Catching Up

July 6, 2010


Hey Everyone,

I hope you had a GREAT 4th of July Weekend. I know that I did. I have a very busy week this week. Therefore, I will be quick and straight to the point…

1. Please be in prayer for Eastside’s Youth Group. There are 21 youth & adults in Ridgecrest, NC at mission camp. From all reports they are having a BLAST! They will be back on Friday afternoon. Please pray for their lives to be transformed, a safe trip, and a safe return.

2. Join me in praying for 20 new small group leaders and new small group members. God has laid these prayer requests on my heart. I am fully confident that God will provide these new leaders.

3. Eastside will have our first ever Homecoming event on Sunday, August 8, 2010. We will have a special worship service at 10:30 am then at NOON we will have FREE lunch for everyone. Nelson Benton will be taking a FREE Family Portrait of each family. Rev. Houston Berry, Eastside’s first full-time pastor, will be our guest speaker for that day. Please invite all present and former members back for a day of celebration.

4. If you have any historical pictures that relates to Eastside and/or pictures of former staff members then please give them to Vivian Wallace. They will be returned to you. You can contact Vivian at

5. Eastside’s Elders have made a minor change in our NAME CHANGE voting. We have dropped the name “Connection Community Church” and added “Eastside Community Church.” This minor change is a result of a lot of feedback from our church family. You can go to to vote.

6. Be in prayer for our upcoming mission trip to Guatemala. We have 14 people from Eastside that will be going on this trip.

I love being your pastor. I love what God is doing in our midst. Please contact me if you need anything.

Grace and Peace,

Pastor VG
