To General Members of the Chesapeake Bay Mission Center of Community of Christ:
We hope and pray that you are healthy and living abundantly and that the blessings of joyful living extend to your families as well. We are writing to you for several reasons:
To affirm your value to our faith community and to invite you to participate in ways that bring you joy as you share ministry of presence, stories of your journey with God, skill and giftedness, good news and concerns.
To share news of the ministries offered within Chesapeake Bay Mission Center (CBMC) that may be of value to you and your families
To inquire about ways we can support you
To gather communication information to help us stay connected
During the pandemic, we have been worshipping, learning and serving together primarily virtually. But as our local communities rebound, we are beginning to offer hybrid experiences- in-person and, at the same time, virtual so that all persons have access to participate in community. If you would like more information about connecting virtually, please follow this link: Connect Virtually
