What’s Happening This Week – August 4th, 2013

Join us next Sunday at 11am as we continue our Upside Down Kingdom series. In this series, we’re engaging Jesus’ challenging, difficult, and surprising teaching on the Sermon on the Mount. Our Lead Pastor Timothy Lloyd will explore Matthew 7:7-11: “Ask, Seek, Knock”. Don’t forget that if you’ve missed any sermons, you can catch up with our podcasts or sermon videos.

BACK TO SCHOOL BACKPACK DRIVE // Thanks to everyone who donated backpacks and supplies! We provided over 50 backpacks for the kids at the Villages of East Lake!

Weekly Prayer/Running Group // Thursdays at 6:30 a.m. // We will meet outside the church for a prayer followed by a light jog through the neighborhood // Email Justin Barnes for more info [email protected].

Pre-service prayer – 10am every Sunday before church we have an informal time of prayer in the prayer corner. This is a time when we intentionally pray for the church, its growth, and existence. Consider joining in this time of prayer for the church and centering before worship.

Invite your friends // The number one reason people come to a new church is because someone invites them. Consider telling a neighbor, friend, family member, or co-worker why you love Eastside & invite them to worship with you this coming week!
