Welcome to Eastgate SDA Church!
This Weekend! Colin Peterson continues Philippians (4:6,7) Anxiety and Prayer
Many times we are confused and stressed in the frantic whirlwind of this life. There is so much to accomplish, yet so little time. Also, there is always the lingering possibility that some unknown event might happen in the future to ruin all our plans. With all these stressful things going on, forcing our anxiety away even for just a few minutes can be strenuous at least.
It's a good thing that God is capable of taking our burdens upon himself. He promises to give us a peace that is so amazing that we cannot understand it. This week I hope to give some ideas about how we can accept this eternal gift from our heavenly father.
It will be exciting to praise God with you all this Sabbath,
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. Following that will be our Fellowship Dinner, bring something to share!
Next Weekend: Pastor Troy Wallace; Mind of Christ, Philippians 2 & 5
