Church Renewal Weekend - Friday, October 7 - Sunday, October 9
A Wonderful Weekend of Spiritual Renewal, Praise, Prayer, Music, and Testimony

Part of the prayer circle for our ministry team during our Lay Renewal Celebration Worship Service, Sunday evening, October 9, 2016. The completed circle extended around the entire sanctuary. Click for enlarged picture.

Our Church Renewal Weekend concluded on Sunday evening, October 9 with a Spirit-filled 3 hour service of worship, testimony, song, praise and prayer. The Sunday night celebration service was the highlight of a wonderful weekend as we evaluated what the Holy Spirit has been saying to us. Dozens of our church family gave powerful, joyful, and tearful testimonies about what the Lord is doing in our lives. The entire weekend was a powerful time of family building as we renewed our relationship with the Lord, and as we remembered who we are and Whose we are and reflected on where we are along our Christian Journey.

We are grateful to the wonderful visiting team of Christians from other churches and several states, who led us in praise songs, testimonies, and small group worship and who became part of our loving church family for the weekend. Thanks also to the dozens of our family who stepped forward in leadership and team work to make this weekend a time of Spiritual Renewal. Special thanks are extended to those many volunteers providing the delicious fellowship dinners, wonderful morning coffee prayer meetings, visiting team member accommodations, and numerous other gifts of time and love!

The weekend actually began (schedule) on Thursday afternoon with a 24-hour prayer vigil, continued Friday night with a Fellowship Dinner in the Family Life Center, which was followed by a general session in the sanctuary. There were meetings in our church member’s homes on Saturday morning and separate meetings for men and ladies at lunch. Saturday evening the church regrouped for another meal and general session and special family prayer time. Sunday morning, our Sunday School time was used for testimonies from home church members and a special Sunday Worship Service completed the visiting team member’s part of the weekend.

Highlights from our October 9, 2016 Renewal Weekend Sunday Morning Worship Service: Our CSBC Worship Team performs You Are Worthy Of My Praise and Glorious Day beginning at 2:25 into the podcast. Announcements and prayer for our Renewal Weekend, and victims of Hurricane Matthew's flooding and winds (including renewed flooding at Hickory Hill Baptist Church), begin at 9:30. College Street's Adult Choir, with soloist Lanny Wilkie, sing We Will Remember at 16:15 . Our visiting renewal team members conduct a Renewal Worship Service with testimonies and messages, beginning at 24:45.

Update: On Monday, October 10, Pastor Ken received good news from our friends at Hickory Hill. They were able to set up sand bags to protect the church prior to the rain, wind and flooding. The areas surrounding the church did sustain more water than last year, but the water level didn’t last for days like it did last year. The water had gone down by Sunday. Someone with a backhoe was able to open up ditches and the drainage took place. Members of the church found minimal water seepage inside the church and were able to remove that before any meaningful damage took place. Praise the Lord! (Our Missions Page has more about Hickory Hill.)
