Welcome to CSBC

We invite you to worship the Lord with us Sunday. Whether you are a regular member of this church family or a guest, we want you to know we prayed for you. We asked the Lord to speak to every heart through both the music and the messages from God’s Word. 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!

-Pastor Dennis Jennings

Welcome Lewis & Karen McClendon

It is always a blessing to our church family when Lewis and Karen McClendon are able to come back to minister at CSBC. God has used them in our church family when they lived here in Springfield, and every time they come back the Lord uses them to be a blessing and encouragement to our church family. If you know them, welcome them back here. If you don’t, you are in for a treat as Lewis preaches for us today.

More Added To God’s Forever Family

It was exciting to hear of those who trusted Christ this week in our services, in their homes and in the group of teens who went to camp this week! Thank you for praying for them. We say a big “thank you” to those who worked with the young people as counsellors. We appreciate our youth pastor, Andy Young, his wife, Terrah and the other leaders who took the teens to camp!

VBS Just A Week Away!

Vacation Bible School begins on Monday, July 24 – 28, and you can help make a difference. We need an army of volunteers to help during VBS. Contact Emma DaShiell if you would like to help. Even if you can’t volunteer during VBS, you can help:

  • Come to VBS Decorating night this Thursday from 6-8 p.m.
  • With setup and decorating the buildings after church next Sunday night.
  • Help us canvass our “Jerusalem” neighborhoods around the church during CSBC Outreach on Monday with VBS door hangers. Every year we have guests who come because of these efforts, and some of them get saved as a result!
  • Bring a package or two of cookies and drop them off at the church office or in the lobby.

Pavillion Project Update

You may have noticed on the west side of our church that we are ready to pour a slab for a new pavilion. This will be such a wonderful addition to the space that we use for all kinds of events. Just like everything else, costs for this project have increased dramatically since we began the process. If you would like to help with the pavilion, add your gift to your offerings, and note in the memo field that it is for the pavilion.

CSBC Outreach

On Monday evenings, at 6:30 we have teams that make visits, write cards and letters, drop off Welcome Home packets to new move-ins and make phone calls – all for the purpose of actively reaching and ministering to make a difference in the life of another person whom Jesus loves. We provide a meal for those who come at 6:00. We have teams that minister to our seniors and others on Thursday at 10 am, and then Outreach happens again on Saturday morning at 10:00. Register each week by texting “outreach” to the church number, 417.889.1999.

Looking Ahead

  • Monday, July 17—CSBC Outreach
  • Tuesday, July 18—Prime Timers Luncheon 10:00 a.m.
  • Thursday, July 20—VBS Decorating Night 6pm
  • Sunday, July 30—VBS Family Night 6:00 p.m.

We want to encourage everyone to be faithful with their tithes and offerings.

You can give:

Thank you so much for your faithfulness in giving to the Lord
