Church Briefs - March 8, 2013


Greensburg — Liberty Baptist Church

Daylight Savings Time begins at 2 a.m. Sunday morning. Please remember to set your clock forward one hour Saturday night.

The Thankful Hearts Adult Sunday School Class will meet in the fellowship hall at 9:30 a.m. We welcome all to come join in this wonderful time of sharing and learning.

Church service will be at 10:30 a.m. in the sanctuary with Interim Pastor Robert “Bob” Leitgabel bringing the message: “Encourage Others to Be More Than They Can Be on Their Own.” This week’s sermon will be taken from Titus Chapter 2. Please join us for a time of worship, praise and fellowship.

Part 2 of the Bible mini-series will be on the History Channel at 8 p.m. Sunday, March 10.

We would like to remind everyone that there are still openings for the upcoming Walk to Emmaus weekends March 7 to 10 (men’s) and March 14 to 17 (women’s). The walks will be held at First Baptist Church and are an exploration of the basics of our faith and how to incorporate them into our daily living.

You can find a brief video explaining this weekend event at or visit

Tickets are still available for the trip to the Cincinnati History Museum on Saturday, March 30, to see the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit. Tickets are $19. If you would like to see this exhibit, a sign up sheet will on the back table at the church, or you may contact Pastor Leitgabel at 812-614-2977 for more information.

Throughout the month of March, we will be doing the 2013 America for Christ offering. Information and envelopes for this offering are on the back table at the church.

On March 31, anyone interested may participate in the Thirty Pieces of Silver offering. If interested in participating, collect 30 coins (quarters, dimes, nickels, half-dollars, silver dollars) in a sandwich baggie. On Easter morning, these will be collected or placed on the table in front of the Sanctuary. The use for the money collected will be determined at the next quarterly business meeting. May God bless all.
