No one had any idea what God would do when one CBS Teaching Director invited one Spanish-speaking woman to a CBS class 18 years ago. That one Hispanic woman, Rodelizabeth Huerta Laxson, went to be with Jesus in June this year. But she left behind a thriving Spanish-speaking CBS class, including many people who came to know Jesus personally through the influence of that class.
Imagine a whole church involved in a CBS-style Bible study. Everybody does home study questions every day. Everybody discusses the week’s passage in a small group. And then everybody hears the pastor preach from that same passage Sunday morning. Sound too good to be true? It’s not! That very thing is actually happening at Grace Chapel in Skaneateles, New York.
Stella and Lillie (4 and 2½) love attending the CBS Children’s Ministry in San Juan Capistrano (CA). So much so that their mother, Noelle Dera, shared, “Throughout the day I often find them playing ‘CBS’ similar to ‘house.’ My girls will drop their dolls off into their CBS classrooms and recite their Bible verse song and perform [other] songs they learn in class.” Much of the girls’ enthusiasm for CBS is sparked by the children’s leaders.
