Shabbat
@ Every Saturday
We observe Shabbat each Saturday. On this day we are expected to rest from our normal work. So we relax, we worship God, we study His ways, and we fellowship with our CBS family.

Rosh Chodesh

@ New Moon
The New Moon observance is a simple service of blowing the Shofar and offering special sacrifices. On the first Shabbat after the new moon, our Shabbat focuses on Joy.

Pesach

@ March/April
The Passover seder is one of the biggest events of the year. During this seder, we recount the story of the Exodus, and at the same time we recognize the symbolism in each of the traditions pointing us to Yeshua our Messiah. The ultimate Pesach Lamb.

Unleavened Bread
@ Starts at Sundown after the Pesach meal
Pesach and Unleavened Bread are connected. During these 7 days we eat no leavened bread. We purge the yeast (chametz) from our houses. Yeshua’s blood cleansed us from sin.

First Fruits

@ Starts on the day after the Sabbath after Passover
First Fruits is one of the most significant days on God’s Calendar. It is the day that Yeshua conquered death. He came out of the tomb on this day. This resurrection gives us the power to defeat the sin in our lives, turn to God, love him, and do what he says.

Omer Counting

@ Starts on First Fruits
God has us counting the days between First Fruits and Shavuot. So, we count the days, in eager expectation of what is coming.

Shavuot

@ 7 Weeks after Passover
Something really cool happened on this day 2000 years ago. This is a day that the Ruach HaKodesh was poured out on the disciples. Crack open that Bible to Acts 2. Pretty Cool. We like to have an immersion service, and worship. 

Fall Feasts

Yom Teruah/Rosh HaShanah

@ September
The first of the Fall Feasts, Yom Teruah or Day of Trumpets is celebrated by blowing the Shofars and bring an offering. This day is prophetic of Yeshua’s return, “as the last trumpet will sound”

Yom Kippur

@ 10 days after Yom Teruah
Also know as the Day of Atonement, this is a serious day, a day of fasting. It is on this day that our High Priest Yeshua atones for our sins with his own blood. It is known as the day that our sins are forgiven for those whose name is written in the Book of Life.

Sukkot

@ 4 days after Yom Kippur
The celebration of Sukkot or Booths is a 7 day feast where we gather in the Sukkah and eat, study, fellowship, play, and worship. This is an exciting time where God is back with his people. 

Winter Feasts

Purim

@ February
In the Book of Esther, we learn about how God worked through politics, governments, and kings to bring about the salvation of Israel when old enemies tried to destroy them. Today we celebrate this victory by reading the Megillah and dress up as our favorite characters.  

Hanukkah

@ December
Not included in the cannon of scripture, only found when Yeshua went up to celebrate the feast of dedication in John 10, this holiday celebrates the miracle of how a small band of Jewish rebels defeated an empire. Today we celebrate by rededicating our “Temples” to God and enjoying anything fried.
