What an awesome worship gathering we had yesterday. 350 people in attendance. WOW! I don’t know about you but DANG the SPIRIT OF GOD was everywhere. What a way to conclude our three week sermon series: RESOLVE!
I want to thank everyone who gave to the relief efforts in Haiti. Given to Date: $3,059.25. Way to go, Eastside. I will be making some recommendations to Eastside’s Business Administration Team on some possibility organizations which we can send these funds. Will let you know what they decide.
Got Baptism? Eastside will have a baptism service on Sunday, January 31, 2010 at 10:50 a.m. If you are interested in getting baptized then please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
