Church Briefs

Sandcreek Baptist Church

Next Sunday, July 28, will be our next “Sandcreek sing-along Sunday. Hope you will attend and join your voice/voices with the others gathered for worship at 10 a.m. Immediately following the service, we will have a business meeting. Be sure to stay, as we need everyone’s input and ideas so we can make the best decisions to further the business and ministry of our church. You are each an important part of every decision we make. Be sure to stay for this necessary function in our church membership.

The softball team continues to do amazing things on and off the “field.” They not only play ball but they also witness to those around them by sharing their good attitudes with a fun-filled time whether they win or lose. Won’t you come and be a part of this time with our church?

Have you considered the upcoming “week-end” trip that the youth are planning for August 23-25? The sign-up sheet is in the foyer, so you can still get your family together and add your name to the list.

We continue to collect trim and/or $5 to make our “pillowcase” dresses for children and young adults in Africa. Will let you know when we plan to meet at the church to assemble the dresses.

We are re-doing the Prayer and concerns list. As of this week, if you want a name to remain on the list, you should inform the chairman of the deacons or Rita. Otherwise, the name will be removed. We ask that you continue keeping those in prayer who are now on the list.

As I write, the weatherman continues to promise some much needed rain, yet we only get sprinkles and small amounts. I wonder, are you praying for rain AND also carrying your umbrella in preparation for its arrival?

  • 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
