CBSM students, parents, and leaders:
We’re coming off of one SUPER AWESOME Sunday as we had over 1000 with us for Easter worshipping Jesus all together. Many were saved. Several were baptized. And Jesus got all the glory! I’m crazy pumped about this Wednesday as we start the book of Job which is all about going through hard times, being afflicted, suffering, and remaining faithful to God. Continue to do a great job of bringing all your friends, but especially think of those that may be hurting, going through hard times, and have many questions about God in it. Remember your BASIC and ADVANCE second deposits are due this Sunday as well. Check below for details!
NETMA is attached for your viewing pleasure. Be sure to check out the Reading Plan for this week.

Here’s what you need to know for this week…
STORYLINE Wednesday Worship (6:00 – 8:00pm)
This Wednesday we’ll kick-off a brand spanking new series on the book of Job called “Affliction”. I just saw the Clash of the Titans movie, so we’ll probably talk about it as it relates to Job…a crazy comparison! We’ll have pizza for sale for just $1 a slice as always. We’ll continue on with our “minute to win it” games. And of course we’ll have some intense worship all throughout the night…as always! Bring all your unchurched/unsaved friends…especially reach out to those who are hurting from suffering and bring them!
FRAMEWORK Sunday School (9:15 – 10:15am)
This Sunday, we will meet in the student building at 9:15am for announcements, and then go to our small group rooms to discuss what God taught us and did in our lives on Wednesday night and through the week.
