Special December Series: What’s In the Box?
Today’s Message: “Do You Understand?”
Scripture: Matthew 13:51-53
WELCOME to Cleburne Bible Church. If you haven’t made a decision to trust Christ as your personal Savior, our hope and prayer for you is that you will make that decision. “And this is the testimony, that God has given us eternal life and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.” (1 John 5:11-12)

A VERY BIG THANK YOU, Cleburne Bible Church family, for being SO GENEROUS AND LOVING this year with your time, money and gifts given at our God’s Thanksgiving, Operation Christmas Child, and Angel Tree gifts to the children of Johnson County, including Prison Fellowship Ministries and East Cleburne Community Center as well as some local children. Many lives have been touched by your mercy, love and generosity to the glory of Jesus Christ. God bless you as you continue to worship Him this Christmas and into the New Year.
Thank you Freddia Gray and CBC Missions Team for hosting a shower here for Travis & Charissa who are in North Africa! And thank you to all who prayed for their baby to turn from breach, and who gave to them so generously, including one unsigned card. Your gifts are helping them at a time that their support has dropped due to the flooding in the Beaumont area where Travis is from, and they are very grateful. You’ll be hearing from them personally, but we, as “Boss” & “Chula,” are very touched by your outpouring of love for our grandbaby and his parents.
Dean & Wendy
