Church Briefs


Sandcreek Baptist Church

Well, this is the week! Our annual fall Soup Supper! Hope you’re planning to attend. It’s this Saturday, Oct. 26, and we’ll be ready to fill your soup bowl from 4 to 8 p.m., if you’re busy and have to eat late. We’ll even have a carry-out if you need that.

This is the first time for our youth to be in charge, so come out and support them as they work for the proceeds that will then be used for their upcoming outings and programs. We’ll have the usual Chili, Bean, and Potato, plus some new ones. I’m sure you’ll want to try them all along with a piece of homemade pie and a cup of coffee or a glass of iced tea or milk. We’ll accept your Freewill Offering and serve you upstairs or downstairs in our basement. We’re looking forward to seeing our regular attenders along with new ones we’ve yet to meet.

We will have a guest Gideon speaker for our morning service this coming Sunday. Plan to attend and give them your support. They are a worthy group working in our place. The Faith Singers will continue to meet on Saturday morning at 9 a.m. for practice.

Hope you’ll make it this week. We still need your voice added to those already coming. The men’s brotherhood will meet at Burney Baptist Nov. 7 at 6 p.m. Randy Ollis will be the speaker. Reservations are needed by Nov. 4. You can call 663-7314 to let them know you’ll be eating with them.

As I’ve mentioned before, the Edna Martin “tub” is in need of non-perishable items ASAP. Just pick up a few extra cans of veggies or soup, when you shop, and add them to the tub located in the church hallway. And you can begin now to shop for Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes. Remember that school supplies and personal hygiene products are always in need. No liquids or “war” related items are accepted.

  • We could learn a lesson from rodeo: Either let go...or be dragged A friend who has some experience with rodeo horses sent me a most picturesque proverb: “Let go or be dragged.” Whether this phrase was first spoken by a Zen master who had achieved enlightenment on the mountainside, or by a battered cowboy nursing hi

  • Poverty has its advantages I must confess to a severe case of poverty. I never took a vow of poverty; it just seems to have worked out that way for me. I am so poor the church mice have packed their bags and moved on. If I knew where they moved to, I might join them.Being poor
