Expanded Bulletin Announcements for Sabbath, May 19, 2018

Welcome to Eastgate SDA Church!
This Weekend!  Pastor Eric; “Abram’s Promise”, Genesis 12:2
One of the powerful experiences of Scripture is God’s call on Abram’s life and His promise to make Abram a great nation with descendants as numerous as the stars of the night sky and sand of the sea.  This promise was essential to the Jewish identity and experience through the time of Christ and still impacts the modern Jewish view of themselves and many Christians’ view of the nation of Israel.
This week we continue our study of Scripture Promises as we explore this promise that God made to Abraham that he would be the father of a great nation and how it might impact our lives as followers of God.
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 Sayler continues the Promise Series

Washington Conference Camp Meeting – Auburn, Washington
Living Generously – Sharing Faithfully:  June 15-23, 2018.  Held on the campus of Auburn Adventist Academy.
A festival of faith, a gathering of hope, atime of spiritual growth and renewal.  Camp meetings hold a lot of tradition in the Seventh-day Adventist Church.  This is when faithful followers of the Advent hope gather to worship, to share faith, to grow in their Bible understanding, and to find encouragement for living generously and sharing faithfully.
Right here in western Washington, camp meetings trace back to 1886 when a handful of Seattle area Sabbath keepers held their first camp meeting in this region.  This annual time of encouragement continues today.
This might be your first time at Washington Adventist Camp Meeting, or an annual tradition in your family for the past 50 years or more.  Through your camp meeting experience, may you be inspired to live and share generously the hope and wholeness that Jesus offers us!
