VBS Reimagined

What do you do when you can't gather in your church for a week full of fun, Biblical, energetic VBS excitement?  You reimagine what VBS could look like.  Instead of coming into the church, let's do things outside.  Instead of dropping kids off and having others lead them around, let's stay in our family units.  


But don't worry...there is still plenty of fun and excitement planned for you!  We hope that you will be able to join us for the scavenger-hunt-style VBS Express.  Click here to read all of the details, and to find the link to register online.  


*Important Note*  This is event is by ONLINE REGISTRATION only.  Must be registered by Sat. Aug. 15th.  Sorry, NO DAY-OF REGISTRATION!

Picnic at the Van Beeks August 16th (This Sunday after church)

We are excited to offer an outdoor activity for you and your family where you can social distance, enjoy good food, and even better company.  This coming Sunday (August 16th) everyone has been invited to head out to the Van Beek's place for a Bake Potato feed and fellowship.  The Van Beeks have plenty of property to keep people at required distances while allowing for much needed connection.  We hope you and your family will consider joining us. 


Please let the Van Beeks know that you are planning on coming.  If you need their contact information you can email pastor Matt or call the church office.  

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.  


Face Coverings - update

As of July 24th, Oregon's governing authorities are now requiring that face-coverings be worn

while sharing indoor public spaces.

Unfortunately, this includes your Church building on Sunday mornings.

There are exemptions to this requirement that may apply to you or someone you know.  

The graphic shown below represents one of the signs posted in the Church building.  

Please read these signs for details.  

By being responsible to do what is honorable, we can serve each other in love.

Thank you for your patience and grace as we walk through this time together!  

Our 4th Summer Walkabout is Sunday,

August 9th !


Please arrange your own transportation but  PLAN to 'caravan' with others, as we hike the trails around Gnat Creek!.   Since the parking lot at the fish hatchery is presently closed, we plan to park at Gnat Creek Campground and hike the trail up to the Barrier Falls.

We will leave from the Church parking lot SUNDAY AFTERNOON

at 12:30pm !

If you are interested in a map of the part of the trail we will be hiking  around Gnat Creek and the Fish Hatchery, please CLICK HERE.


Wear hiking boots OR sturdy shoes that you don't mind getting a little muddy!  Sunday's afternoon weather is forecast to be around 80 deg. and mostly sunny.   The tree shaded trail should remain pleasant so dress to stay cool and comfortable.

Eat some lunch first, but pack a snack, along with plenty of water, and you'll be ready to go.


Not counting the Gnat CreekCamp hike, there is one remaining  "Walkabout" scheduled for this Summer - and please note that the final 'Walkabout' (August 22/23) will take a minimum of

6 hours.  We plan to make it a dual activity day with your choice of hiking and/or bicycling!
