Baptism, Praise Reports, & Prayer Requests

September 12, 2011


Dear E-News Friends,

Last week was an AWESOME week for me. I was able to attend a two-day conference in Post Falls, Idaho at Real Life Ministries. I learned so much and what I learned complimented what we are doing at Eastside.

We had a great kick-off to our new church wide spiritual growth campaign – The Me I Want To Be. If you have not signed up for a small group and/or picked up your book and study guide then there is still time to join a group. See Greg Gillum or contact at or 624-9646.

Baptism: This Sunday (Sept 18th) at 10:50 am we will have a baptism service. If you would like to be baptized then please contact Pastor Virgil at or at 661-5373. Trey Hood and Blake Benton are scheduled to be baptized.
