Sandcreek Baptist Church
“Oh, What a Beautiful Morning.”
That’s what I thought when I looked out early Thursday morning to see the fresh falling snow that had already coated/covered the trees and shrubs in our back yard. Of course, for those
who had to get off to work or maybe a trip out of town it wasn’t so beautiful.
But it was something to take away the sadness of having to remove and put away those many, beautiful, Christmas decorations until next year. That’s what is facing the deacons and friends at Sandcreek this Saturday. The Faith Singers will practice at 9 a.m. and at 10 a.m. we’re hoping several will come to make fast work of taking down our sanctuary decorations and restoring the church building to it’s usual decor. What a change that will make. The lights on the tree, the candles, and the nativity all make the sanctuary seem so warm and bright.
They just seem to make you feel welcome and anxious to worship together. Can we find that same spirit when the decorations are gone? Of course! Remember that it’s not the decorations that make the church a welcoming place. It’s the people that come there to worship and fellowship together. The music and hearing God’s Word make the sanctuary a place we all want to be on Sunday morning. Hope you’ll make an effort to be there this week.
It’s the start of a new year and I’ve been thinking I believe I’ll read my Bible through this year. I haven’t done that for several years and I think it’s time I do it again. I know I’ll read things I don’t remember and will even think I’ve not read them before.
