  • Cari Staley

    Since Cari began working with our children we have had the privilege to see kids come to Christ, be baptized and begin to follow God on a life-long journey. She has restarted our AWANA program, held VBS and is training up a great team of adult leaders to disciple our children up into adulthood.

  • mel wisely

    Mel is another recent addition to CBC! She ensures that the running and administration of the church is well taken care of, as well as anything else that needs a careful touch.

our mission

In everything we do, from running the day-to-day of the church, to preparing lessons and equipping volunteers, we have one central focus in mind: to preach the Gospel and to make disciples. 

We do that by ensuring that every person we come in contact with knows that Christ died for their sins and rose from the dead, and by being intentional about our relationships with those around us, always speaking Christ into their lives.
