Church Briefs

Sandcreek Baptist Church

One of our most important times will be a part of this Sunday’s worship hour as we have the opportunity to partake of Holy communion when it is passed by the deacons during our 10 a.m. service. I hope you will set aside this day and be a part of this special time together.

Remember, the final time for the Wednesday night Bible study is June 4; it will be the last meeting until fall.

The Faith Singers are also on summer break and will convene again in the fall.

Maybe you can plan now to set aside that time and join your voice with ours. For those who are already choir members please continue to listen to the new CD to get acquainted with the songs in our new book.

The youth have had their “end of the year” party but plan to meet monthly just to stay in touch. Stay tuned for those dates.

Spring training is in session, but there’s still time to sign-up for the church’s softball team. See one of the Starke Girls and give them your name and the position where you play best.

Church camp is right around the corner so don’t forget to pick up a registration form in the hallway and let the youth leaders know that you’re interested.

It was announced that there is a “Primary” camp June 29 July 2 for children in first thru third grade and there is also a need for adult supervisors and helpers during that time. Let the Hamer’s know if you can help or call the camp.

Hope you had a chance to see the “dresses for Africa” that were hanging in the hallway last Sunday. It was reported that the ladies of the ABWM and friends have completed 60 dresses so far.

  • 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
