Happy Thanksgiving!

Have you ever considered Jesus and "thankfulness?"

Of course, Jesus wants us to be thankful - but what about the idea that Jesus Himself is thankful?

What would this be about and how might it affect us who believe?

CLICK on the photo below to listen to a brief word from Pastor Kirk that we hope will be an encouragement to your faith journey

in this holiday season.

We Are Now Live Streaming Our Sunday Service!

That's right!  We are now live streaming our service weekly.  We hope this will be a helpful resource for you and your family.  Of course we continue to meet live and in person and would love to see you there, but we understand that not everyone can make it back quite yet.  


Each week you will be able to tune in at 10:15am and watch us live.  Here are a few ways you can do that.


1.  Click the link to the Clatskanie Baptist Church YouTube channel.

2.  If you're on Facebook we will provide a link on our CBC facebook page that will take you directly to the live stream video.


Finally, we will continue to provide the audio of just the sermon right here if you'd rather just listen to it.  We hope this provides as many options as possible for you to be a part of our Sunday morning service. 


Also, Click on the picture and you can begin watching this last week's service.  Or just Click Here!

CBC Giving Tree 2020

Our Giving Tree has gone virtual this year.  If you didn't already know, during the Christmas season our church provides gifts for families in need within the great Clatskanie area.  Normally we have gift tags that are hung on a Christmas tree in the church foyer, but this year we're doing it all online.


So, what does that look like?  Well, I'm glad you asked.  We have created a registration page where you can go and sign up virtually for one or more of those "gift tags."  


Follow the link below or click on the picture and you will be sent to the Giving Tree registration page.  Once you are there you can register for one gift, a couple gifts, just a financial gift, or a combination of any of those options.  


Once you have chosen your items click submit and you will be sent a receipt with the item/items you signed up to purchase.  


All purchased gifts must be dropped off at the church by December 19th.


If you have any questions please email Kara Harris.


Click Here to sign up for a gift or to give financially.  

Regarding New Covid Restrictions

11-18-20


Pastor Matt here.  As many of you know there have been new mandates set forth for the state of Oregon this week (you can read them HERE).  According to new guidelines we are able to still have 25 people, social distanced and wearing masks, in our sanctuary.  Furthermore, we are also allowed a second area of 25 people provided they have their own entrance and exit separate from those using the sanctuary.


So what does that mean for this Sunday (November 22nd)?  Well, we are confident that whether you are in the sanctuary or in our overflow area we can physically accommodate everyone who has been showing up with extra seats to spare.  However, we will have to cap capacity in our main sanctuary at 25. 


Also, we will continue our live streaming of the worship service at 10:15 on our YouTube channel which can be found by clicking HERE! (Or go wherever you can access YouTube just search Clatskanie Baptist Church and you'll find us easily.)


We understand the wide ranging views and feelings surrounding these guidelines and the overall fatigue of all that's going on in the world around us.  We continue to seek God in prayer and through his word for wisdom in these matters and we humbly ask that you would join us in doing the same.  God is still on His throne and we can certainly put our faith and trust in His plan and purposes.  


With much love,


The Leadership at CBC  

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.

Refuge 

Is Meeting LIVE

Refuge is what we call our church youth group that includes 7th -12th grades.  We are slowly making our way back after taking a sizable break at the end of last school year (due to the pandemic) and on through the summer.


We are happy to announce that Refuge is back to meeting live* and in person.  However, we are currently meeting only once a month.  Below are the next couple of Refuge dates.


September 20th -- 6pm to 7:30pm

October 18th -- 6pm to 7:30pm


*We are adhering to all local, state, and federal guidelines pertaining to meeting safely and in person.  We have social distancing protocols in place and encourage every student that can to wear a mask.
