Eastside, Thank you! You provided a safe, healthy, spiritual site to honor “Mimi” and the Bowden family. The love of the East Side family is deeply appreciated. The lunch time together and food served by “the workers” is deeply appreciated. May His message be heard and our actions be seen to continue telling “Mimi” stories and her love for Jesus.

Our needs for the Food Pantry have changed due to the COVID 19 situation. Many of the people seeking help are living in situations where they cannot cook. We need to provide foods that are ready to eat foods. The following are suggestions: Beef Jerky, snack crackers, canned meat, protein bars, fruit cups, peanut butter & saltine crackers. You may bring your donations by the office or you can leave them in the East lobby for pickup. You may also help by providing monetary donations for us to purchase the food for you if you wish. Those can be brought by the office or mailed to us. Thank you for your help!
“Do not be afraid.” That phrase appears 74 times in the NIV translation of the Bible. It’s one of the most common phrases in the entire Bible. But even more common than being told to not be afraid, the Bible tells us no fewer than 85 times that we should fear God, his Word, his actions, and his judgement. God knew that we humans would struggle with fear. That’s why he told us so many times not to fear. But at the same time, there are things God wants us to fear. Tim Archer shared with me a great illustration of fear. Every day we sit in rooms filled with electrical wiring, and devices. We even carry some of them around in our pockets. We have no fear of this. And yet at the same time we aren’t afraid of our environment or devices, we aren’t willing to stick a screwdriver into an electrical socket. We don’t live in fear of electricity, but we do realize there is a dangerous side. We understand this when it comes to electricity, but often we don’t act in similar ways when it comes to other issues. We tend to live in the extremes when it comes to fear; either we fear everything, or fear nothing. Neither of these is what God wants. Whoever fears God will avoid all extremes. - Ecclesiastes 7:18 NIV On Sunday in the auditorium Bible class, we will begin a study on fear. What does Scripture say about fear, why did God create fear, and how are we to live as followers of Christ? These lessons will be recorded for later access. You can also join us in person, or via livestream. Until then, I leave you with the words of Moses to God’s people reminding them of how they are to live. And now, Israel, what does the Lord your God ask of you but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in obedience to him, to love him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to observe the LORD’s commands and decrees that I am giving you today for your own good? - Deuteronomy 10:12-13 NIV Matt
