I'm Interested In:

Welcome to CSBC

Welcome to CSBC. I don’t believe it’s coincidence you are here. God desires to speak to you through His Word. If you listen closely, you will hear Him speak into your life through Bible study during the Sunday School hour, and through the music and the preaching of God’s word in our Worship Service. Whether you are a guest or a regular part of this church family, we want you to know we are honored by your presence. CSBC family, we want to make sure that we show our guests a warm 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

Welcome Pastor Bruce Humbert

Bruce Humbert is Pastor Emeritus of Sak Trail Baptist Church in Richton Park, Illinois. He retired as senior pastor in 2019, and God has been using Bruce’s preaching and teaching ministry across the country the last five years. We are honored to welcome Bruce and his dear wife, Laurie, back to CSBC today. He will be speaking for us as we continue our series, “Living Life With A Purpose” with a focus on family life.

Honoring the Ladies of CSBC on Mother’s Day

We are so thankful for all the wonderful moms and daughters of CSBC! Next Sunday, Mother’s Day, May 12, we will honor all the ladies of our church family. We are encouraging everyone to bring your mom or daughter (if possible), as well as invite another mom or daughter to be with you. It’s a great way to help make their day special, and even point someone to the Lord Jesus Christ. We will have a special gift for all the ladies in attendance next Sunday morning.

Mothers & Daughters

There will also be a Mothers & Daughters event on Friday, May 10, at 6:30 p.m. Come and connect and share quality time with the great ladies of CBSC and draw encouragement from God’s Word. There will be a baked potato bar and lots of goodies. Information and registration is available at the Info Hub online or in the lobby.

CSBC Night at the Cardinals

Tuesday, May 21 we will have an evening of family fun and fellowship at Hammons Field to watch the Springfield Cardinal take on the Tulsa Drillers! Tickets are $10 a piece and it is $2 Hotdog and Bratwurst night at the game. Join us for a relaxing evening to kick start our summer season!

Tickets must be purchased at the church no later than May 19.

Camp Scholarships Needed

Youth camp changes young people’s lives! Kids are often saved through the ministry of a summer youth camp. The price of this summer’s youth camp has gone up considerably, and as a result, the need for scholarships is as acute as ever. If you would like to help a young person go to camp, add your gift amount to your regular giving (through Realm, the website or by envelop giving) and note that it’s for camp scholarships. Thank you for your investment in our young people.
