The CBSM Update: This Week’s News and Announcements

CBSM students, parents, and small group leaders:

Report on Last Wednesday: Praise God that this last Wednesday was packed-out (158 teens) with some powerful worship (led by to CBSM student-brothers, Lawson and Jackson Beasely) and a personal challenge to find our satisfaction in Jesus alone (from the book of Ecclesiastes). You can go to our blog or iTunes podcast to listen to the sermon.

This Wednesday night, we’re going to celebrate Christmas by worshipping Jesus for His birth! One way we’re celebrating is to wear the ugliest Christmas sweater that you can find! Our band is going to lead us in worship through a style of Christmas carols that you’ve never heard before. And I will be preaching on if Jesus’ mother Mary was really a virgin or not “Was Mary Naughty or Nice?” You definitely need to plan to come and bring tons of friends with you for this monumental night at CBSM!

NETMA is attached for your viewing pleasure. Be sure to check out the Reading Plan for this week.
