How You Can Continue To Give.

We have tried to make things as simple as possible so you can continue to support CBC with little interruption.  Here are a few suggestions on how you can do just that.

  • Use our ONLINE GIVING option.  Just sign up (or not if you'd like to do a one time gift).  It's quick and easy and something you can do from the comfort of your home.
  • Use the mail.  Feel free to mail us at:    P.O. Box 613, Clatskanie OR, 97016.  
  • Or drop it off at the church office.  Obviously, this option is predicated on "social distancing" regulations and pastoral staff being in the office. 
  • Please call the office @ 503-728-2304 to make sure someone will be there to answer the door.  

Update On Re-Opening Church in Oregon...

Many have been asking the question - "when can we meet with each other again and enjoy Sunday worship together?"

Here is our latest update  (May 20th) ~

Clatskanie Baptist Church is part of Columbia County, which has recently entered "Phase 1" of the Three Phase plan outlined by our state government.   Detailed information can be found here.  

Phase 1 allows for local gatherings to take place but limits their size to 25 people while enforcing social/physical distancing rules of staying 6 feet apart and wearing face coverings while indoors. 

With these limitations in mind, CBC leadership recently met to consider how to address these requirements while providing worship accommodations for all members and attenders  - whether within the building or apart due to health concerns.

Basic math reminds all of us that as yet, CBC cannot return to our previous schedule of worship and still provide access to everyone. 

Providing multiple services on a Sunday presents other challenges and logistical concerns (such as crowding of lobbies, frequency of cleaning for common points of contact,  limitations for recording or streaming live services, etc.) that are difficult to overcome. 

While committed to finding creative answers to these limitations and challenges, CBC Leadership has determined that our present online format will continue - since it is the option we can sustain under present health guidelines.

CBC Leadership is aware of legal issues presently being considered by the Oregon Supreme Court and we hope for a timely decision.

We ask that you please continue to pray for the Lord's will to be accomplished - in both the rulings of men and the attitudes of our own hearts - so that the body of Christ can return to being together as we worship Him in spirit and in truth!   

Bible Project Weekly Church

This week’s video and readings focus on the biblical theme of the Image of God. We’ll consider the portrayal of humans in the Bible as both weak and vulnerable but also capable and called to rule the world on God’s behalf.

Keep In Touch

During this time of "social distancing" it can be easy to disconnect from those around us and even your church family.  As much as we are making the effort for this to NOT happen, we recognize that it may appear that ways to a few of you.  If you could reach out to us and let us know how we can connect with you, that would be fantastic!  

You can reach out to either of the pastors via email or call the church office (although without a secretary we often miss phone calls)  and please, leave a message.

We'll return your call as soon as possible.

Contact Senior Pastor Kirk Bennett

Contact Associate Pastor Matt Hadley
