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. Church family, be sure and show these guests a warm CSBC welcome. 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

Our Threefold Purpose

Jesus was clear in the Great Commission that we are to REACH, TEACH, and MINISTER to everyone we can. In simple terms, it means that everyone matters! Because we love Jesus, we love those that He loves, and He loves everyone! Here at CSBC, we are committed to sharing the Gospel so that every man, woman, boy and girl can know what it means to be forgiven and have eternal life! We are committed to teaching the timeless truths of the Word of God in relevant and practical ways to equip believers to live for Jesus victoriously in their own context every day. We are committed to love one another, bear one another’s burdens, and care for one another as God’s Word teaches us to do.

Add the CSBC Info Hub to your Phone’s Home Screen

We have developed the Info Hub to provide our church family a centralized place to find details and/or registration info about any event, activity or ministry here at CSBC. For your convenience, the Info Hub can function as an app on your smartphone’s home screen.

For iPhones, follow these steps:

1) Open Safari; 2) enter mycsbc.com/info and tap “Go”; 3) Tap the “Share” button on the bottom of the page (square box with up arrow); 4) scroll down until you see “Add to Home Screen” and tap on it; 5) The Add to Home Screen dialog box will appear; edit it to say “CSBC Info Hub”; 6) Confirm it, and click Add. Safari will close automatically, and you will be taken to where the icon is located on your iPhone’s or iPad’s home screen.

Discovery Class Continues Sunday.

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. Today and the next Sunday morning 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.

Faith & Freedom Offering Praises

As of this writing, we have over $76,000 pledged to our debt retirement and more than $64,240 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.

Coming Attractions

Check out the CSBC Info Hub for more information about our upcoming class activities, a Mother/Daughter Event, Memorial Day Picnic, Vacation Bible School, Youth Camp, Kids events, our 65th Anniversary Celebration, missions trips to Calgary, Alberta Canada and to the Paris Olympics. There’s lot’s of opportunities ahead!

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.
