Sometimes life can just be busy. It seems we are always looking for the next thing that will save us time! Well, let me tell you that the Lord gave us Sundays to set aside the busy-ness of life to worship Him. Sundays are days to remember, reflect and rejoice at all that God has done in the past, is doing now, and will do in the future. I hope you approach this Sunday with that in mind. We hope you choose to worship with us. It is our prayer that the music, teaching and preaching of God’s Word will encourage and impact your life!If you are a guest with us, please let us know you are here by filling out our digital guest card.We pray that God will bless you this weekend!

Exciting Results From Faith Promise Sunday
At the conclusion of our Missions Conference last week, we received the initial group of Faith Promise commitment cards in the amount of $302,156, which was more than $50,000 over what was committed last year on the initial Sunday. We humbly say with the Apostle Paul, “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen,” (Ephesians 3:20-21).

Here’s How to Give Your Faith Promise Commitment
When it was time to receive the offering the Corinthian church had committed to give, Paul wrote, “Now therefore perform the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to will, so there may be a performance also out of that which ye have,” (2 Corinthians 8:11). Along with your tithes and offerings to our general fund, which supports our church ministry here at CSBC, you can use our offering envelopes, add your faith promise missionary offering and mark the envelope accordingly. If you give using the Connect App or through our website, you can choose “+Another Fund” and choose “Missions.” You can even schedule your offering as recurring gifts by choosing the “Give Multiple Times” option. Thank you for your faithfulness to give as God provides!
Please Share Your Faith Promise Stories!
Each year after our missions conference, we hear marvelous stories of how God provides in unusual or unexpected ways for someone who made a commitment to give to reach the lost around the world by faith! We love those stories! Please share them with others. Email them to our church staff and share them in your Sunday School class. You will be a great encouragement to continue to trust God.

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
Realm Connect – Our Church App
Our Realm Connect App allows us to send out announcements electronically as needed, rather than waiting for Sunday to publish them in the bulletin. The Connect App also allows you to be faithful with your giving. Realm Connect allows us to do many things more efficiently and effectively, like managing events, group attendance and communications and so much more! If you don’t have the Realm Connect app, send an email to Info@mycsbc.com We will send a link to the Realm Connect app.
