Heritage Bible Church Plant

On June 5th, pastor John spoke about CBC’s founding 30 years ago. What began as a church plant by Heritage Bible Church became Community Bible Church in the Wren/Powdersville area. John shared about his experience transitioning from being a youth pastor to being a founding pastor of a new church plant.

CBC owes a great deal to Heritage Bible Church, who bought the land our church was built on and had the vision to see the gospel shared in our area!

A Different Kind of Church

On June 19th, we heard from CBC owners Tom & Geri Randall and Mike & Heidi Matthews, who came to Community Bible Church very early in our history. The Randalls and Matthews shared their stories of coming to CBC from legalistic backgrounds, and how much this church has been a part of their growth process.

From the beginning, Community Bible Church focused on the core truths of the gospel of Christ and gained a reputation as “a healing church.” Praise God for stories of growth and healing!

God’s Blessing of Building

On June 26th, Sid & Dianne Hagen shared about the various building projects over Community Bible Church’s 30 years. From the beginning, God has blessed our church with both the need and the resources to build and expand our church facilities to better serve the body. Sid & Dianne walked us through the different phases of building -which continues even now- and some of the people and logistics that made those dreams reality.

Praise God for providing us with the space to gather!

Church Planting in Russia

On July 3rd, pastor John shared memories and photos of the service trips to Russia in the early days of Community Bible Church. CBC had the opportunity to be very influential in a revolutionary church building strategy in eastern Russia, allowing church buildings to be completed in months instead of years! Volunteers from CBC led multiple trips over several years, and we praise God that the church building work has continued in Russia!

We have been blessed with these opportunities to “Be Jesus” both locally and abroad!


On July 10th, we heard from Stephanie Carroll about Community Bible Church’s involvement with ABRO – the American Belarussian Relief Organization. In 2005 several CBC families committed to showing the love of Jesus to a group of Belarussian children, hosting them for 6 weeks of the summer. This led to a 6-year participation in serving these children in need.

What a privilege to be able to open our arms and homes to showcase the love of God to the least of these! Thank you to all the families who gave their time, energy, and resources to serving these kids!

Community Bible Church will be celebrating our 30th anniversary the weekend of August 27 & 28, 2022.  Starting in June, on Sunday mornings we want to share stories about our history and how God has used CBC over the past thirty years.  Would you make a short video sharing a favorite CBC memory and how God used it in your life? Also, if you have pictures from CBC’s history, we would love for you to share those with us as well.

You can upload your videos and pictures to the drop box below.  Thank you so much for your willingness to help us make this celebration memorable as we reflect on all that God has done in our lives.
