Rick’s Reflections- 3/20/2016

Today is a day we remember Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem.  We are reminded that even though the crowd did not understand what was really happening, Jesus did, and He went anyway.  That is at the heart of the gospel message.  While we were still in our sins God loved us and did for us … [Read more…]

Rick’s Reflections- 3/13/2016

This week as we focus on the Word of God as our most important realignment tool consider the following: Imagine that you are in the woods late at night, and it’s moonless and pitch black.  You’ve failed to make it back to camp before sunset and now it’s so dark you can’t see a thing, … [Read more…]

We are blessed today to have the opportunity to hear a word from God through a dear brother whom the Lord has lead to be a part of our Eastview family.  Steve Moody and his lovely wife Sandy are both dedicated servants of Christ and we are already gaining the benefits of their fellowship with … [Read more…]

Last Sunday was a very special day for the Eastview family as we were able to affirm leaders and get an encouraging treasurers report as well as a great time of fellowship and worship.

Most people get a little uncomfortable when the message is about money.  That’s ok, because even though it is very personal, it is also very important to our spiritual growth.  We are compelled to address our finances as part of our faith journey.  We cannot miss the prominence of the subject in Jesus’ teaching. As … [Read more…]

Rick’s Reflections- 2/14/2016

Last Sunday we began a series of messages under the theme Realignment.  We looked at our schedules, the way we use our time in relation to what we say are our priorities.  We were reminded that we all have the same amount of time in a given day and we also have choices as to … [Read more…]

In my email account there is the typical inbox, sent, deleted and drafts.  A new one now is “clutter”.  I have two in there at the moment.  It reminds me of the way our life can get.  Cluttered up with things that don’t matter much.  Too much clutter and we get off track, out of … [Read more…]

Allow me to say thank you to our very dedicated  Fellowship team. The War Room movie night was a tremendous success.  There was a great time of sharing before and after the powerful message of the film.  I am sure that there were changed hearts as a result of that effort. Today we close out … [Read more…]

Rick’s Reflection’s- 1/24/2016

America’s greatest need is a spiritual awakening. That will mean admitting the nation’s foolishness for replacing our traditional Christian foundation with a “religion of secularism.” Like Martin Luther’s Protestant Reformation in the 16th Century, an explosion of faith that can rock the world for generations is needed. But this movement likely won’t come into view … [Read more…]

Rick’s Reflection’s- 1/17/2016

Last week we started on a new series of messages that address the changing culture in America and its impact on the church. What we hope to bring to light is both a Biblical understanding of these times and our response to them. As we address the concept of persecution we will be stretched. How … [Read more…]
