Church Briefs


If you’re appreciating all of these occasional showers or light sprinkles, add some cash to your Love gift box. Our last Baptist Observer reported that the Love gift giving is down compared to last year at this time. We’ve been blessed in so many ways. Won’t you consider an additional Love offering for your box?

Well, this past Sunday was very special with State Rep. Randy Frye and his wife as our guests. As I wrote last week, he was there to honor Sandcreek and those past members who were instrumental in founding our congregation. He read portions of his proposed “resolution” as passed by the state assembly. A framed copy of the “resolution” will be hung in the entryway of the church. The name of Sandcreek Baptist Church will not only be a wonderful memory in our lives and those of future members,but it will be forever recorded in the archives of our state government.

Pictures were taken so check our website. They should appear soon.

Sometimes it doesn’t take much to excite us, so just imagine how excited God must be when we show up at church to worship Him with all the other Christians who are there with us. It must be like when our family gets together around the table to celebrate a birthday or anniversary. He celebrates every time we spend time with Him.

Don’t miss an opportunity to please Him and make Him smile. See you in church. Do I need to save one or two seats?
