Church Briefs - Dec. 8, 2012

Greensburg — Sandcreek Baptist Church

This Sunday, we will again receive your offering for the Ministers and Missionaries.

We will also be gathering the contents of your Love Gift boxes. Bring your boxes to church Sunday morning and place them on the communion table. Sunday, the 16th, will be the last day we can include them in this year’s offering.

Also, next Sunday afternoon we will meet at Sandcreek, at 3 p.m., to begin our Community Progressive Christmas Celebration with Zion Methodist and Smyrna Lutheran. The afternoon will consist of some fellowship time, the singing of carols and other Christmas presentations.

Our journey will end at Smyrna with a fellowship meal at about 5:30 p.m.

On Dec. 16, during the morning worship service, we will have a Christmas program. If you want to participate with a song, poem, reading, etc., contact a member of the Christian board.

The Youth are planning a caroling party Dec. 22 beginning about 6 p.m. and ending at the church about 8 p.m. with hot chocolate and fellowship. Adults and family members are urged to join in this evening with the young folks of our church.

The Youth are also sorting the Christmas cards you brought for fellow church friends.

Look for yours on the table in the hallway.

If you prefer to send just one greeting to include everyone, there is a bulletin board in that same hallway where you can write a message or post one card for all to read.

Looking toward the end of the month, we will have a communion service Christmas Eve. You’ll want to reserve this date. I will update you later with the time.

I hope you’ll have the opportunity to see our decorated sanctuary after our Hanging of the Greens service last evening.

We had a good meal and great fellowship.

A big thank you to the ladies of the ABWM for the good food.

At this time of year it’s easy to be nice.

Put Christmas in your heart and bring it out at a later time so you can smile and be nice all year-round. Your family, friends and neighbors will appreciate it. You might even get a smile in return. See you in church.
