Church Briefs

Sandcreek Baptist Church

It was so good to be back in church on Sunday. Oops! Did you miss it because you forgot to turn your clock back on Saturday night? Sorry, I guess I forgot to remind you last week.

The Faith Singers will practice again on Saturday at 9. Remember, we’re preparing an Easter cantata and we need lots of voices. Please consider joining us for this wonderful, musical story of Easter.

The youth are also preparing some special Easter music and need people and voices. They meet at 6 p.m. on Sunday evening. Think about joining them for fellowship and practice.

Because of the cancellation of church last week, we are extending the collection for the America for Christ offering another week.

We had a return visit from the JPS man this past Sunday. No, it’s not the “UPS” man, but his job is very similar. Remember, he came to visit us last year, on several Sundays before Easter trying to deliver some sort of package. Well, this year he’s trying to deliver a “crown” of some sort. He knocked on at least three doors this past week, but no one would accept it.

Since we couldn’t see in the box, we have to wonder just what kind of crown it is. Is it a simple crown or one studded with diamonds and lots of jewels? Maybe you’d like to come on Sunday morning and see for yourself.

He’ll be back again next week with several others to help present his problem of trying to deliver the plain, unaddressed, unmarked package. Who will claim it? Come and see for yourself. You just might want that “up front” seat we’ll be saving for you.

Sandcreek is located about 3.5 miles southeast of Greensburg on US 421. We’re the brick church sitting on top of the hill. Sunday School is at 9 a.m. and our traditional worship service begins at 10 a.m.

  • 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
