Church Briefs

(Continued)

The Faith Singers plan to practice this Saturday at 9 a.m. The weather should be good. Hope you’ll join your voice with ours so we can sing praises to God on Sunday morning. I’m considering an Easter cantata so we’ll need all the voices we can find.

Don’t forget to continue to bring items of non-perishable food for the Edna Martin Center. The tub is located in the hallway. Now, how about you Bible reading?

Have you gotten started or are you still thinking about it? I’ve gotten a good start, but I know I’m going to have to re-read a portion because I can’t seem to get the “good guys” and the “bad guys” straight.

When you get to those strange names don’t let them discourage you. Try to look for some that are familiar, but don’t struggle trying to pronounce them. I’m lucky that my Bible has special markings to help with that.

Now, as I close this morning, I’m encouraging you to continue reading and pray for those around you and our country. Hope to see you out on Sunday. If not at Sandcreek, then go to the church of your choice. But GO!!!!!

First Christian Church

Sunday, Jan. 12, 2014

As we begin the new year, First Christian Church welcomes you this Sunday to our worship services at 8 a.m. (traditional) and 10:30 a.m. (contemporary), 425 North Broadway, Greensburg. Sunday School classes are at 9:30 a.m.

The Story, starting this Sunday, takes specific selections from the NIV scriptures and places them in chronological order so the reader can better understand God’s story and how our story intersects with it. Each week, sermons and lessons will revolve around one chapter from the book. You won’t want to miss out on reading along with us! Participant books are recommended so you can read along with each lesson. The following books are available at christianbook.com: The story for Adults, The Story for Teens (Jr/Sr High), The Story for Kids (3rd-5th grade), The Story for Children (K-2nd grade), The Story for Little Ones (Preschool).
