Church Briefs


The ABWM will meet at the church on the 20th at 7 p.m. We will begin making plans for sewing those pillowcase dresses for the children and young girls in Africa and putting together our Women’s Day program. Remember, you can view the pattern on our website at

The Wednesday night Bible Study will resume at the home of Nancy Sallee on the 21st.

I attended my family reunion last Sunday. It was with those from my mother’s “side of the family.” Somehow, I’ve moved from those of “middle age” to being one of the oldest members in attendance. Sure is a strange but good feeling when there’s no one older than you and lots of youngsters and children playing nearby.

It’s those young ones who will keep any family bond strong and growing, so we adults need to be sure we’re telling the young ones the importance of family and God, sharing our love for them and forming a bond at an early age. I thought of the reunion for the Christian family in Heaven. There will be joy and excitement unlike any we’ve experienced here on Earth. We’ll be welcomed by our Heavenly Father and what a reunion that will be! It’s important that we pass along our faith to those younger than we. Bring them to Sunday School and Church, tell/read them Bible stories, and be a good witness to those around you. Have a good week and start it by going to church.

First Christian Church

First Christian Church welcomes you Sunday to our worship services at 8 a.m. (traditional) and 10:30 a.m. (contemporary) at 425 North Broadway in Greensburg. Sunday School classes begin at 9:30 a.m.

We are excited about our church-wide campaign, “This is Church,” coming in September. This is an eight-week journey to discover God’s design for the church. We’ll start with a tailgate party Sept. 8, from 12:30 to 3 p.m., at the fairgrounds. Small groups and our Wednesday programming, ELEV8, will kick off the week of Sept. 8 to 14. We’ll conclude our journey with a service Sunday, Oct. 20; a week of service in the community leading up to Trunk or Treat Oct. 26, and a celebration of our journey Oct. 27. For more information, or to get involved during our church-wide campaign, call the church office at 663-8488.
