Welcome to CSBC

It is such a blessing to be able to worship together. God never intended for us to live our Christian lives in a vacuum. God’s plan for every believer is for us to be a part of a local body – a place to belong, and place to teach and be taught the Word of God, a place to encourage and be encouraged. We are thankful you have chosen to join us. If you are a guest, we are excited you are here! We prayed that you would come! We have prayed that God’s Word would speak into every heart. 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!
