The power of God has the strength to sustain us

What a joy it is to say hello to each of you today; it’s a beautiful day, not windy and cool, just right enough to enjoy and I trust that each of you had a great weekend and the beginning of one of my favorite months of the year. A good time in church, some joy and some sorrow, but still happy to be in God’s house as Butch brought his message to us. He talked to us from Ephesians 4:17-24, “Breaking Sin’s Grip”. Today it seems as if sin …

Cold now but soon we’ll be complaining about the heat

Editor Sugar Creek News 0 Comments

I was right it is just down right cold this morning and I think there’s more to come but before we know it some will be complaining about the heat. Last week was so nice and James really did get a lot of cleaning up outside, even cut a tree or two down and got our little garden spot ready to plant. He does love to work outside and it does keep this 85-year-old man going. Such a good crowd at church and with several families of visitors. Love to …

As we go into the Easter season, remember the reason

Editor Sugar Creek News 0 Comments

Our days are so beautiful and the flowers are so pretty, I keep asking myself when will this end?  And I think it will.   I think we’ll at least get some more cold weather, but anyhow it’s been so good. Always I look forward to the sermons that come from Butch’s Mouth and Sunday I double enjoyed it coming from Mark 9 and entitling his message “Some Identity Please.”   This question was asked, “Is He worthy?” and my answer is yes always make sure you know whom you serve. Here we …

Lots of “action” happening in April, festivals, fund raisers and more

Editor Sugar Creek News 0 Comments

What a beautiful day this Monday is, as was yesterday, the Lord’s Day. Is spring close by or do you think more winter is to come?  I think we will have a little more cold weather. James has the fever. He’s really working in our yards and he does enjoy it so much; hard to believe he’ll soon be 86. Thankful for a good day on Sunday with a good message and a good crowd. Our Sunday school attendance was back up and that pleases me; so good to see …

Hey, Happy Leap Year Day to you! How many of you have a birthday on February 29th? Nice day here today, nippy but not cold and the sun is shining. After a great weekend I can truly say I’m thankful to be alive on this beautiful day. I woke up and I can walk across the floor without help. I always think of those who cannot do this and then I realize just how much I have to be thankful for. I can even say that not a lot of …

Sugar Creek Baptist will sponsor a gospel singing

Editor Sugar Creek News 0 Comments

A little rainy and dreary here this Monday morning, but hey, aren’t we happy to still be alive with all that’s going on in the world today, we never know what tomorrow will bring. We had a warm time in our service on Sunday, even with several families out of town with sick ones and deaths, or just for pleasure we still had a great meeting.   Butch brought his message from John 18: 31-38, “How do we know the truth?”   How do we know? Who is not telling the truth?  …

Nothing especially ‘Super’ about the ‘Super Bowl’

Editor Sugar Creek News 0 Comments

Every one is talking about the Super Bowl! Why do they call it the “Super Bowl”?   Of course I’m not a big football fan but I didn’t see anything especially super and I know I will get a lot of boo’s from that, but most of all I feel for my Carolina family that was let down; and to think the Falcons Is the only team that beat this team. Oh well, enough of that. What beautiful cold weather we are having now this is just a little touch of what winter should …

Sickness this time of year

Editor Sugar Creek News 0 Comments

Did each of you survive the “great snow storm of 2016?” I know there are areas that did get heavy snow but it almost skipped over us completely and completely. I would love to have a little snow but I don’t want the ice that usually comes with it. I don’t have much to write about as I’m still not well and was not able to attend church on Sunday and how I miss that. But I have heard a little that was going on around about. I heard we …

Starting off a new year

Editor Sugar Creek News 0 Comments

Happy New Year to each of my readers. To tell the truth, I don’t know if I have written this year or not. This one started off rough with me and some health problems, and I’ve had so many prayers going up for me, and I do have confidence. Winter has arrived! Some really cold days, therefore I have not been able to be out, even to attend church. I think I missed three Sunday’s and so happy to be back these last two weeks. We’ve had a lot of …

Where Did 2015 Go?

Editor Sugar Creek News 0 Comments

I trust that you all had a great Christmas spent with your loved ones and now, almost 2016, looking forward to the New Year and what it might bring. I ask myself, “where did 2015 go?” I’m also asking when are we having “winter”. I don’t have too much to say this week but felt like I needed to write a little. I didn’t get to attend church services today and I have been miserable and miserable I do not like. I heard we have several of our congregation out …

‘Why can’t every day be like Christmas?’

