

As we kickoff our year of celebration for 50 years of ministry, a common story we often hear is the mutual connection parents have with their college-aged children attending UNC and discovering a thriving Christian community at the Bible Church. Here’s Nicole Wesche and her father, Ken, sharing their bond with CHBC.

The Road Less Traveled

This story of one-on-one discipleship is truly powerful by these three college students, but rarely duplicated in our day. Sometimes, it’s as simple as a question to a friend of “How can I pray for you?” or asking someone to read the Bible every week and talk about it. Listen to how the Spirit of God worked through these friends to discover salvation through Jesus and ultimately change their life trajectories forever.

For this, the final post from this blog, the “we” is going to change to “I” – this last post is not written by the “building committee,” but from my own viewpoint, myself – Emily Williams. I’m doing this in order to express some personal observations and thoughts, and recognize some people from the project who have meant something to me, personally, as we have worked together. I hope you will stay in your seat all the way to the end of the credits for this movie!

Counting Down

Counting Down

It is just amazing to see all that has been happening this past week. The chapel ceiling and flooring and trim, the ceiling tiles in the chapel lobby and connector, flooring downstairs, classroom carpeting, a second (final) coat of paint in many areas … the place is being transformed. Many little things are being done, too, such as putting the faceplates on the light switches and outlets.

So thankful for CHBC! We love being a part of this community. We started attending and joined shortly after moving to Chapel Hill and getting married in 2016. The Lord has greatly used CHBC and our life group to grow our marriage and our individual walks with the Lord. So thankful for our family here!

I love Chapel Hill Bible Church! I found the church shortly after moving to Chapel Hill and quickly became a member, and never looked back. If you are looking for a church in the area that loves Jesus, the Word, and the Triangle, this is the place!

MY WIFE & I FOUND CHBC THROUGH A GOOGLE SEARCH AND AFTER ATTENDING REGULARLY FOR THE PAST SIX MONTHS WE HAVE FOUND OUR CHURCH HOME. THE PREACHING IS BIBLICAL, EXEGETICAL, AND GOSPEL-CENTRIC. ONE OF OUR FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT THE CHURCH IS THE INTERNATIONAL ASPECT, WITH SERVICES AND CLASSES HELD IN SPANISH AND MANDARIN.
