Prayer Meeting

Prayer Meeting is held Wednesday nights during the school year from 6:45-8:15 PM. We have a brief devotional, then break into smaller groups to pray for requests that have come into the church over the past week.

 

Home Groups

Home Groups offer a time of smaller group interaction, Bible study, fellowship, prayer time, connection, friendship-building, and accountability. For more information about this ministry, contact Pastor Jim Davis.

 

50+ Club for Senior Adults

This group of seniors and almost-seniors functions in a number of ways. Fellowship and serving are two key ingredients, but there are many fun times and adventures as well. For more information about 50+ Club, contact Pastor Tom Hubbard.

 

Friends Ministry

CMBC has a lot of compassion for those who, for one reason or another, cannot get to church. This is a ministry of visitation that happens on a weekly basis. Those on our visitation team travel to nursing/retirement homes and/or personal homes to visit, share Scripture, pray, and serve Communion. Also, there are phone calls and e-mails to individuals making sure they are being cared for and looked after in their health situations. The church office also makes various mailings of the Weekly and church or missions news.

 

Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministers are members of our congregation who have received 50 hours of caregiving training to minister to people experiencing a crisis, facing a challenge, or simply going through a tough time. We are always open to new caregivers or care receivers. If you would like more information about becoming a Stephen Minister or about having a Stephen Minister meet with you, contact Emmajane Denlinger.


BASIS Grief Support Group

BASIS (Brothers And Sisters In Support) is a ministry under the leadership of Handi*Vangelism that exists to encourage parents on their grief journey, immediately and long term. We use biblical truth as the foundation for the support we offer. At monthly meetings, no one is required to speak, but everyone may share feelings openly and honestly without fear of judgement or criticism. CMBC’s BASIS group meets on the first Monday of each month at 7:00 PM at a home in Paradise. Contact the church office (717-442-8161) for more information.

 

Women’s Ministry

Women’s Bible Study is offered in the Spring and Fall and other events are scheduled throughout the year. Contact Susan Hubbard for more information.

 

Men's Ministry

Men of Iron Strong27 Mentorship Program

The Strong27™ mentorship program equips churches to cultivate a men’s ministry focused on leadership and strength. It’s a 12-month journey of man-to-man mentorship and transformation. Both proteges and mentors grow in accountability, balance and spiritual growth. Men emerge courageous, disciplined and emboldened by the Holy Spirit to be the leaders they’re called to be. Visit the Men of Iron website (www.menofiron.org) or contact Pastor Jim Davis to learn more.

 

Men's Prayer Group

Each week, men gather at the church and pray on Saturday mornings, 7:00-8:00 AM. All men are welcome to attend.
