Church Briefs


Are you? Don’t know? Well, maybe it’s time you go to a church and find out. We’ll certainly try to help you find your answer if you come to Sandcreek on Sunday morning. Or you can call the church office and leave a message for the pastor, and he’ll be sure to answer and is willing to talk with you. That number is 812-663-3009. Or you can call him personally at 207-449-9377. Hope your week is safe and blessed. We’ll be looking for you on Sunday morning.

Christ Lutheran Mission

“Come Thirsty” is the title of the study we are offering Wednesday evenings at 6:30. Our lesson this week will be: “Choosing Peace,” and the passage is: “You cannot add any time to your life by worrying about it.” Matthew 6:27. We will consider: Are you a backseat driver? Do you like to maintain control of your life? Are you a self-reliant, independent person? How do these tendencies work against living a life of faith in God’s ability to take care of you? We meet at The Fine Grind, 120 East Washington Street, Greensburg. Call 614-2160 or 662-5154 for more information.

Martin Luther Comes to St. John’s

Martin Luther will be celebrating his 530th birthday at St. John’s Lutheran Church, Napoleon, Nov. 10, with the assistance of Rev. Dr. Michael Layne and Pastor Jennifer Owen. The community is invited to attend this uplifting, spiritual service. There will also be special music provided by Pat Hicks, Jane Link, and Darlene Volk before and during the service, featuring the harp, harpsichord, and violin.

Luther wrote and nailed the celebrated document, “The 95 Theses,” to the door of the Wittenberg Castle church. The centralized theme of “justification by faith” and “the Bible is the central religious authority” permeated throughout the religious reformation and excommunicated him from the Catholic Church.
