2. Eastside would like to extend a warm welcome to the following new members:

3.As a Church, we have been blessed with a strong Youth Ministry for a number of years now. The Elders and staff can sense that the Youth Ministry will continue to grow even faster in the coming years. With so many wonderful children coming through our preschool and children’s ministries, and considering ongoing outreach efforts in our local schools, we believe that it is a critical area to strengthen in our church.
After many months of prayerful consideration, interviews and discussions, we are very pleased and excited to announce that Billy Edwards will be joining the Eastside Community staff as interim Youth Ministry Leader effective January 1, 2012.
We strongly believe Billy is God’s person for the job and he has the full support of the Elders, staff and Youth Leadership Team.
Billy is a native of Irvine and works for United Postal Service. I would humbly ask each of us to be in prayer for Billy, his wife Monica, and their family, and our thriving Youth Ministry in this exciting addition to the leadership of our church.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day.
Love and Prayers,
