Music

The music sung at CBC is a blend of old and new. We love the theologically rich hymns from past centuries as well as from modern-day writers. The singing is intentionally congregational – highlighting the fact that we are gathered together to sing with one voice.

Sermons

Preaching at CBC is typically expositional, which means we seek to understand, explain, and apply the main point of a particular passage of Scripture. The sermons are usually 30-45 minutes in length. All of our preaching is centered on the gospel of Jesus Christ, the good news of God’s redemptive plan that is unfolded throughout all of Scripture.
