Welcome to Eastgate SDA Church!

Lee will present a message in music with the theme, “The King Dreams” & “the Lamb Wins”. This also happens to be the title of two albums the collective has created which are based on the themes found in Daniel & Revelation.
We look forward to this unique presentation. If however, you are unable to attend because you are in the Spokane area for the weekend, please see the note below.
