Church Briefs


Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we knew the time and day that Christ would return and we could “Save that Date?” Of course, as the Bible tells us, no one, not even Jesus Himself knows that “time and date.” So we just have to be ready and just to be safe maybe we should “Save every Date” for Him. Why not start today and plan to be in church somewhere this Sunday?

First Christian Church

Sunday, Sept. 15

The First Christian Church, 425 North Broadway, Greensburg, welcomes you Sunday to our worship services at 8 a.m. (traditional) and 10:30 a.m. (contemporary). Sunday School classes are at 9:30 am. The community is invited to a Coffee House from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. each Wednesday. This will be a relaxed atmosphere where you can hear the sermon from the previous Sunday while sharing a cup of coffee with others.

We are excited about our church-wide campaign, “This is Church.” This is an eight-week journey to discover God’s design for the church. Small groups have also launched. Our Wednesday program, Elev8, has kicked off as part of “This is Church.” A meal is offered for children and volunteers from 5:45 to 6:15 p.m., and classes for children, junior high youth and adults will run from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Senior high youth will study “This is Church” from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., on Sunday nights. We’ll conclude our journey with a service Sunday, Oct. 20, a week of service in the community leading up to Trunk-or-Treat on October 26, and a celebration of our journey on Oct. 27. For more information or to get involved in a small group or other program during our campaign, call the church office at 663-8488.

The Texas Roadhouse Dinner and Silent Auction to support FCC Adult Mission Projects is from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21., in the Family Life Center. The cost is $15. Meal includes a choice of steak or chicken, potato, green beans, rolls, dessert, ice tea, lemonade and coffee. A child’s hot dog meal is available for $5. Great items will be available for bidding! Call Shelly Walsman at 663-8246 or Cindy Schoettmer at 812-371-6429.
