Welcome to CSBC

Welcome To Cherry Street Baptist Church. If you listen to people who take the time to study the Bible tell their own personal stories, you will hear one common theme: The Holy Spirit uses God’s Word, the Bible, to change their lives. The Bible is God’s Answer Book, Guide Book, and Comfort Book. Join us each Sunday morning as we study the Bible. We have multiple Bible study groups each Sunday morning for every adult. There are age/graded classes for each student and child. If you are a guest with us, we want to say, “Welcome. We are glad you are here!” Get connected through one of the Sunday School Bible study classes. 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!

Veterans Ministry Begins Wednesday

There are nearly 30,000 veterans in our immediate area, all who need a relationship with Jesus Christ. This Wednesday evening begins a new ministry to reach and teach unsaved and unchurched vets. The Discipled Veteran meetings will be held on Wednesday evenings at 6:30. Be praying about this exciting ministry opportunity for our church. If you know a veteran who is unsaved or unchurched, please fill out one of the DVM (Discipled Veterans Ministry) New Contact cards and drop it into one of the offering boxes in the lobby or the back of the auditorium.

Family Service Tonight: “16 Verses…”

In our 6 p.m. Family Service Sunday night we will continue our new study called “16 Verses That Tell The Whole Story.” This is a study of 16 key verses that stand as turning points in the Bible’s storyline. Children and adults will see how God’s Word tells a single story about His glory and His grace.

Outreach Honor Roll Dinner

Our Outreach Honor Roll is for those who have a first time guest with them in one of our services. We a filled up our Honor Roll Board, which means we will have a dinner for those on the Outreach Honor Roll this Friday, April 28 at 6 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. A new Outreach Honor Roll board will go up next Sunday, so keep praying and looking for and bringing your “1” – the person the Lord will uniquely use you to reach in 2023.
