The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 48,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 18 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
CBSM High Schoolers! Your very own BACK TO SCHOOL BASH is this Wednesday starting at 6pm! If you’re a high schooler (9th – 12th grade) in the 256 area and not an official part of CBSM, we want you with us to! Its going to be different from our Middle School Back 2 School Bash. We will chill it out a little more for yall…so that you can hang out more. So we’re going to have bonfire for yall to hang out, a delish grill-out of hotdogs, some fire-pits so that you can roast your own smores, etc. We’ll also have some sweet snacks like popcorn, snow cones, and cotton candy for yall. And we’ll even have a few of the huge, blow-up, inflatable games such as the Team Challenge Obstacle Course, the Bouncy Boxing, Dodge Ball, etc. But before all that starts, we want you to come and check out one of our High School Only worship services at 6:30pm. You’ll love our rockin praise band, all the fun we have together, and the challenging/real message. At the end of the worship service, we’ll have tons of prizes to give away like gift cards to Starbucks, iTunes, The Monaco, etc. And the grand prize this year is you can have your choice of a flat screen tv, an iPod, a tablet, or a video game system…because we’re giving away a $300 gift card to Best Buy! Then after the drawing at the end of the worship service, we’ll kick yall out to the bonfire, food, snacks, blow ups, cookout, etc. All of this is because we love all the teens in our community, and we just want to serve you. So this Wednesday, from 6 – 10pm, we want you at CBSM (Capshaw Baptist Church. 14944 Dupree-Worthey Rd. Harvest, AL 35749). Tell all your High School friends, and get here!

There has got to be snow skiing in heaven…because we always get closer to Christ every time we go! We go snow skiing and snow boarding every year because God always uses it in our lives to grow closer together as a student ministry, to grow in friendship, and to grow closer to Jesus overall. All teenagers are invited. CBSMers, their friends, and even their enemies. We want as many to go as possible…so that as many as possible can grow closer together and to Christ! Here are the details…
You need to fillout a “Ski Trip Registration Card”, have it signed by your parents, and give a $100 deposit check to Pastor Chip or Bill Spurgeon BY Wednesday, October 13th. Then you’ll need to turn in your remaining balance of $250 BY Wednesday, December 8th. We’re also asking everyone going and their parents to attend a mandatory ski trip meeting on Sunday, December 5. Your $350 (total) will cover your transportation, lodging, meals while you’re in NC, basic/necessary ski rentals (skis, poles, and boots), lift tickets, and your official CBSM Ski Trip tshirt. If you have any other questions, feel free to email pastor Chip anytime!
