This Week At CSBC May 9-May 15

Happy Mother’s Day!

President Abraham Lincoln said, “I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.” Every child needs someone to pray for them. Every child with a loving, praying mom is rich in what matters most. Tomorrow we will honor the ladies of CSBC with a gift to say thank you for what you mean to your children, your church and your Lord. We are thankful for the way you love and serve others. You make a difference in the lives of those around you.

Chapel Remodel Underway-Volunteers

We are well into the remodeling of our chapel, and these next three weeks are crucial to our timeline of completion by June 1. If you are willing to help for a day, a morning, afternoon or evening, we can use your help! See Andy Young at church or contact the church office. Thanks in advance for your help!

Family Service Sunday Night

Our Sunday evening Family Service is the time each week that the whole family can sit together, worship together, and hear the Word of God together. Sunday night we continue our series on the Fruits of the Spirit to encourage and equip us to live our lives with the reality of God’s presence. For fun, we have given it a baseball theme. These Family Services include videos, games and activities for kids and adults. Don’t miss a week!

Wednesday Next Steps Begin Next Month

Beginning Wednesday night, June 2, we will launch Next Steps, a new format for our Wednesday evening services. Every believer needs to be equipped to walk with the Lord and serve the Lord in every stage of their life. Over the next few weeks we will lay out for you the exciting opportunities we are planning to help you identify and take the next step in your walk with the Lord.
