Getting the congregation back together:
May 16, 2020
Our teams are continuing to identify areas to make you feel safe and ready to return to Eastview when we open our doors. We are also working to modernize and stream future services so you can ‘attend’ from anywhere. Please continue to keep our teams in your prayers as we look to sharing more in the coming weeks.

We recognize many of you are excited about Indiana’s upcoming stages to lift the social restrictions. We are also very excited to return and fellowship together. In order to best prepare for this, our leadership is putting together a team dedicated to making you feel safe and comfortable at Eastview. For now, we will continue to meet virtually and online. However, over the next several weeks, please keep checking in here with updates on our plan to get back together in fellowship.

Rick Miller: COVID-19 update
When we, the Eastview leadership, made the decision to provide a guide for a home worship experience rather than a plug and play model that you just watch, our hopes were that we, as a body of believers, would be strengthened in two specific ways. First, we would all be hearing from the Lord together on a weekly theme, and secondly, everyone would be taking a little more personal responsibility for their own spiritual development. The church is strengthened when the homes are strengthened. We are still early in this process and don’t know the full impact this exercise in ‘home churching’ will have. What we do know is that those who are taking it seriously are being blessed. This week Pam shared with me a report from one of our dear church family members, Terry Allen. During Terry’s Sunday morning worship experience, she was moved to write a poem that she has agreed to share with us. I am presenting it here now as a testimony of how God turns obstacles into opportunities for us to grow and honor Him. It brought me to tears and I hope it encourages you as well. I would love to hear from you about your experiences. God is good, all the time!
Churches stood alone,
no alters to atone.
Sundays came and went,
no time there was spent.
The wind is blowing, the streets are still
the virus has come to make us ill.
Most will live, some will die,
others will just ask, why.
Another Sunday passes by
The devil raised his arm up high,
he thinks for him, this is a win,
but not so fast Satan, look again.
Instead of one large church with steeples tall,
You’re surrounded by homes big and small.
Where prayers and praises raise the roof,
and if you think that’s not enough,
hymns being sung, ring through the wall,
with Jesus here, we still stand tall.
So, Satan hang your head back down,
and take another look around.
You have no more powers,
the victory is ours,
for when you closed our churches,
we just took God home with us,
and on His head, we placed a crown!
