Church Updates


Due to recent reports of CIBC members testing positive for COVID in recent weeks and days, CIBC will continue to enforce the requirement for masks to be worn at all times during the month of May, please see our full set of guidelines posted to the church website.


We remind you to continue wearing your mask and use sanitizer. PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND fellowships or services if you are experiencing any symptoms of sickness (sore throat, coughing, fever, etc).  We advise you to get tested and to quarantine.  If you do test positive for Covid, please inform the church office at (510) 452-1772 or contact Deacon Ken Wong at the church so we can begin contact tracing and inform anyone you came in contact with.


Save the date: The 2022 CIBC All Church Camp will be on the Memorial Day Weekend, 05/27 - 05/30, at Alliance Redwoods Conference Grounds. Our camp theme for this year is “Be strong and courageous”. Our theme is drawn from the book of Joshua, verse 1:9. Praise the Lord that 222 individuals have registered for All Church Camp so far. Please note that a limited number of rooms have just become available on a first come first serve basis. So please help the planning committee by registering now. This enables the committee to get the additional rooms before they are gone. The registration will be available this Sunday, in-person during English IBF time in the Social Hall, after the Cantonese service in Room 101 and after the Mandarin service in the Fellowship Hall. Online registration is also available at https://forms.gle/TbPc7x3soN7n7mV9A  or on the church website.


All Church Camp registers: Please sign up the online waiver for Family groups, Individual (including the Unaccompanied Minors) and Chaperones at https://tinyurl.com/14419CIBC  (Note: Standard=Lodge, Economy=Cabin), or check the church website for the link.
