Expanded Bulletin Announcements for Sabbath, May 12, 2018

Welcome to Eastgate SDA Church!
This Weekend!  Pastor Eric, Victory of The Seed
This Sabbath we begin a new series on Scripture promises.  The Bible is full of promises, there are too many to cover in one little sermon series.  But, over the next several weeks we will be exploring some hand-picked, significant promises that bring hope, confidence, and courage to our lives.
I’m looking forward to worshiping with you!
~Pastor Eric
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 Eric
