Church Briefs - Jan. 25, 2013


Greensburg — Sandcreek Baptist Church

A reminder to all committees and boards. Your annual reports are due for our upcoming business meeting this Sunday, January 27 immediately following our 10 a.m. worship service.

That evening, at 5 p.m., we will enjoy the postponed “Fifth Sunday,” as offered by the Christian Board. There will be snacks and games to enjoy by all ages.

Don’t forget to support our collection of canned and non-perishable foods for the Edna Martin Center in Indianapolis.

The tub looks good as it already overflows with your generosity.

The Faith Singers will practice at 9 a.m. Saturday morning. We really need your voice to join us as we practice to sing our praises during our traditional worship service. You don’t have to be an accomplished singer.

Just love to sing to and about the Lord and you will be very welcome.

The weatherman is promising colder temperatures than we’ve experienced the past two years. Are you ready? You may have to dig deep in your closet for a warmer coat and/or sweater and scarf when you prepare to go outside.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could just reach in our closet and pull out love and warmth as we need it to make us feel loved? You can feel the love and warmth of our Savior when you attend church and are among friends and family.

We’ll be looking for you and we’ll have an extra warm welcome.


First Presbyterian Church

On Sunday, Jan. 27, the youth will be participating in the Souper Bowl of Caring.

They will be preparing and serving a brunch following worship. A free will offering will be received with the proceeds to be donated to the Bread of Life.

Visitors are welcome to join us for worship and for the brunch in support of the youth and their Souper Bowl of Caring project.  Worship begins at 10:30 a.m.  For any questions, please contact the church office, 663-2197.
