Sandcreek Baptist Church

For the next two Sundays, we will be accepting your donations to the America For Christ offering.

Youths are reminded of their Sunday evening practices, at 6 p.m., for the upcoming Easter program.

It is important that you attend these practices and the fellowship that follows.

Ladies, you might be looking for a baby gift as we will be hosting a baby shower in the future. Will give more details at a later time.

Are you wondering about the JPS man? Was he able to make his delivery this past week? The answer is NO! It seems no one wants to accept the cross. He spoke with four women but not one of them would accept it. Each had their own excuse/reason why they didn’t need it or want it. Will he be successful this Sunday?

Won’t you join us, at Sandcreek, for Sunday School at 9 a.m. followed by the traditional worship service at 10 a.m.? Come and see for yourself if he is able to make his delivery. You might even have some suggestions for him.

Please join us for a time of worship, praise and fellowship.

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).
