Easter Changes Everything: 21 Days and Counting

The sorrow and suffering Jesus willingly endured on the cross gave way to the joy of the resurrection. We say “Easter Changes Everything,” because we know that Jesus did it all for us! We have the sure and certain hope of eternal life, and we want others to know that their eternal destiny can be changed from death to life in Heaven. 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 approaches, who will you invite to join you on Easter Sunday, March 31? Easter changes everything. It can change them too!

Faith & Freedom Offering Praises

Last week we received a special offering and pledges towards eliminating the last of our church’s mortgage indebtedness by our 65th Anniversary Celebration in July. We had a two-tier goal for this loan repayment – the first was $47k – this was the VICTORY goal. The second goal was $68K – this was our HALLELUJAH goal. We are thankful to report our total for the pledges and offering exceeded this $68,145! Hallelujah! We praise the Lord! Not only that, more than half has already been received as of this writing: $40,190! We thank the Lord for His goodness and the faithfulness and generosity of His people.

Giving Your Faith and Freedom Offering

If you are using offering envelopes, you can add your pledge amount, and mark it “Debt” on and the amount on the line marked “Other.” In addition, “Debt Retirement” is now a drop-down option on our Connect App and on our website. You can choose this option to add it as a gift in addition to your tithes, offerings, missions giving, etc. Choose “Add another fund” and choose “Debt retirement” on the drop-down menu. Thank you for your faithful giving. NOTE: The credit/debit card processing system Realm uses has recently changed. There have been a few people affected by it. If you have difficulty with giving on the app or online, contact the church office for help.

Wednesday 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.

Thank You For Your Faithful Giving

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

You can give:

By using dropping your offering envelopes into the offering boxes in the back of the auditorium and on the walls in the lobby

Through the website at mycsbc.com

On the Realm Connect app

Through the mail – our offering envelopes are postage paid – meaning you can drop your offering in the mail without a stamp. If you would like us to send you envelopes to use during this season, just call the church office and we will be happy to put them in the mail to you asap.

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

Realm Connect – Our Church App

Our Realm Connect App allows us to send out announcements electronically as needed, rather than waiting for Sunday to publish them in the bulletin. The Connect App also allows you to be faithful with your giving. Realm Connect allows us to do many things more efficiently and effectively, like managing events, group attendance and communications and so much more! If you don’t have the Realm Connect app, send an email to Info@mycsbc.com We will send a link to the Realm Connect app.
