Dear Friends,

1. Mission Luncheon – this Sunday at 12:15 pm at Eastside. Menu: Beef Brisket, hot dogs, corn, green beans, salad, biscuits, dessert, and drinks. 100% of the proceeds will go to the Madison County Backpack Program which feeds children over the weekend. If you are going to attend please email Sherrie Green and let her know you are coming (if you haven’t already signed up) at church@nulleastside-baptist.com

Volunteers are needed for the upcoming Noah’s Ark Consignment Sale. Many new faces will visit our church over this week, providing an awesome opportunity for small group leaders/elders/church staff/members to minister to those who will be coming into our church building!

4. Sponsors needed for Prince of Peace Girls in Guatemala

Eastside is teaming up with First Baptist and Vineyard in Richmond to sponsors Christmas for the 52 girls in Guatemala. At Eastside we need a total of 52 sponsors at $25.00 each. Once the money is collected then some ladies from these 3 churches will fly to Guatemala and go Christmas shopping for these girls with the money we donated. We need your help. To sponsor a girl please contact Amy Collins at amycollinss@nullaol.com or at 979-1962.
