Church Briefs

Sandcreek Baptist Church

First I must make a correction in my report of last week. I’m sure there must be a “little restaurant” in the town of Hartsville, however, the ladies of Sandcreek Baptist are going to a

“little tea room/restaurant” in Hope on the 12th of December. Sorry for the confusion.

Activities are once again picking up at Sandcreek as I’m sure they are at your church. The holidays are coming quickly and everyone is hurrying to get things ready and prepared in time.

This next Sunday, Nov. 24, will be the last day to bring your Operation Christmas Child box/boxes to be dedicated.

Following our 10 a.m. traditional worship service we will have our business meeting. All boards and members are urged to attend as this will be the election/approval of the officers for the upcoming year.

Now is the time to order your poinsettias in memory or honor of someone. They will be used to decorate the sanctuary when we have our annual “Hanging of the Greens” service on Dec. 1. See Mary C. if you need to place an order.

The Wednesday night Bible Study group will not meet again until January 14.

The Faith Singers continue their practice on Saturday mornings at 9 a.m. We’re still looking for and expecting new voices. We’ll soon start on Christmas music.

SAVE THE DATE!!!!! On the afternoon of Dec. 8, we will once again be participating in an afternoon of progressive services with neighboring churches. They will include music, possible skits, and maybe surprises along the way. The afternoon will begin at Sandcreek at 3 p.m and “progress” to Zion. From there we will “progress” to Smyrna, about 5 p.m. Following their program we will close with a simple meal and lots of fellowship. We hope you will plan to attend and be a part of each of the services along the way.
