Welcome To CSBC On Sunday, August 15, 2021

Whether you join us in person or online, we are thankful you are part of what the Lord is doing at Cherry Street Baptist Church on this Lord’s day

Family Emphasis With Pastor Matthew Trill

We are blessed to have Pastor Matthew Trill along with his dear wife, Maribeth with us for this special day. Matt has served as the Senior Pastor of New Testament Baptist Church in Largo, Florida for more than 21 years. They are dear friends to our church! Show them a warm CSBC welcome.

“Back To School Day” Next Sunday, August 22

Our young people are starting back to school in the coming days and we want to encourage them as they go. Next Sunday all the students in attendance will receive gifts to remind them to shine for Jesus as they head back to school. Please pray for our kids, their parents and teachers as they start a new school year.

“Back To School Celebration” Friday August 27

This night of fun for kids and teens will include pizza, games and activities, and even pony rides and a petting zoo! There is no cost for the event, but registration is required by texting “fun” to our church number, 417.889.1999.

Faith@Home Ministry Launches Sunday, August 29

We are excited about the launch of our Faith@Home ministry, which has the potential to impact every home, whether it is the home of a single person or single parent; married couple or family with kids; empty nesters or grandparents. The purpose of this ministry is to inspire every person in every home to strengthen their own personal faith in Christ by intentionally by providing free, one step at a time tools for every season of life. Our Faith@Home Center will also make additional resources available as well.

Stronger & Safer Together

Help us keep everyone as safe as possible. We ask everyone who has a fever, other symptoms or exposure to Covid-19 to watch the services on the live-stream until they are better or their quarantine time has passed. Other measures that we can do together:

Please consider an alternative to shaking hands.

If you need to wear masks to do so.

Please be aware of distancing during fellowship times before and after services.

Help us keep our fellowship in the auditorium or outside the building instead of our narrow hallways.

Ask the Lord to help those who are impacted by Covid-19.

Wednesday Next Steps

Wednesday Next Steps classes help every believer to CONNECT to the Lord and this church; GROW in their walk with the Lord; and SERVE the Lord in every stage of their Christian life. There are three classes available: First Step; Second Step; and the Next Step class.There is also a Next Step Choir rehearsal where the choir will meet, and also have the opportunity to grow through the Next Step teaching. Take the Next Steps in your Christian life this Wednesday evening at 6:30. Wednesday nights are special for kids, too! This summer’s Board Games theme is a hit with the children!

Prime Timers Meet This Tuesday August 17

If you are a senior adult, make your plans to join the PrimeTimers on Tuesday, August 17 at 10:30 a.m.

Chapel Chair Project

The chapel remodel budget didn’t include funds to purchase new seating. Some have asked about new chairs and even offered to help purchase them. In fact, we have been offered a matching gift to help purchase the chairs. This is how it works:

The chairs cost $70 – so if you give $70 to buy one chair, it’s actually buying 2 chairs!

We need 150 chairs for capacity in the chapel, so 75 people willing to give to buy 1 chair would cover all 150.

Production time is into the late fall. That allows August and September to receive the gifts. So $10 a week for seven weeks, or $35 this month and again next month would be great. If you desire to help, whatever would work for you will be just fine!

Using Realm online or envelope to give? Simply choose “other” and put “Chairs” in the memo line.
