Greensburg United Methodist

Come worship with us on July 28 at our “Worship on the Green” service. At 8:15 a.m., early-service worshippers will gather in the sanctuary as usual. At our 10:30 a.m. worship service, we’ll be “worshipping on the green.” We’ll gather on the side lawn for a time of worship and praise. Come celebrate Creation with us! Limited seating will be provided, but bring lawn chairs if you have them. Bring a well-filled picnic basket to share with others in the Social Hall following the 10:30 service.

Sandcreek Baptist Church

We continue to send youth and adults to our local Baptist Youth Camp and ask you to keep them in your prayers. Pray that they come closer to God that during their time at the camp and will keep Him as part of their daily lives.

The ladies of the ABWM have taken on a mission project of making “pillowcase” dresses for children and young ladies in Haiti. If you want to help, you can donate $5 to cover the cost of purchasing trim and fabric, or you can donate 1.5 yards of cotton fabric, any rick rack, lace, bias tape or other trim. We’ll assemble the dresses at a later time and will keep you informed, as we’ll need help with sewing. If you want to donate, you can bring your items to the church or give your money to Dianna, and she’ll purchase any needed items to help complete the project.
