Welcome to Cherry Street Baptist Church. We are thankful you have chosen to worship with us this holiday weekend. Memorial Day became an official federal holiday in 1971, and is a uniquely American holiday for honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. We want to thank the Lord for the liberties we enjoy – and remember those who paid the ultimate price to gain and preserve our freedoms, including the freedom we have to gather for worship today.Please let us know you are here by filling out our digital guest card.We pray that God will bless you today!
-Pastor Dennis Jennings
Ken Gillming Preaching Today
God used Dr. Kenneth Gillming (who along with his dear wife, Norma, are enjoying their heavenly home today) as the founding pastor of our church. We were blessed for years to have the ministry of Ken Gillming, who served on the staff with his dad for decades, then serving as our senior pastor until 2008. Humanly speaking, our church owes a great debt to the Gillming family! We are blessed today to have Ken & Shirley Gillming with us. Pastor Ken will be preaching for us this morning. Let’s welcome them back home!
Summer Camps and Camp Scholarships
The most impactful week of the year, spiritually speaking, for kids and teens is the week of camp. Just two weeks from tomorrow, our children entering 3rd grade to those leaving 5th grade will head to camp. Youth Camp will take place July 11-15 for young people heading into 6th grade to those just graduating from high school. Cost for kids camp is $165; for teens it’s $180. If you would like to provide a scholarship for kids or teens to go to camp, just add it to your regular giving and note the amount for “Camp Scholarship.” If you would like more information about camp, see Jason Lange or Kevin Adams about kids camp, Andy Young or Riley Berry about youth camp. Please pray for our kids and teens as they go to camp that God would do a great work in each of their lives.
Memorial Day Picnic This Afternoon
Instead of our Family Service this evening, we will gather at 4:30 this afternoon at Phelps Grove Park (just east of National on Bennett Street) for a picnic together. We won’t be combining our meals, so bring your own picnic dinner. We will provide drinks and desserts.
“Surf’s Up!” For Kids This Summer
Registration is open for our CSBC summer Wednesday night kids program called “Beati-dudes!” Beginning this Wednesday, June 1, our preschool children up through 5th graders will enjoy loads of fun, games and Bible lessons from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, all built around a beach theme.

Thank You For Your Faithful Giving
We want to encourage everyone to be faithful with their tithes and offerings.
You can give:
By using dropping your offering envelopes into the offering boxes in the back of the auditorium and on the walls in the lobby
Through the website at mycsbc.com
On the Realm Connect app
Through the mail – our offering envelopes are postage paid – meaning you can drop your offering in the mail without a stamp. If you would like us to send you envelopes to use during this season, just call the church office and we will be happy to put them in the mail to you asap.
Thank you so much for your faithfulness in giving to the Lord
