Greensburg — Church Briefs

Sandcreek Baptist Church

The first thing I want to alert you to is our annual spring change to your clocks.

You will “spring” forward one hour at bedtime Saturday night. Don’t be late for your favorite Sunday School class/lesson and the worship service that follows.

We will again be accepting your donations for the America for Christ offering this Sunday.

Remember my suggestion about shopping/looking for baby gifts? Well, this Sunday you can bring your chosen gift to church for baby boy Wallace.

There will be a “special” table in the hallway where you can place your gift.

As a part of our worship service, the baby will be dedicated. I’m sure you’ll want to be there to share this special time with these new parents and their family.

Are you wondering about the JPS man? Well, as before, he knocked on several doors but found no one to take the delivery of the cross. Of course Peter denied needing it, Pilot didn’t want it, and Judas had his own excuse.

All the JPS man needs is a signature. Will you consider signing for the cross?

Plans are being made for a meal on Maundy Thursday, so we are asking those who are planning to attend to sign the sheet in the hallway so we can plan for everyone.

The Baptist Youth Camp is planning to realize a long time dream but they need our/your help. That dream is to build a swimming pool at the camp.

The amount is huge, but if we work and give together their goal can be reached.

I’ll give more on this in future writings In the meantime you can begin to “lay aside” whatever you feel you can share and watch for the time to give your donation.

As I write, today, we are being told that winter is not going away quietly.

We can expect snow, rain, and possible sleet/freezing rain. Not good. However, as always, the sun will come out and we will feel its warmth again. That warmth is always there, but sometimes other things block it from us. It’s the same with our relationship with God. He’s always there but we allow “other” things to come between us and we become separated for a time. But just like the sun in the sky, the Son in heaven is there waiting for us to clear away the “fog” and come back to Him again. Keep looking for the Son and we’ll look for you on Sunday. Don’t let other things come between you and your attendance in Sunday School and Church.

  • 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
