Welcome to CSBC

It is a joy to welcome you to Cherry Street Baptist Church. We are so thankful for our church family – for your faithfulness in the ministries that God has given us in reaching, teaching and ministering in the greater Springfield area. We are also thankful for the guests the Lord sends our way. We are so glad that you have chosen to worship with us. 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!

Easter Changes Everything

The promise of Easter gives us cause for celebration and renewed hope – when we put our faith in Christ, accepting the grace offered through His sacrifice, our sins are washed away and fear is replaced with the confident expectation of eternal life. The suffering Jesus willingly endured on the cross presents a path from darkness into light – we need only accept the loving invitation. This Easter, as we reflect in gratitude on the gift of eternal life we have received, let us open our hearts to share it. Consider who in your life needs to hear this life-changing good news – who needs this same hope and assurance that comes from the forgiveness and salvation Jesus offers? As the joy of Easter morning approaches, begin praying about who you can invite to join you on Easter Sunday, March 31.

Faith & Freedom Offering Sunday

Sunday we will be receiving a special offering and pledges towards eliminating the last of our church’s mortgage indebtedness by our 65th Anniversary Celebration in July. All who give will be known as our “Faith & Freedom Partners.” We want to thank you in advance for responding to God’s leading to take part in this offering at this pivotal moment in our church’s history. We praise God for every act of generosity by our church family!

“Reboot” Your Christian Life with First Step Class

Though saved, many Christians lack a grounded faith. No matter where you are on your walk, our First Step “Foundations” class on Wednesday nights will help you begin or rebuild your spiritual foundation. Together we will ground our Christian walk afresh each week through Biblical truth and fellowship.

Easter Egg Hunt on March 30

Join us for our Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, March 30 at 1pm for games, snacks, crafts and retelling the Resurrection story, culminating in an egg hunt on our church grounds. This event is for fifth grade and under. Invite your friends, family and neighbors!

Ladies Retreat Coming April 5-6

Ladies, a wonderful retreat awaits you on April 5-6 in Branson! Mark your calendars now for this uplifting Friday evening and Saturday getaway. More retreat details and registration are available in the lobby. Stop by the table or text “ladies” to 417-889-1999 to reserve your spot for great fellowship and inspiration.
