Welcome to CSBC

Welcome to Easter Sunday at Cherry Street Baptist Church. We are always delighted to have guests with us each Sunday. During our Easter Celebration Service we trust you will be touched by the music and the message of God’s Word. There are nurseries for the babies, fun and exciting activities, and a great lesson for children through fifth grade in our children’s churches. We are glad you’re here. There is a place for you here at CSBC, “Where everyone is family!” Please let us know you are here by filling out our digital guest card. We pray that God will bless you this weekend!

“He is Risen” Easter Changes Everything!

“He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay,” (Matthew 28:6).  Roman soldiers had crucified Jesus. It was a most gruesome and torturous way to die. His lifeless body was taken from the cross and laid in the tomb of Joseph. A stone door was rolled into place, the tomb was sealed, and guards were placed there.  Man did everything necessary to end the life and influence of Jesus. Yet, on that Sunday morning, the stone was rolled back, the tomb was empty! Jesus arose victorious over sin, death, hell and the grave!  It is because He’s alive that you and I can know we can be forgiven, accepted into His family, and given eternal life with Him in heaven. Truly the resurrection of Jesus Christ changes everything for us for eternity!

 

Voter on Tuesday

There are very clear lines between the candidates for the Springfield School Board election this Tuesday, April 2. The Bible tells us in James 4:17, “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.” If you live in the school district (even beyond the city limits), pick up the Christian Voter Guides available in our lobby, familiarize yourself with the candidates that stand for biblical principles, and make a difference: vote!

 

Faith & Freedom Offering Praises

As of today, we have over $76,000 pledged to our debt retirement and more than $62,760 has already been received. Everything that comes in over our $68,000 goal will reduce the portion committed from the general fund over the next few months. We ought to all praise the Lord for His goodness to our church. He has done great things already!

 

Giving Your Faith and Freedom Gifts

If you are using offering envelopes, you can add your pledge amount, and mark it “Debt” 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 giving page. You can choose this option to add it as a gift in addition to your tithes and 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 may have been as many as half a dozen people affected by it. If you had difficulty with giving on the app or online, contact the church office for help.

Spring Ladies Retreat This Friday and Saturday

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. Due to limited space, High School Junior and Senior girls and up can register. Today is the T-shirt deadline to order. We are looking forward to this special time set aside just for you!

65th Anniversary Celebration

Cherry Street Baptist Church will be celebrating 65 years of ministry in Springfield and around the world on Friday through Sunday, July 5-7. On Friday evening we will take part in an “Evening Of Praise” with great music and wonderful CBSC guests from the past and present. On Saturday afternoon we will enjoy a wonderful cookout and fellowship event. Then on Sunday morning we will celebrate all that God has done and is doing! Don’t miss it!

Discovery Class Next Sunday, April 7

If you are new to CSBC as a member or a guest who want to find out more about our church, our Discovery Class is a place for you to learn more about who we are and what we believe in a relaxed, friendly setting. For three weeks beginning next Sunday morning during the 9:30 Bible study hour, the class will meet in the Conference Room off the north hallway. Pastor Dennis Jennings will share our church’s mission explore how you can grow your faith and find your place as part of our church. We’d love for you to join us!

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.
