This past week we saw many new faces around Cherry Street Baptist Church during Vacation Bible School. It is always so exciting to meet new friends! Sunday we are expecting some of these new friends to join us for the services. If you are a guest for the first time, whether you came as a result of VBS, or you found us another way, we want you to know that we are honored you would join us to worship our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ! Church family, let’s show our guests a warm CSBC welcome!Please let us know you are here by filling out our digital guest card.We pray that God will bless you this weekend!

God Did It!
The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad. (Psalm 126:3)
We worked and prayed, and the Lord honored our efforts! So far as a result of VBS, at least 14 precious souls came to know the Lord as Savior. We praise the Lord for His blessings!
Words fail us to adequately express our gratitude to everyone who helped make Vacation Bible School a huge success. It took more than eighty volunteers each day! Whatever your role, whether you helped during VBS, or were part of the planning team, decorating team, canvassing or mailing team, whether you brought cookies, prayed for VBS, or all of the above – we want to say a big “Thank you!” God will bless you for the difference you made!
VBS Family Night Tonight
One of the best things about VBS is hearing the children and young people sing! We will get a little taste of Vacation Bible School as they sing during our Family Service tonight at 6 pm. After the service, there will be a time of fellowship with cookies and watermelon. Consider yourself appointed to the welcoming committee as we show the guests who come a warm CSBC welcome!
Surf’s Up For Kids
Our summer Wednesday night kids program called “Surf’s Up: The Beati-dudes!” continues through the summer months. 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.
There is nothing more biblical than taking the gospel out of the walls of the church and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with those who don’t know Him. There is nothing better we can do for one another than to show our love and concern for our brothers and sisters in Christ who need encouragement! These two great tasks find a practical expression during our GROW Outreach times each Monday evening at 6:45, and Thursday and Saturday mornings at 10:00. Come out this week to make a difference!

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
