Welcome to Eastgate SDA Church!
This week we welcome a guest speaker to our pulpit; Jason Worf is a new intern pastor at the Village Church. His message "Have you Forgotten me, God?" is based in Isaiah 50 and answers the question, “What is God doing when I feel like He's far from me?”
Jason and his wife have two small children. He is passionate about the "home mission field"—helping regular Christians be missionaries to their neighbors. Jason loves woodworking, mountain biking, and recently has gotten into rock climbing.
Join us for our Bible Study Time/Sabbath School at 9:30am and our Worship Service at 10:45am – 12:15pm.

"The message of circumcision implies that you can save yourself; as such, it is flattering to human pride. The message of the Cross, however, is offensive to human pride, because we have to acknowledge that we are dependent completely on Christ" ~ from the current Sabbath School Quarterly.
"The Bible assures us that it is not our hold on God that keeps us safe, but the power of Jesus' grip. No one can take us out of his grasp. Once we're in His hands, He will not let go" ~ from the article, "Mr. Fix-It" by Terry Koch in the August 2017 Village Voice.
