Sandcreek Baptist Church

First of all I must send “Applause, Applause, Applause” to our youth for our Sunday worship service, and also to our guest speaker, Andrew Douglas.

His informative message is one we all need to consider. Well done, each one of you.

This Sunday, the 19th, is the last day to bring your non-perishable items for the Edna Martin donation tub. The Deacons will meet with pastor Harold at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 22.

This will be our first meeting of the new year so we have a lot of organizing and business to consider. If you hold this office of our church, please plan now to attend.

We will hold our business meeting immediately following the worship service Sunday, the 26th. Please set aside the date to attend and be a part of the decision making of our church.

All annual reports will be due at this time.

The Faith Singers continue to practice at 9 on Saturday morning. We are planning to present an easy Easter cantata.

We need any and all who are willing to join us in singing and practice as we prepare for it, and also our Sunday morning anthems. Please consider being a part of our group.

Our Wednesday evening Bible study resumed on the 15th and will continue on the first and third Wednesdays at Jim and Nancy’s house at 6:30 p.m.

How is your Bible reading going? Haven’t gotten started yet ? It’s okay; there’s still time. I’ve gotten into the book of Exodus and realized the amazing power God gave to Moses through a simple rod that Moses picked up on his journey out of Egypt.

It just shows us that God is truly amazing and can use simple people and things to carry out His message. Are you open to being his messenger? Better be careful and watchful when you’re out picking up sticks this spring. You just might be called to be the next “Moses.”
