Welcome to CSBC

Welcome to our service today. It is with great joy and gratitude that we gather to worship our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Let us open our hearts to offer our praise and receive the truth and guidance of His Word through music, teaching and preaching. Whether you are a long-time member or a first-time guest, you are embraced by the love of our congregation. We are honored by your presence and look forward to sharing this blessed time together! Please let us know you are here by filling out our digital guest card. We pray that God will bless you this weekend!

Vacation Bible School Two Weeks From Today

In two weeks, starting Sunday, June 2, we kick off the summer with Vacation Bible School. Steve Harney of Cool Kids Ministries brings Gospel magic, digital puppetry and ventriloquism all designed to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the truth of His Word. VBS begins on Sunday morning, continues during that evening’s Family Service, then nightly through Wednesday, June 5. Families are encouraged to attend this year’s VBS, which is aimed at kids and teens ages 3 through 12th grade! It’s not too early to register for VBS this year, which you can do at the Info Hub online or in the lobby. Even though things will look a bit different this year, we still have a great need for many volunteers to help run VBS! Even if you can’t be at VBS, there are ways you can be involved to help make this a great year of VBS!

Deadline For Cardinals Tickets is Sunday

This Tuesday, May 21 we will have an evening of family fun and fellowship at Hammons Field to watch the Springfield Cardinals take on the Tulsa Drillers. You can purchase your tickets at the Info Hub or by selecting “events” on the Realm Connect App then pick them up at the Info Hub in the lobby. Tickets must be purchased and picked up at the church Sunday.

Memorial Day Picnic

Our Church Family Picnic will be next Sunday afternoon, May 26. Bring a full meal, enough for your family and some extra to share, and we will put it all together for a delicious picnic dinner. We will be meeting at Lake Springfield Northwoods Pavilion from 4-6PM. Bring your camp chairs, outdoor games, and let’s have a great time of fellowship together!

Sunday School Teacher Appreciation Next Sunday

We are thankful for those who teach the Word of God to their classes faithfully each Sunday. We want to encourage our church family to take a moment and write a note or bring a card to your Sunday School teacher Sunday morning to thank them for their ministry in your life or the lives of your children.

Camp Scholarships Needed

Kids’ lives are changed and many get saved through the ministry of a summer youth camp. 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.

The Info Hub online provides our church family a centralized place to find information about any event, activity or ministry here at CSBC. To help you stay better informed, the Info Hub can function as an app on your smartphone’s home screen.

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.
