NEW: Look for the Thanksgiving Edition of the “Joyful Noise” from the Christian Education Ministry, it will be emailed to the congregation in the week ahead.
November 26, 2023. Friends and Family day during morning worship. Additional information to follow.
The Mission House: After 30+ years of significant ministry in the Eastwick community, the mission house will be shuttering its doors with an effective date of mid-November. Some ministry will continue through December, but primarily the Mission House will not be open on a regular basis. We give thanks to Mrs. Annette Glover, and all of the volunteers who have worked in the Mission House during the season. We ask that you lift prayers, and hope for a new iteration of the Mission House, which will require planning and engagement from members of the Eastwick community. Please look for a time of celebration and Thanksgiving in the month of December. We give thanks for what the Lord has done, and we look forward to what the Lord will continue to do.
Girl Scouts: We are excited to hear that the Girl Scouts will be restarting their activities within the life of Eastwick soon. Look for more information to come and if you have a strong interest in helping with this ministry, please see Christ servant, Charmaine Tyler.
Please remember we are collecting for the Methodist Childrens Toy Drive, the earlier we start the more children we can provide for. Our Eastwick family has been a continued contributor, and we thank you so very much for your generosity ,as we ask for your help once again. For more information see Flyer in the narthex and weekly emails.
See Sis. Helen Best to contribute.
Focus Prayer: Please continue to stay connected with those unable to participate in the life of the church due to their present concerns and those experiencing grief and/or other emotional concerns.
Remember to think globally in your prayers. Remember the Middle East, the Gaza Strip. Remember the Western Cape of South Africa, the Sudan, and Zimbabwe and the ongoing conflict in the Ukraine.
- Continue to lift up the Father Hood and focus on Evangelism/Outreach in the life of the church.
