Winterfest is Approaching
On February 19, 2016, a group of 55 chaperones and teens will be boarding a chartered bus to Gatlinburg, TN, to attend “Winterfest”, an annual youth rally of at least 12,000 teens from across the United States. It will last from Friday through Sunday, so those attending will not be at service on February 21. You can view pictures of past trips on the “Teen” tab under “Photos.” This annual trip has served to provide great inspiration for not only our teens, but our chaperones as well. Please pray that God will work on the hearts of all those attending and that spiritual growth and spiritual maturity will flourish.
Eastside Quartet Records With Keith Lancaster
The Eastside quartet of Amy Prestridge, Kelly Wilkinson, Dennis Piety and Jeff Griggs were one of 25 quartets from across the nation to participate in recording Keith Lancaster's CD, "Mighty God" in Amarillo, TX in April, 2013. They also traveled to Lebanon, TN on July 9-11, 2015, to record Keith's new CD that is to include 25 traditional hymns. Keith asked Amy to lead the soprano section rehearsals. The name of this CD is scheduled to be named "Savior God". We are very proud of this group for representing Eastside so well. Congratulations Gang!
Scripture of the Week
"For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing." (I John 3:1-3)
