Digital Bulletin 1-15-2023
New Year, New Opportunities!
Welcome to CSBC! We are excited to be with our church family on Sunday to worship our Lord together. We don’t say that lightly. The Hebrew word for “worship” was first used when Abraham went to Mt. Moriah to offer his son as a sacrifice to God in obedience to the instructions of the Lord. We come together to offer our sacrifices of praise in obedient worship. I trust that our hearts would reflect a desire to be obedient to Word of God as we hear it in the teaching and preaching. 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!

Your Worthy Walk In 2023
“For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; (10) That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;” (Colossians 1:9-10). Paul’s words for them basis of a Christian life that is consistently growing and fruitful for the Lord. At CSBC, we remain committed to equipping every believer in this God-ordained process for their life, from Sunday School Bible study to the Next Steps Wednesdays, to providing opportunities to serve both inside and outside our church family. How is your walk? We are excited to see how God will grow and develop you in this new year!
Kitchen Remodel Underway
We are excited to see the space cleared out and ready to begin the renewal. We are grateful for the many volunteers who have taken part this week. We are looking forward to seeing this project completed in the coming weeks.
