The Bear Creek Church held and open house from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday.

The Bear Creek Church is located next to the Bear Creek Cemetery on County Road V-71/Brandon Blacktop, about 3 1/2 miles from either south of Brandon or north of Hwy. 150.

The committee in charge holds various fund raising events to preserve the church building.

At this event there were complimentary refreshments, a gift basket silent auction, and door prizes drawn every half hour as well as donations collected.

Bear Creek Church is one of the few remaining country churches in the county, and is a great place to find the neighbors visiting and reminiscing about life.

Another Christmas in the country.

Proceeds collected at the open house will go toward the upkeep of the Bear Creek Church.
