Welcome to the Cape Girardeau Baptist Association!

We exist to assist churches in fulfilling the great commission found in Matthew 28:19-20. Our churches partner together to take the gospel to the least reached in the world so that the glory of God might be made known where it is not known and those that are far from God might be brought near through the atoning work of Jesus Christ. To this end, our ministries locally are designed to proclaim the gospel and equip those who believe to engage in the mission of Jesus. Because we are convinced that this mission is given to the church, our ministries are led by local churches partnering together. You can find a complete list of these partnering churches on this site.

Cancellation of July Associational Summer Camps

The Governor made it clear Friday, May 22, that social distancing will not be dropped before mid June at the earliest. He also said the primary reason was to see what impact the Memorial Day weekend celebration had on the number of new cases and hospitalizations. It seems he is taking a very cautious approach going forward; and I really don’t fault him for that approach. 

Given this, it seems to me that our best course of action regarding our planned July camps would be to cancel and focus our energies on trying to plan a weekend retreat in late August and/or October/November.  I think we can plan a retreat for the August time period and if we can’t do it then, we can do the retreat in October/November. If we get to do the August retreat we can plan a second retreat in October/November. 

This has been an extremely difficult decision to make and it saddens me to cancel our July camps. Thank you for your understanding.
