Welcome to Eastgate SDA Church!
This Weekend! August 18, Carolynn Vickroy and VBX Team
~This week our Vacation Bible Xperience Team will present a review of the week they spent with area children from August 6 through 10!
~We will hear about the focus of the leaders, the statistics of the attenders from some of the kids themselves. Some insider stories from adults and teen leaders. Some of the kids will share with us the theme song for the week, including the motions and the enthusiasm!
~This Sabbath is a sad anniversary of the loss of our young friend and member of our Pastor’s family, Julianna Sayler. She passed away on August 18, 2017 after having battled DIPG (Diffuse Instrinsic Pontine Glioma) a form of brain cancer for nearly nine months. Their family is taking some time to spend together as they grieve this 1st anniversary of this loss.
~In the meantime the rest of us will gather and celebrate the lives of the children who attended our VBX program this year which was called “Cactusville, Where kids are called to follow Jesus!”
~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: . August 25, Pastor Eric Sayler will return with a new message from God’s word!
