Greensburg — Sandcreek Baptist Church

Things continue to be good at the local Baptist Youth Camp. Our campers returned last Sunday tired but excited. Remember to check the “need/request” list and bring your camp donations to the tub in the hallway. There’s always a need for more soda-pop, snacks and cleaning supplies. Remember the leaders and youth in your daily prayers. We will have a special visitor and the church will receive a special recognition on Sunday, June 30th. I know you’ll want to

attend and witness this exciting day in the life of Sandcreek Baptist Church. Reserve the date now and watch for more information next week. I hope you will attend church and Sunday School somewhere this Sunday. Your church, wherever it is, needs your physical and visible support and you need theirs. Your Christian friends look forward to seeing you each

week. Don’t let them down. You’ll receive a blessing from being in attendance. Have a good week and God Bless you and your family.

The Thankful Hearts Adult Sunday School Class will meet in the Fellowship Hall at 9:30 a.m. The lesson, “Worship With Meaning,” will be taken from Isaiah Chapter 29:9-16.

We welcome all to come join in a wonderful time of sharing and learning.
