Greensburg — St. John’s United Church of Christ, Batesville

Bereavement Support for those who have lost someone is every Thursday until June 13.

The group meets at 6 p.m. at St. John’s United Church of Christ in Batesville.

Sandcreek Baptist Church

Be sure to make plans to attend our business meeting scheduled for Sunday, April 7, immediately following our 10 a.m. traditional service.

It is important that all members are in attendance at this meeting as we need eveyone’s imput and ideas that concern the ongoing ministry of our Sandcreek Baptist Church.

I hope you’re still collecting those aluminum can tabs and adding them to the jar in the hallway. Also, keep looking for Educational bonus points coupons on various cake mixes, soups, cereals, etc. There is also a collection jar for them and they help our local schools.

So, Easter is what?

Don’t lose the excitement of the Easter resurrection. Keep tuned to the promise of spring and all it brings.

Soon we’ll be seeing the color of new blossoms on trees and flowers. They are a reminder of the new life Jesus promised each of His followers. I hope your Easter activities included the attendance of church at some time during the week. Don’t overlook the chance to be there again this Sunday. Whether at Sandcreek or at the church of your choice. Someone will be looking for you somewhere. Don’t let them down.
