Church Briefs

Sandcreek Baptist Church

Three cheers for our youth and their conducting of the worship service last Sunday.

Job well done from beginning to end! They will meet again on Sunday at 6 p.m. You are welcome to join them if you are in need of a youth fellowship that is warm and caring. Mark your date-book and plan to attend.

These same youth are sponsoring a pizza/bowling party on May 16 at the local bowling ally. The fun will start at 7 that evening and bowling will be free.

They are welcoming even us older folks to join them. Another date to mark in your date-book.

The Faith Singers will practice at 9 Saturday morning. They are already looking into/for a Christmas cantata. You can be a part of this “musical” group. We do enjoy singing and fellowshipping together.

We’ve been told that there is a Mother’s Day event “in the works.” Will let you know more when something is final.

There is a box in the foyer for your vote on the church T-shirt of your choice. There are several choices so look them all over and submit your vote. You have three weeks to make your choice.

Parents, if your children are considering church camp this year, you can pick up a registration form on the table in the foyer.

Again the Mission Team will pay part of the fee.

Well, the snow pretty well took care of those magnificent magnolia blooms last week. Now, this week it’s the red bud, dogwood, and red crab apple trees that are front and center. Isn’t spring a wonderful time? But I sure hope we escape those springtime storms. Isn’t that just like us? We want the good times but not anything that’s unpleasant or dangerous. I’m sure God hears a lot of prayers requesting safety and health but how often do we say “Thank you” for those beautiful flowering trees, shrubs, and plants?

  • 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
