Church Briefs


Sunday Evening, Oct. 20

Bible Study will resume at 6p.m., continuing our study on the period of time between the Testaments.

Throughout October is the 2013 World Mission Offering Campaign

First Christian Church

First Christian Church welcomes you to our worship service, “The Huddle,” at 10 a.m. in the Family Life Center, 425 North Broadway, Greensburg. Fellowship breakfast will be served starting at 9 a.m. in the Family Life Center. You are welcome to participate in Service Sunday with a service project if you wish. The community is invited to a Coffee House from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. each Wednesday. This will be a relaxed atmosphere where you can hear the sermon from the previous Sunday while sharing a cup of coffee with others.

We are in our seventh week of “This is Church,” and will be talking about “service” this week. Lessons for children, youth adult Sunday School classes, small groups and ELEV8 classes all follow this same theme. Our church-wide campaign will conclude with a celebration Sunday, Oct. 27. For more information about “This is Church” or to get involved in a class or a small group, call the church office at 812-663-8488.

FCC is participating in Trunk or Treat from 3 to 7 p.m. Oct. 26. This is a community event for children of all ages. Local churches and businesses will be set up on the square with decorated trunks, candy, games, prizes and food. The Kiwanis Club Costume Contest will begin at 5 p.m. This is a free event for the public. If you have any questions or would like to get involved, contact Kelly Belt at 812-663-8488.

Lifeline Screening, “Early Detection is the Key to Prevention,” sponsored by Reid Hospital and Health Care Services will be here Tuesday, Oct. 22, in the Family Life Center. Pre-registration is required. Call 1-888-653-6450.

Due to the overcrowding at our August opening, the Kids’ Closet of Decatur County has been moved to Greensburg City Hall. It will be opened there from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 30. Children from kindergarten through sixth grade will given free clothing. We will be distributing free winter clothing. No papers are required to be filled out.
