Welcome to CSBC

Welcome to Cherry Street Baptist Church on this first Sunday of April. Jesus said in Matthew 18:20 “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” It is amazing to know that when we meet together, the Lord Jesus Christ is with us. Knowing this, we come to worship Him, to sing His praises, to proclaim the truth of God’s Word, all with an expectation that He will move among us and change our lives. If you are a guest with us today, we are thankful you are here! Please let us know you are here by filling out our digital guest card. We pray that God will bless you this weekend!

-Pastor Dennis Jennings

The Greatest Change

Since last Saturday, God has worked in a marvelous way! We have seen at least eight precious souls born into God’s forever family. Heaven rejoices and so should we each time someone trusts Christ as their Savior. Our Easter theme was “Easter Changes Everything.” These souls have realized the great change possible in this life: their eternal destiny was changed from eternal punishment for their sins, to eternal life in Heaven with the Lord!

New to CSBC? Discovery Class Meets Sunday at 9:30 am.

If you are new to CSBC as a member or a guest who wants to find out more about our church, our Discovery Class is a place for you. Learn about who we are and what we believe in a relaxed, friendly setting. Beginning Sunday and continuing the next two Sunday mornings during the 9:30 Bible study hour, the class will meet in the Conference Room in 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!

What is the CSBC Info Hub?

To help our church family to be better informed about the goings on at Cherry Street, we have created a new place on our website (and soon in our lobby) we are calling the CSBC Info Hub. We recognized the need to provide you a centralized place to find details and/or registration info about any event, activity or ministry here at CSBC. Checkout mycsbc.com/info for a new and better way to find what you need at CSBC. We welcome feedback about how we can make the Info Hub better.

Faith & Freedom Offering Praises

As of today, we have over $76,000 pledged to our debt retirement and more than $63,535 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. Praise the Lord for His goodness to our church. He has done great things!

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.

Mark Your Calendar for 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!

Coming This Summer

It’s hard to believe that summer is just around the corner. With that comes Vacation Bible School, Youth Camp, Kids events, our 65th Celebration, missions trips to Calgary, Alberta Canada and to the Paris Olympics. Check out these things and more on the Info Hub at mycsbc.com/info

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.
