I'm Interested In:

Welcome to CSBC

The psalmist said it well: “I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD,” (Psalm 122:1). Every Christian ought to love assembling to worship the Lord, hear the Word of God, enjoy fellowship with other believers and encourage one another. We come together to praise the Lord for the salvation He provided and share the good news of the Gospel to those outside His forever family. If you are a guest with us today, we want to say, “Welcome. We are glad 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!

Bible Study Brings Life Change

Listen to people who take the time to study the Bible tell their own personal stories and you will hear one common theme: The Holy Spirit uses God’s Word, the Bible, to change their lives. The Bible is God’s Answer Book, Guide Book, and Comfort Book. Join us each Sunday morning at 9:30 as we study the Bible together. We are on a systematic plan to go through the entire Bible in nine years. We have multiple groups for every adult and age/graded classes for each student and child.

Celebrating the Ladies of CSBC

Mother’s Day, May 12, we will be honoring all the ladies of our church family. We are encouraging everyone to bring your mom or daughter, and invite another mom or daughter to be with you on that Sunday. There will also be a Mothers & Daughters event on Friday, May 10, at 6:30 p.m. Embrace the opportunity to connect, share quality time, and draw encouragement from God’s Word. Enjoy an evening of heartwarming fellowship with wonderful ladies.

The Info Hub as an App

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 Android phones, follow these steps:

1) Open Chrome; 2) Navigate to mycsbc.com/info; 3) Tap the menu icon (the 3 dots in upper right-hand corner); 4) Tap “Add to Home screen”; 5) Change the name to “CSBC Info Hub” and choose “add” and it will appear on your home.

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.

Camp Garage Sale This Week

To help offset the cost of youth camp for the teens who go to camp this summer, our camp garage sale will take place this Thursday evening through Saturday. If you have any items you would like to donate, please contact the church office during business hours and set up a time to drop them off. Thanks for helping get these young people to this life-changing week!

Faith & Freedom Offering Praises

As of this writing, we have over $76,000 pledged to our debt retirement and more than $65,508.05 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.

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.
