Church Briefs

Christ Lutheran Mission

Weekly Bible study will resume Wednesday evenings at 6:30, weather permitting. The focus of these studies is to look at the scripture and understand the history of the church and why we worship as we do, as well as the scriptural/historical significance of such worship.

The meetings are held at The Fine Grind, 120 E. Washington Street, Greensburg. Bishop Michael Layne gives you a warm welcome. For more information go to or, call 812-614-2160.

Well, today it looks like all of our accumulated snow and ice is doomed to a “warm-up” and it will be out of here by the weekend.

Then we’ll have spring-like temperatures. You know what they say, “It’s Indiana. Just wait five minutes and it will change.”

Hope all of you have been safe and warm during the past few, anxious days and nights. It was nice to “hear” the quiet from the furnace this morning after several nights of non-stop running to heat our home. We were among the lucky that had power and heat the whole time and I’m very thankful. Probably a good reason to drop some money in my “Love Gift box.”

I must say, this past Sunday was one of the longest days I’ve had in a while. WHAT do you do on a “no church Sunday?” Our favorite sports games of basketball and football were played on Saturday and the TV was full of weather announcements and coverage of surrounding areas. We sat wondering if we’d get all of that predicted snow, but we, around here, were lucky that we missed most of it.

I want to thank those who came out on Saturday to help “undecorate” our church sanctuary and surrounding areas. With so many helpful hands it went quickly. You’ll enjoy our new winter decorations.
