What’s Happening This Week – June 30th, 2013

Join us next Sunday at 11am as we continue our Upside Down Kingdom series. This series explores Jesus’ teaching on the Sermon on the Mount. Our Summer Intern and Pastor of Arts, Tyler Jackson will look at Matthew 6:9-15 and the Lord’s Prayer. Don’t forget that if you’ve missed any sermons, you can catch up with our podcasts or sermon videos.

Weekly Prayer/Running Group // Fridays at 6:30 a.m. // Days/times flexible depending on interest // We will meet outside the church for a prayer followed by a light jog through the neighborhood // Email Justin Barnes for more info justinrobertbarnes@gmail.com.

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.

Growth groups (small groups) are the way we connect more intimately with each other at Eastside. If you’re interested in learning more about joining a Growth Group please contact Trent Lloyd – trent@eastsideatl.org.

Ways to Connect, Grow, & Serve Together

BACK TO SCHOOL BACKPACK DRIVE // For the children at The Villages of East Lake // Our goal is to provide 25 backpacks & at least 10 volunteers to assist in the distribution of backpacks // Please bring backpacks & supplies to the church by Sunday July 28th.  // Supplies include: Backpacks appropriate for any school age child preschool – high school, 5 folders per backpack, pencils, erasers, pens, crayons, colored pencils, pack of wide rule paper, 2 Spiral notebooks, ruler. Contact Josh Westover at josh@eastsideatl.org for more info about volunteering or providing backpacks.

We always need help on Thursday evenings from 6:30-7:30 to clean the church in preparation for worship. There is a sign up sheet at the information table for those able to contribute. This is an easy way to serve as well as to get connected with others in the church.

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!
