Greensburg — Church Briefs

Sandcreek Baptist Church

This Sunday is Father’s Day and we at Sandcreek, will honor our fathers with a breakfast at 8 a.m. So ladies, be sure to get your “fella” up and ready in time.

Don’t want him to miss the food and fellowship that will lead right into our Sunday School hour at 9 a.m. and traditional worship service at 10 a.m.

A correction from last week is that the Wednesday night Bible Study will not meet again until JULY 10, not June as was incorrectly reported last week.

Remember our campers as they attend camp and get acquainted with God and other Christian young people. The tub is still in the hallway awaiting any donations of soda pop or other camp requests. For ideas you can check the list posted above the collection tub.

How about this weather? Can it get any better? God is really being good to us and we really may not deserve it. Few of us do. Just enjoy every day that He gives you and please, don’t forget to tell Him “Thank you”. Hope to see you at church Sunday. I’ll save you a seat up front with me.

Liberty Baptist Church

The Thankful Hearts Adult Sunday School Class will meet in the Fellowship Hall at 9:30 a.m.

We wish all of our fathers and grandfathers, a very special day as we honor them on this Father’s Day. May God bless each of them abundantly.
