WHAT? 21-Plus Resources CMBA Offers Your Congregation as You ReLaunch – The First Seven.

DETAILS? As congregations ReLaunch/ReOpen it is a great time to evaluate how you have been doing church and to address areas of potential innovation for your congregation. CMBA staff, consultants, and partners will share the first seven of more than 21 resources available to you. These resources are divided into two categories: Resources that Empower Vision and Strategies and Resources that Empower Means and Management.

These Church Leaders Online Gatherings are a regular weekly ministry of CMBA during the current season.

A Prayer for the Ninth Week of Virtual Church

O Lord our God, this is the ninth week. In how we measure our lives this is not a long time. Yet is has seemed long for many of us in a culture where we have come to expect immediate gratification of our needs and desires. We must realize that in how we measure our eternal life with You that even the second hand on a clock has not moved forward. We just do not understand the timeless nature of eternal life. Through worship of You we get a glimpse of the joy that will be present.

A New Way to Financially Contribute to CMBA

There is a new way to make congregation or individual contributions to the Columbia Metro Baptist Association. In cooperation with the Baptist Foundation of South Carolina and LifeWay Christian Resources donors can go to https://columbiametro.org/donate/. Contributions can be made by eCheck, Debit Card, or Credit Card. eCheck is the cheapest, and costs less than the cost of a stamp. The regular and generous contributions from our congregations and individuals makes possible our ministry with almost 100 congregations, and missional efforts in the Midlands of South Carolina.

Our One Priority Briefing and the Our One Priority Briefing Online Gathering are made possible by the financial gifts of the member and network congregations of the Columbia Metro Baptist Association at www.ColumbiaMetro.org, CMBA@ColumbiaMetro.org, or 803.619.7110. To donate go to https://columbiametro.org/donate/. Gifts can be made to the general fund, to hunger ministry, or to disaster response.
