Sandcreek Baptist Church

What a good day we had last week.

It was not only Father’s Day, but we were informed that it was exactly 192 years ago on that exact date that eight local people got together and decided it was time to form a church and Sandcreek Baptist Church became a reality!

How exciting to be worshipping in a church that had been formed on that exact day so many years ago. Of course it wasn’t the building we now have, but I can’t imagine what the area would have been like back then. I know Greensburg was just becoming a town and the outer area was all farmland.

Roads were mere wagon paths and neighbors and God were very important. Now on to the present. This Sunday, the 22nd, is when we have scheduled a baptism at First Christian Church. It’s not too late for you to be a part of this service. If you’ve been thinking about being baptized this might be the time.
