With what are we Filled?

Sunday, Dr. Dale Huff had a very inspiring, challenging and convicting sermon as we seek God’s leadership in the search for a new senior pastor. He challenged us to “grow” during this interim. He shared we must BE: 1) Prayerful (for His will not our own); 2) Faithful (in our Attendance, Service and Giving); 3) Patient…it will take time. Don’t run ahead of God. Dr. Huff’s Scripture passage was Philippians 2:12-13. Consider a portion of this passage.....continue to work out your salvation with … [Read more...]

A Note From Greg

Happy New Year! Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your mind and with all your strength. And love your neighbor as yourself. Matthew 22:37 New Year’s Resolutions: A time for new beginnings and a time we can reinvent ourselves. Maybe one of the things we should strive for this new year is to know God better. There is no doubt we all would love to know Him better. We would all like to know that we are walking in the center of His will. Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord … [Read more...]

A look back & beyond…

2017 is almost over. Christmas will be here in less than a week! We celebrate the Joy & Hope of this season as we look forward to the adventurous days ahead. Simultaneously we pause to remember the events of this past year. For some of you this past year contains milestones for which you are gratefully excited: graduation from high school or college, the birth of a child or a grandchild, a new job, a promotion, happy family gatherings and more. For others reminiscing contains more pain than … [Read more...]

A Note From Greg

Christmas is such a wonderful time of the year! It is a great time to tell people about Jesus. Everything points to Him. From the evergreen representing Eternal life to Holly representing the crown of thorns and death of Jesus. Even the music playing in the background when you shop, often times is about Jesus. It’s an easy thing to say to someone. “I love that song” It reminds me of…..” It is also a great time to invite people to your … [Read more...]

A Note From Dan

Christmas is my favorite time of the year.  It is also the busiest time of the year. From Christmas shopping to Christmas parties many times we are exhausted by the time Christmas day gets here. I hope that this year you will slow down and take time to enjoy the season and Celebrate Christmas. There are many opportunities around church to help you get into the Christmas Spirit and celebrate the true meaning of Christmas in the coming of the Christ Child. On Sunday afternoon at 3:00 PM will … [Read more...]

A Note From Keith

Students – great job! We also want to recognize the many adults who organized, cooked, … [Read more...]

A Note From Greg

How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of them that bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation. Those who say “Your God Reigns” Isaiah 52:7. I want to say a great big thanks to those who helped with the Fall Festival. You were the hands and feet of Christ. You were able to tell people about your church, but better than that, each person participated with the Gospel at least 5 times. One time the complete plan of salvation was presented as the … [Read more...]

A Note From Dan

Change is not easy and is sometimes even considered a “dirty” word. We at Eastern Hills have had our share of change over the past month. Although change causes us to be uncomfortable, it also stretches us and causes us to be more dependent on the Lord to take care of us. It is no different when it comes to our church. We know that God has His hand on Eastern Hills and He has great things in store for us. Thank you for your … [Read more...]

SING! Even if You Think You Can’t!

Recently I have been leading the Sunday night discipleship class entitled: SING!  It is based on the book, SING, by Keith & Kristyn Getty.  Keith and Kristyn are modern day hymn writers. Their most well-known hymn/worship song is IN CHRIST ALONE. The book reminds us that ALL believers are called to SING in corporate worship even if they “think” they can’t.  Ephesians 5:19-20 admonishes us to sing! Speak to one another with psalms, and hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and … [Read more...]
