Welcome to Eastgate SDA Church!
This Weekend! Pastor Eric Sayler
You’ve probably noticed the Blue Mountain Mall…it just might be completed! There have been years of starts, stops, demolition and partial rebuilding. Now rumors of Hobby Lobby are exciting the hearts of crafters across the valley, I hope they aren’t disappointed! It’s easy to lack faith that this project will be completed.
In Philippians, Paul talks about a project: the project that God had started in the Philippians church. But, unlike my doubts in the Blue Mountain Mall, Paul had confidence that this work, this project that God had begun, would be completed. It would be finished. God doesn’t leave things half-built.
This Sabbath we are exploring the second study in our Philippians series: God’s Good Work
I am looking forward to worshiping 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 worship services.
Next Weekend Pastor Eric Sayler
