Welcome to Eastgate SDA Church!
This Sabbath Pastor Eric will continue his series on Christian Community Life dealing with the issue of Hypocrisy in Love.
Pastor Eric writes, “Are you a workaholic? Do you feel guilty when you are not “doing?” Yeah, me too sometimes. Join me this Sabbath as we study a text that might push us into that mindset and discover that both Paul and God might have had something else in mind! If you want a head-start feel free to spend some time with Romans 12:11.”
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.
