Dear Family & Friends,
On Sunday, I challenged the church family from Isaiah 58:5-11. If you were not in attendance then I would encourage to take a moment and read these verses. These verses talk about how Christians are to feed the hungry and care for the poor. If we do what these verses instruct us to do, then there are some tremendous promises for us (pay attention to verses 10-11). Below are some reminders and very practical ways to be involved in helping the needy.
On Sunday, I challenged the Eastside Family to collect over 1,000 cans of soup for the Madison County Backpack Ministry. This ministry feeds over 200 kids each weekend as food is sent home with children on Friday afternoons in backpacks. We need 500 cans of Vegetable Beef and 500 cans of Ravioli.
Lend Warmeth, Lend a Hand Coat Drive Results:
Over 110 coats were collected by the Eastside Church Family for the homeless of Central Kentucky. We also collected numerous hats, gloves, and scarfs as well. Thank you Eastsiders for your faithfulness in giving.
Youth Minister’s Resignation Letter:
After much thought & prayer I have decided to resign as Youth Ministry Director at Eastside. Three and a half years ago I firmly believe God called me to this ministry and now I firmly believe God is calling me out of this ministry. I would resign for no other reason than God’s calling. I hope that I have fulfilled God’s purpose for my season in this ministry. I am so thankful to God and Eastside for the privilege to have been the youth ministry director. I know God has great plans for Eastside’s Youth Ministry and I look forward to see what God will do next. I would like to thank everyone for their love and support they have given me and my family. I can truly say that we have been and will continue to be blessed by of being part of the Eastside family.
We love you, Dan Robertson and Family
