Sandcreek Baptist Church

The sanctuary has been prepared for Advent season. We had a wonderful meal and fellowship following our Hanging of the Greens service on Sunday. Now, we hope you'll join us for any/all upcoming events. If not at Sandcreek, then find a church of your choice, and attend Sunday worship. This is the season to be a part of a church family and have fellowship with friends.

Next Sunday, during our traditional 10 a.m. service, the deacons will serve communion. After the service, we'll hold our business meeting. Please plan to attend and give your support/opinions to any of our upcoming projects.

The Faith Singers will practice at 9 a.m., Dec. 3.

Pastor Bob will be in the office on Wednesday and Thursday mornings; you can find us on the web anytime at Our informal Sunday-evening service continues at 6 p.m.

Although it's cold and rainy, I'm sure you can find a church that's warm and friendly. That's what you'll find at Sandcreek Baptist, located on U.S. 421 South. If you drive past during evening hours, look for our lighted nativity overlooking the parking lot.
