Nathan’s Notes- 4/14/2019

    Happy Palm Sunday! As we approach Easter and our celebration of the resurrection of our Lord, we continue to look at His roles as “Prophet, Priest, and King”. Today we will be focused on Jesus as a priest. Priests were a central part of Old Testament society. It was the priest who offered the … [Read more…]

Rick’s Reflections- 4/7/2019

Today we begin a short series on the work of Christ and its implications for each of us. We will think about the different aspects of His ministry and how they teach us not only more about Him but about our response to Him. As we approach the most significant season of the year it … [Read more…]

Rick’s Reflections- 3/31/2019

This week as our text leads us to think about the significance of childlike faith, I would like to take this space to share a few thoughts about our ministry to and with youth here at Eastview. We all acknowledge the fact that our youth are not just the church of the future but a … [Read more…]

Nathan’s Notes- 3/24/2019

     We’ve all done it, and most of us have had to deal with it in others.             Insincerity: doing something with a half-heart or even no heart.

Rick’s Reflections- 3/17/2019

Tonight, we have a very special opportunity to fellowship as a body of believers and to have some fun with our young people.  The St. Patrick’s Day meal and activities is a chance to celebrate faith and encourage one another with some good old-fashioned fun.  You don’t have to be Catholic or Irish for that … [Read more…]

The coming of the kingdom of God is the header for the text in this morning’s sermon.  We are continuing on with our study of living with the end in mind. Kingdoms don’t seem to be a topic on most peoples radar any more.  That is unfortunate in the fact that some of the clear … [Read more…]

Rick’s Reflections- 3/3/2019

Do you remember all the panic of Y2K, how about the Mayan calendar date of 12/21/2012? We could go on! If it was not so sad it would be funny. We get twisted around the axel trying to figure out something that we will never be able to know and miss the whole point of … [Read more…]

Rick’s Reflections- 2/24/2019

Last week we spent some time thinking about the Apostle John’s comments to Gaius in III John. He spoke of the fact that he had “no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.”  As a body of believers Eastview has had the joy of seeing many of its “children” … [Read more…]

Rick’s Reflections- 2/17/2019

Today we have the unique opportunity to review as a congregation where we have been and where we are hoping to go as a body of believers. You will be presented with the opportunity to think through what it means to be part of a church family and to evaluate our collective impact in our … [Read more…]

Rick’s Reflections- 2/10/2019

What would happen if we truly gave the keys to our future to God and then set out purposefully to find and do His will with the rest of our lives? What if we gave as much of ourselves as we could to as much of God as we can grasp, to live as if … [Read more…]
