Welcome to CSBC

Welcome to Cherry Street Baptist Church. Sunday is a day of expectation. We are expecting the Lord to send guests to our church. If this is your first time with us, we want you to know that we are honored by your presence. We are expecting God to bless the preaching and teaching of God’s Word. As the Word is presented, God promises to use it to change lives. As we pray for Vacation Bible School this week, we expect the Lord to do a great work in the lives and families of the children and young people who will attend. 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!

“Twists &Turns” Vacation Bible School Starts Monday

“Twists & Turns” VBS kicks off tomorrow morning for ages 3-12th grade. Vacation Bible School runs from 9-11:30 Monday through Friday. Doors open at 8:30. Save yourself a lot of time by registering your children today.

You Can Still Help!

After the evening service we will be putting the final decor in place for VBS. “Many hands make light work,” so if you are willing, your help will be appreciated! We still need prepackaged cookies, so you can bring them tonight or even during the week of VBS. If your schedule allows and you would like to help, contact Emma DaShiell, and she will get you plugged into a role. Finally, invite the families in your neighborhood! You never know how God will use a simple invitation!

“Company’s Coming”

Over the next week or so we will have many people on our church property for the very first time – children, parents, grandparents – as a result of VBS. We always want to be aware of new people in our midst, greeting them warmly and getting to know them. During this important time we want our church family to be especially in tune to our guests. Remember that you were new to our church once, too! Your kindness towards someone new may be just the thing that breaks down barriers for the Gospel – and allows God to do miraculous things in their lives. It is wonderful to be a part of a church family that loves God and loves people too!

Help With Pavillion Project Underway

Our new pavilion is being constructed on the west side of our property. This will be such a wonderful addition to the space that we use for all kinds of events. If you would like to help with the costs of the pavilion, add your gift to your offerings, and note in the memo field that it is for the pavilion.

CSBC Outreach Teams

On Monday evenings at 6:30 we have teams that make home visits, write cards and letters, drop off Welcome Home packets to new move-ins and make phone calls of encouragement – 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.

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