Welcome to Eastgate SDA Church!
This Weekend! Pastor Darold Bigger
Conflict, threats, assaults, harassment, and hostility fragment our world, our country, our work places, schools, churches and sometimes even our families. Continuing the pastor’s series on the book of Romans, Sabbath’s text is Romans 12:15--“Rejoice with those who rejoice and mourn with those who mourn.” This advice from the Apostle Paul is relevant to our quest for unity instead of conflict, unity through celebration and sorrow.
~Pastor Darold Bigger
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.
