You are helpers, not teachers. • Exceptions: women who are physically unable to serve.

Contributions • The mission of Community Bible Study is to make disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ in our communities through caring, in-depth Bible study, available to all. • The ministries of CBS include programs serving adults, children, students, prison inmates, and special needs individuals; our curriculum is available in the languages of class members on every continent around the globe.CBS ministry is supported through your contributions. • Class registration fees provide less than one quarter of the financial resources needed to operate the ministry. Each individual class, as well as the ministry as a whole, is financially supported through the generous contributions of class members and alumni. Your additional tax deductible gift will help us to continue to bring the Word of God to communities across the United States and around the world.
Contributions continued: • A recent change: The IRS now allows any giving over the $25 registration fee to be tax deductible. • To take advantage of the tax deduction, please place your donations to Community Bible Study (check or cash) in one of CBS’ contribution envelopes filled out with your information on the front. CBS will send you a receipt for your donation. • 2 envelopes will be passed each week– one for the CBS ministry and one to support our children’s ministry. Please give as you feel led.
Guidelines: • Commitment: please make attendance a priority! • Out of consideration for others: • Please turn off your cell phone or put it on vibrate. • We refrain from discussion of denominations, individual churches, pastors, TV personalities & programs and POLITICS in our core groups. • We ask that there be no distribution of tracts, books, flyers or advertisements and that there be no group solicitations of our members for promoting or selling products.
Guidelines continued: • Please don’t forward emails. • No perfume – because we have a few ladies with severe allergies. • We refrain from gift giving to each other, but notes and cards of appreciation are always welcome! Serving in the Butterfly club is a wonderful gift to the leaders who serve you! • Lisa and I will be visiting your Core Groups from time to time to give us a chance to get to know you better.
