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.

A reminder for the youth that they are now meeting at 6 p.m. Sundays.

Set aside this time to fellowship with other youth and hear a Christian message that will help you through the next week.

Bring a friend or two and introduce them to God.

Remember to keep our youth and their adult leaders in prayer as they take part in and enjoy their weekend retreat.

On Saturday, Sept. 7, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the church, Pastor Harold will host a “roast” of Al Doles in “honor” of his 90th birthday. Start now to get your stories ready.

After the “roast,” refreshments will be served.

We’ve had another enjoyable week of nice temperatures and wonderful weather. Better enjoy those flowers and veggies in the garden because the day is coming when they’ll be just a memory. If you look closely, you can see trees that are beginning to shed their leaves and some even turning color. Are we in for an early fall? Only God knows what is ahead for us. Maybe you should check in with Him once in a while. Like at least on Sunday morning in fellowship with other Christians in need of His and your fellowship.

We’ll be looking for you this Sunday. No need to make a reservation. Plenty of free seating up front.
