On Mission to Love Each Other Well

On Mission to Love Each Other Well

How does anyone know that we have love and unselfish concern for one another? What does love look like? Our church has, on average, about 1000-1100 adults in attendance on Sunday mornings. With such a large congregation, we face particular challenges in even knowing one another, much less loving each other well. We are doing some things to organize in such a way that, first of all, we can get to know one another.

On Mission to Become a Non-Anxious Person

There’s a lot being said these days about technology! I think it’s on almost everyone’s mind. Can screen time damage my young children? What is technology doing to our family life? What is it doing to me? How do I limit the use of technology? Why can’t I put down my phone?

On Mission to Welcome Well

On Mission to Welcome Well

“Sorry to cut you off!” I’d just started connecting with a close friend at church. I was eager to catch up. But as she talked, I noticed a woman sitting alone, thumbing through her service sheet. Honestly, I wished I hadn’t seen her. Interrupting my friend would be rude. It’s good for me to invest in friends! Someone else will likely spot that woman. These were some of the excuses that ran through my head. But the woman was clearly new, and for all I knew, not a believer. So, reluctantly, I interrupted my friend.

On Mission to Practice Hospitality

On Mission to Practice Hospitality

I had to laugh as I interviewed my friend Pat Portman about her hospitality lifestyle and experiences. You see, God has given Pat a heart for women and a deep love for building community; but Pat doesn’t enjoy cooking or cleaning up to have people in her home. Therefore, Pat is always “practicing hospitality.” She knows that God plans for His people to be givers, so she has no problem continuing to give out of her heart even though she does not feel that she has “the gift of hospitality.” She just loves people.

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.

Disciplines of a Godly Man

Disciplines of a Godly Man

The first time I met Kent Hughes was several years ago in a loud burger pub in Indianapolis during the Gospel Coalition conference. Although at times it was hard to hear Kent over the rumbling of hundreds of other pastors crowded in for a quick dinner before the evening plenary session –– not an ideal setting to get to know someone –– thankfully, his voice was not too unfamiliar.

The Sufficiency of Scripture

The Sufficiency of Scripture

People talk about the Bible’s truthfulness and claim over our lives, but sometimes they forget to claim and prove that the Bible is also sufficient to teach and define all of life, even things like complex social, scientific, and psychological realities known to us in our modern age.

My Week As a Monk

My Week As a Monk

Yes, you did read that title correctly, I actually did spend a week as a monk. This last week, I traveled down to Belmont Abbey and stayed with the monks at the monastery on the campus of the college. Here’s a couple things I learned through the experience.

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”

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.

No Longer Foreigners, But Fellow Citizens

I would like to invite you into the world of one of my friends and share her story with you. Please, would you get yourself a warm cup of tea, a fuzzy blanket, and sit down in the most comfy of chairs, because this story is not going to be an easy one. This story starts with a mama and her two little daughters, living in Michoacan, Mexico.

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.

Roll Credits

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.
