Church Briefs


Choir practice is every Wednesday, starting at 6 p.m. Each Wednesday, individuals participating in special choir music for the following Sunday meet in the sanctuary and practice chosen songs.

Every other Wednesday evening, from 7 to 8 p.m. in the church annex, an open Bible study is held. Those attending currently are going through the book of Romans. Attendees can read aloud or sit back and listen to others take turns reading The Word. Also, there is a time set aside for special prayer needs and praises.

On scheduled Thursdays and Saturdays, Coffee Cup Devotions, led by Peggy Settles, takes place. Women of the church meet either on scheduled Thursdays at Somethin’s Perkin’ (owned and operated by Bill and Tammy Leak on the square in Greensburg) and share time together while lunching and listening to a member offer a devotion; or on specified Saturday mornings in the church annex for breakfast and a devotion, each time hosted by one of the women of Mt. Moriah.

Mt. Moriah Baptist Church is one of some local churches whose members participate in Celebrate Recovery. Celebrate Recovery is a biblically-based program that helps people overcome their hurts, habits and hang-ups. Meetings are from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. each Friday evening at the Greensburg Wesleyan Family Life Center, located on West Main Street next to Main Street Market.

Anyone wishing to learn more about Mt. Moriah Baptist Church can call Pastor Keith Dover at 812-614-1497. Information submitted by Pamela Jackson-Abel.

UMMMM! Those cinnamon rolls were DELICIOUS.

I Hope you were able to get a pan of them last week. They did have extras for sale. The youth and their sponsors did a wonderful job making them. The profit will help pay for their weekend camping/retreat.

Those same youth will resume their 6 p.m. Sunday evening ABY meetings at the church. Hope you will start back with the goal of attending all of the meetings. I’m sure you will grow in your Christian walk as you fellowship with other Christian youth and adults.

  • 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
