Church Briefs

Christ Lutheran Mission

This Wednesday’s study group, meeting at 6:30 p.m., will look at, “What is the Eucharist, or The Lord’s Supper?” Do we come to take communion or do we come to receive communion? While some may say it’s just words and the way we say things, it’s important to develop a more-correct mindset of approaching the Lord’s Table. After all, how many meals do we miss at our dining room or kitchen tables? Probably not many, yet we struggle with the idea of dining at the Lord’s Table. This will be a great lesson in soul survival. All are welcome to attend. We meet every Wednesday at The Fine Grind, 120 E. Washington St. More information: http://www.doclayne.com/.

Sandcreek Baptist Church

When you do your grocery shopping this week, remember to purchase a few extra non-perishable items to add to the tub for the Edna Martin Christian Center.

Also, it’s time to pack your box/boxes for Operation Christmas Child. The table in the hallway already has some filled boxes, but we’d like to have many more because the children who receive them are so thankful for simple things we have every day. Remember, if you include bath soap, make sure it’s Ivory so they don’t lose it if they happen to drop it in the stream or lake where they’re bathing.

The ladies of the church are planning a Christmas outing and lunch at the little restaurant in Hartsville on Dec. 12. If you’d like to join us, let Barb or Dianna know.

The Faith Singers will continue to meet for practice at 9 a.m., on Saturday mornings. We hope you’ll join us as we’re enjoying the new music and hope to be ready to present a song from it in the near future.
