Sandcreek Baptist Church

Now do you believe me? Doesn’t it seem more and more like fall is just around the corner? As I write this, it is cool enough to require a light sweater or jacket. Don’t want to think about “Ole Man Winter” just around the corner. Seems like we’re “rounding those corners” faster and faster each day. That means we just need to be sure we’re doing our best to be a good witness each day. Our days go so quickly we must always be ready to speak up and share our Faith.

One way you can share your Faith is by telling/reading a story with our children during the 10 a.m. traditional worship service. They all eagerly look forward to gathering down front to hear those stories that help them learn about God and discover ways they/we can try to live a good life for Him. Of course they also enjoy an occasional

small “treat” if it happens to go along with the story.

You could also sign up to be a greeter and share your smile and a warm hand shake as people come into our church.

Hand them a bulletin and tell them you’re glad they came to share the morning with us. Think about it. The sign up sheet and a pen are on the table in the hallway just outside the sanctuary.

Don’t forget about the “Roast” for Al Doles Saturday, Sept. 7, at the church, from 2 to 4 p.m. Hope you have a good “Al” story to share with us. It’s time to be thinking about the Faith Singers returning to share their voices during the morning worship service. If you’re interested and ready to join them, please meet at the front of the sanctuary, right after the morning

service this Sunday. If you’ve been thinking about joining us, this is the time to step forward. We meet for practice Saturday mornings at 9 a.m. Won’t you seriously consider sharing your musical witness and God-given talent with our church?

Hope you’ve had a good day and we’ll look forward to greeting you at Sandcreek on Sunday. Sunday school is at 9 a.m. and our traditional worship service is at 10 a.m. No reservations needed. Bring as many as you can.
