Welcome to Eastgate SDA Church!
This Weekend! September 22, Pastor Eric Sayler wraps up our series: Families of Faith – “Rebuilding the Altar”
Have you ever broken something Important? Of course you have. Maybe you dropped your laptop, maybe you shattered your grandma’s china, maybe you backed your car into a closed garage door, or maybe you broke your leg playing football.
We’ve all broken important things. Things we have to replace, repair, or rebuild.
This Sabbath we are talking about rebuilding an altar, a place of worship as we conclude our “Families of Faith: Keys for a Grace-filled Home” with a teaching entitled: “Rebuilding the Altar.”
I am looking forward to worshipping with you!
Come at 9:30am and spend an hour with us in bible study in small groups. Children’s age appropriate classes too! Then stay from 10:45am – 12:15pm as we meet in the sanctuary for this special worship service. We look forward to your fellowship!
Next Weekend: A Celebration of Baptisms – three Harmon Teenagers have chosen to be baptized. A Communion Table celebration also. Throw Back Sabbath with Hymns for Praise singing.

Baby William Flerchinger
Can you help with financial support and help to spread the word?
~At Milton-Stateline Adventist School we recently welcomed a new music teacher and her family with excitement into our program. Stefanie Flerchinger has two small children and her son William is 5 months old.
~Early on Sunday morning, baby William was being held by mama and launched himself from her grasp and catapulted to the ground. He smacked his head on the ground while Stefanie did her best to keep him in her arms.
~Williams parents rushed him to the hospital and a CT scan revealed a skull fracture. The baby was life-flighted to Spokane's Sacred Heart Children's Hospital.
~Multiple scans and blood tests were performed and after a night in ICU baby William was released and sent home. They will make the trip back to Spokane in a month to do a follow-up on his recovery.
~As you might imagine, bills for this type of family emergency pool quickly and parents with part-time jobs and in school themselves with a toddler in preschool leaves a daunting financial burden to try to pay for such unexpected expenses.
~We, the would like to try to raise $10,000 for William's family. Please consider reaching into your wallet and if you feel moved to contribute to this sweet family, we know they will be forever thankful.
~We are asking that you keep this family in your prayers, if you don't mind. Having little ones already keeps parents busy all the time so with the added worry of Williams injury, we know they'll appreciate the prayers and love.
~Thank you! Crystal Oltman, 3 & 4 grades teacher and MSAS Family
