Join Us On Sunday, July 17, 2022

Welcome! Jana and I are out Sunday, but I still wanted to welcome you to the services at Cherry Street Baptist Church. We are glad that you have chosen to worship with us. If you are a regular part of our church family, we want you to know that you are important to God and to this church! If this is your first time at our church, or you are a returning guest, we are thankful you are here, and we want to see God work in your life! CSBC is a loving and welcoming family of believers committed to see God’s Word changing lives. Make yourself at home in our CSBC family! Please let us know you are here by filling out our digital guest card. We pray that God will bless you this weekend!

Welcome Bruce and Lorie Humbert

We are happy to welcome Pastor Bruce Humbert of Chicago to preach for us Sunday. Bruce is Pastor Emeritus of Sauk Trail Baptist Temple, where he was senior pastor for 30 years. You will be blessed by the powerful preaching of God’s Word in both the service this morning and in the Family Service tonight. Please show the Humberts a warm CSBC welcome.

A Great Week Of Youth Camp

Our teens had a great last week away at youth camp. We are thrilled to report that five young people from our church group trusted Christ as their Savior. Others made decisions to rededicate their lives to the Lord. This was all made possible by so many of our church family who sacrificially gave so these teens could attend camp. Your generosity has made an eternal difference. We are so thankful!

Help With VBS! Volunteers, Cookies & Canvassing

There are three ways you can help with Vacation Bible School. First, we need lots of cookies for VBS snacks. If you are able, would you please pick up some packages of cookies for VBS and drop them off at the “Cookie Box” in the lobby this week? Second, we still need VBS volunteers for Monday through Friday mornings. See Emma Dashiell or call the church office if you have any availability. Finally, you can help us reach our neighborhood and yours. We want to deliver VBS flyers to every home in the neighborhoods surrounding our church. If you would have a few minutes to help, pick up a map and handful of flyers at the table in the lobby and deliver them to the homes on a couple of blocks. Pick up a few to give to your unsaved or unchurched family and friends as well. If we all work together, God can do something great at VBS this year!

Teen Excursions During VBS

This year includes 1984 arcade, hiking Busiek state park, playing knockerball and archery tag, and floating the James river. Cost for the week’s events is $43 with an optional meal plan for an additional $23 (sack lunches required if meal plan is not purchased). Go to to sign your teen up today!
