Pastor's Note - October 22

I was reminded once again that October is “Pastor Appreciation Month.” With that, I’d like to encourage you to appreciate our pastors here at CBC. At CBC, we have two staff pastors, Russ Friesen and myself. But we also have five additional non-staff pastors, normally referred to as elders. We believe that this office of pastor or elder is one and the same, according to the New Testament. Thus, our elders are pastors, and they do the work of shepherds here at CBC. Each of these men serve faithfully and sacrificially to care for our church, and I am thankful for them. And each of you at CBC has an elder assigned to you, who prays for you, leads your 242 Group, and will check in with you from time to time. As you can, I would encourage you to show your appreciation for them! And consider the words of Hebrews 13:7; “Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith.”
