Sandcreek Baptist Church

This Sunday, Aug. 25, will be our next “Hymn-sing Sunday.”

Hope you have added your requests to the list in the hallway. The Deacons have decided on a change in the order of the service this week. We will begin with the singing of the requested hymns for the first half of the service then hear a message from Pastor Harold and the usual closing invitation and prayer. If you love to sing the old hymns, then Sandcreek is the place to be this Sunday morning at 10 a.m.

We were reminded of an upcoming “family camp” available at our local Baptist Youth Camp over the Labor Day week-end. The church will sponsor two “families.” If you’re interested in

this retreat for you and your family, see Angie or Mark. Or you can call the church office and leave a message at 663-3009.
