Women’s Summer Book Discussion

All women are invited to a discussion of the book 12 Faithful Women to be led by Rhonda Hensarling on Monday, June 21, from 7 to 8:30pm. Please sign up here to receive discussion questions and reserve your seat in The Commons. We think you’ll be inspired and challenged as you read and discuss these 12 stories of steadfast endurance in the lives of faithful women who have gone before us. The book is available for purchase in the Resource Center on Sundays following the morning worship service.

Bible Quizzing Camp

Countryside has had a very successful Bible Quizzing ministry for many years, and for the first time we will be having a “Bible Quiz Camp” at Countryside on June 2-4 from 1-5 PM each day to teach you about Bible Quizzing. So if you’re between the ages of 9-19 and want to have fun memorizing God’s Word while making new friends and enjoying food and games, join us at Bible Quiz Camp. We’ll be memorizing from the books of James, Romans and Revelation this season. Sign up by contacting Richard Dietzel

Men’s Institute

Men, mark your calendars for the next Men’s Institute on Saturday, May 29 from 7:30-9:00 AM in the Commons. This is a great opportunity to be challenged and encouraged from Scripture and to fellowship with other men in our church. Please sign up online here. We hope to see you there!

Men’s Softball League

Countryside will be hosting its own Men’s Softball league this summer. The games will be played on Monday nights from 6:30 to 8:30 at Heritage Park. The league will run from June 14th through August 16th (10 weeks). There will be 2 games each Monday night at 1 hour each. The cost will be $50 per person. You must be 18 or older to play in the league (due to liability reasons we can’t have anyone under 18) and be a member or attender of Countryside. Please sign up here. If you have any questions contact Travis Jacobs who will serve as the league administrator. 


Young Adult Class men, you are invited to the upcoming Saturday Meat-Up at Cordell Nightingales house on Saturday May 22 from 12:00 – 2:00 PM. We will eat a meat entrée of some sort and spend some quality time in fellowship with one another. This will be a great way to connect with one another and build friendships with brothers in Christ. Please RSVP by Sunday, May 16th so we can plan for food. You can email or text Cordell for questions or to sign up.  Please plan on bringing $5.00 cash or use cashapp.

CSIDE Student Identity Retreat 2021

Teen Camp registration is LIVE! This year’s teen camp will be June 7th-11th in Eagle Rock, Missouri. The Cost is $270 per student. Payment will be due by May 16th.

Questions of identity are at the forefront of almost everything students are a part of, and our culture is screaming at everyone to choose their own identity. The message of the gospel is clear: everyone’s identity has everything to do with how they relate to Jesus Christ. Pastor Mike Summers and Alex Lynch will unpack what identifies the follower of Jesus Christ.

Registration for teen camp runs from March 14- May 16th. Registration will be available in the south foyer (or the resource center) following Sunday morning services, in the youth app, through the QR code on posters in the church hallways, or click here.

Questions? Contact Philip Johnson at
