We would like to remind everyone that there are still openings for the upcoming Walk to Emmaus weekends March 7 to 10 (Men’s) and March 14 to 17 (Women’s). The walks will be held at First Baptist Church and are an exploration of the basics of our faith and how to incorporate them into our daily living. You can find a brief video explaining this weekend event at or visit May God Bless All.

Sandcreek Baptist Church

Youths are reminded to be at the church Sunday evening at 6 p.m. to practice their upcoming Easter skit.

We have been invited to join with Zion for a World Day of Prayer service at 7 p.m. March 1. You will be welcome.

As announced last week, the JPS delivery man did stop at Sandcreek this past Sunday during the worship service. However, he was unable to complete his delivery of a “cross”.

Even though he approached and knocked on three doors, none were willing to accept his “delivery.” I’m sure you’ll want to come at 10 a.m. Sunday to see if he is successful this week. How long will it take him to find someone willing to accept the cross?

Have you added any coins/dollars to your Love Offering Box lately? Surely you have something to be thankful for.

How about the warm days we’ve had that let us know spring is coming? Or how about hearing the birds sing on those warm days? Of course, there are still some very chilly days, but I’m sure if you take the time you’ll find many things to be thankful for. Just let your heart be the judge and add some “blessings” to your “box”.

Sandcreek Baptist is located about three and a half miles south on U.S. 421. Maybe you’ll accept the cross and take it home with you.
