Church Briefs

Sandcreek Baptist

Ladies, men, and children, check your closets for good, unwanted, outgrown, wearable, clothes in good, clean condition to donate to the Westport clothes closet.

They will be accepting your items August 13. The “closet” will then be open for “business” August 14 to 16.

Ladies, if you’re interested in using up some of your material and trim “stash,” check our website ( and go to “Outreach” for the “pillowcase dress” pattern and instructions.

You can make them at your home or as I mentioned, last week, we will meet at the church, at a later date to assemble them for children and young women in Africa. I will keep you posted for that date on case you want to join us for the fun and fellowship that will be included. Maybe even some food.

In two weeks the youth will offer cinnamon rolls for sale, on Sunday morning. This is a fundraiser for their upcoming, weekend retreat and camping trip planned for August 23 to 25. You can place your order this next Sunday or call Jan Z. or Angie, our youth sponsors.

You could even call the church office and leave an order by phone. Have you missed the humidity in the air recently? I sure haven’t. It’s been so pleasant and comfortable. If this weather has been a blessing to you and your family, add something to your “Love” box and don’t forget to say “Thank You” to the one and only always accurate “Weatherman.” Hope to see you in church this Sunday. No reservation needed.

Liberty Baptist

Sunday School will begin at 9:30 a.m.

The Thankful Hearts Class lesson, “Feast Of Tabernacles” will be taken from Nehemiah 8:2, 3, 13-18. The Devotional Reading coming from Exodus 23: 12 - 17; and the Background Scripture will be Nehemiah 7: 73b - 8:18, Leviticus 23:33-43.

We welcome all to come and join in a wonderful time of sharing and learning.

  • We could learn a lesson from rodeo: Either let go...or be dragged A friend who has some experience with rodeo horses sent me a most picturesque proverb: “Let go or be dragged.” Whether this phrase was first spoken by a Zen master who had achieved enlightenment on the mountainside, or by a battered cowboy nursing hi
