Church Briefs

Sandcreek Baptist Church

Just a few reminders of dates and times for upcoming services.

Remember that on Sunday morning, Dec. 22, the youth will be conducting our morning service. I’m sure you’ll want to be there to support them and join in the fellowship of the service. That evening, about 4 p.m., they will meet at the church with anyone interested in going caroling. Practice your favorite Christmas carols and plan to join them in this fun evening that will conclude back at the church for hot chocolate and cookies.

We are planning a 6 p.m. candlelight communion service on Christmas Eve.

What a wonderful time to remember the Christ Child who gave His life for us.

It’s time to bring your offering/Love gift this Sunday to be included in this year’s total for our church. Seems we all have a lot to be thankful for.

Weather permitting, the Faith Singers will practice this Saturday at 9 a.m.

Seems like our plans depend mostly on what the weather is these days. Schools have been delayed and canceled because of that beautiful white stuff that’s so pretty coming down if you can stay inside.

If we have family that has to be out and about in it, we offer up our prayers for their safety knowing that God hears and will answer with safety for everyone. We should stay in touch with God all year long, every day; not only when the weather is bad and we’re asking for His protection. Think about that when we have a beautiful, sunny day next June....and we WILL have sunny days again. Just tell Him a simple “Thank You” and attend church somewhere this Sunday.

He’ll be happy to meet you there.

  • 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

  • Poverty has its advantages I must confess to a severe case of poverty. I never took a vow of poverty; it just seems to have worked out that way for me. I am so poor the church mice have packed their bags and moved on. If I knew where they moved to, I might join them.Being poor
