A quarterly business meeting will follow the church service.

Please join us as we worship and give praise to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. May God bless everyone.

Sandcreek Baptist Church

This Sunday, the youth will return to their Sunday night meetings.

Hope you will join them and bring a friend or two.

A reminder that the church boards and committees need to prepare their annual reports for the upcoming business meeting the last Sunday in January.

Won’t you consider signing up to be a greeter or to offer a short story to the children during the worship service? You can sign up on the sheet in the hallway.

We are still collecting non-perishable food items for the Edna Martin Christian Center in Indianapolis. The tub is filling more each Sunday. This will continue through the month of January. Dianna

says she will also accept cash and do the shopping for you.

The weatherman promises warmer temperatures for this weekend, and that means the end of the accumulated snow that seems to be everywhere. And speaking of “everywhere,” don’t forget that God is EVERYWHERE and always available when you need Him. He is your closest friend and will be there whenever you just want or need to talk to Him. He’s especially easy to find when you’re attending church somewhere on Sunday, so we’ll be looking for you at Sandcreek.

Sunday School is at 9 a.m. and the worship service follows at 10 a.m. We’re just a short distance south on U.S. 421.

Decatur County Family YMCA

Decatur County Family YMCA will host a “Guy’s Night” Bible study session at 7 p.m. Tuesdays. The session will be led by Jon Hower. Come join us for fellowship and fun!