Editor Sugar Creek News 0 Comments

Why can’t every day be like Christmas?   It has been a wonderful weekend in the Buice household filled with love and blessings as my family gathered for our family Christmas. Our house was full to the brim and enjoyed every minute of it. I want to thank each member of our family for being here and making this a perfect kind of Christmas celebration with our Lord in the middle of it all.   Such love and joy AND FOOD, was freely flowing. That all began on Friday night then comes Sunday …

Not a beautiful day, drizzly, but how can we complain when the weather has been so beautiful especially for December. I thank you Lord for the weather changes you send us, and I thank you for today.. If my Mama was still living we would be celebrating her birthday today……I miss her every day as do so many of you my age that have lost your loving parents. Sunday was a beautiful day…..a good crowd present to hear the beautiful sermon as Butch took his message from Luke 2…..” A …

‘Greatness is serving the lost’

Editor Sugar Creek News 0 Comments

Pearl Harbor Day today, Monday, also today makes 59 years I’ve been married to this old guy I live with. Where did the time go? Beautiful day today, not a typical December day and thankful for it. Sunday was also a blessed and beautiful day, with a nice crowd. Butch took his message from Mark 2:13-17, “A Scandal”. We all know hypocrites, especially those claiming to be spiritual. Jesus left and found those that were sick or insane. Mark wrote to let us know how He could be depended on. …

A Portrait of Greatness

Oh my goodness by the time you read this we will already be into December and Christmas just around the corner. I’m still asking “where did this year go?” And what a beautiful weekend this has been for Thanksgiving to share and enjoy our loved ones and eat all that delicious food or that’s the way it was here at our house, a full weekend and I am so thankful that all that came surely enjoyed our family fellowship. Sunday also was warm and beautiful inside with a heart touching …

Always give with the right attitude of what you can

I don’t know what happened last week Patrick said he did not get my news so some of this will flow over from last week. I’m so tired of discussing the weather so I won’t do that this week. I hope all my readers had a great week and I missed being with you last week. But I have a good excuse. I had a last minute chance to go see my three-month-old great grandson and I could not turn down this opportunity as I had not met him and …

Chilly but that sun makes up for it

Editor Sugar Creek News 0 Comments

Wow! Where does the months go? Here we are, already over half of October gone. I guess times does fly when you get old like me but the weather has been so nice and comfortable lately. Chilly but that sun makes up for it. Enjoyed our Sunday School and worship service on Sunday, I always do. I love my church and I love my Lord. I would love to see our churches packed with believing true Christians again. I wonder sometimes what our future holds. Before I begin, please stop …

Would you just look out at that beautiful sunshiney day. Of course by the time you read this it may be raining again. Our weather is so unpredictable but I’m just so thankful we do have both the rains and the sunshine. Only God can do that for us. We had a good time on Sunday. With school being out we had some out of town for a family time together but it was still so good to be in the house of God. Before the worship service, we observed Pastor Appreciation …

Not too bad for a Lord’s day

Editor Sugar Creek News 0 Comments

It’s raining again. Thank you Lord, we’ve enjoy the showers so much but now we are all ready to see a little sunshine and God bless all those that have had very severe weather and flooding. Not too bad for a Lord’s day on Sunday. A good day to stay in and nap. In fact we’ve had a lot of those lately. Missed writing last week. Did not have much news so I’ll try to make up for it this week. Not too much going on with the weather being …

Not much going on this week of interest

Editor Sugar Creek News 0 Comments

I know most of you are enjoying this little change in our weather pattern. And it does feel good. James is so cold natured since his open heart surgery that he’s even turned on the heat a couple of times. I’m not ready for that yet. A good day on Sunday with a good crowd and visitors. “Ten words to describe God.” Butch’s message taken from Exodux 20: 3-17. Yes, what could be more powerful than to study the Ten Commandments? Don’t miss out on the mercies of God. He …

Our first chilly morning

I don’t know when I’ve had such a busy month. When I look at my calendar I wonder how I’m going to get all these events taken care of. This last week we buried our brother in Christ, Charles Hamilton, followed by a dinner afterwards for the family and friends. I want to say thank you to all our ladies in our congregation who so graciously gave their time to making this dinner good for this family, especially to those not of our church family that sent food, it was so …
