Rick’s Reflections- 10/8/2017

We have given the title “Family; by The Book” to this series for good reason. God’s Word provides standards that are essential for marital unity. Today we focus on His standards for managing money. This is a very relevant topic as we all know. None of us can navigate life without dealing with money. Many … [Read more…]

Rick’s Reflections- 10/1/2017

Today we continue our look at Family: By the Book and focus on roles & responsibilities.  This is a very important topic and one that is hotly debated in our current culture.  The family crisis in our country is forcing us to determine where we stand.  In an increasingly pluralistic and tolerant culture we must … [Read more…]

Nathan’s Notes- 9/17/2017

     I hope everyone else is as excited as I am about today’s picnic. It’s a great opportunity to spend time with our families- nuclear and the family of God- and to get to know each other better. In John 17, right before His death, Jesus prayed that all His followers would be one. It is … [Read more…]

Rick’s Reflections- 9/10/2017

Today’s message is one that I needed to hear. Funny how God works, isn’t it? He led us to a series of messages about Bible  heroes and in doing so He climbed right into our hearts and minds.  He reminds us of things we have known but maybe have forgotten.  He opens our eyes to … [Read more…]

Rick’s Reflections- 9/3/2017

This morning we are looking at one of the best-known stories in the Bible. I hope our revisiting a familiar passage will encourage us all to be faithful to our Lord in the time He gives us. Noah is testimony to the fact that God has always chosen His own as an act of pure … [Read more…]

As we continue along, gleaning Lessons for Life from some of the great personalities of the Old Testament I want to remind you to not miss the purpose of these messages.  That is sometimes easy to do when we are covering familiar subjects and stories.  Paul tells us in Romans 15:4 that these stories were … [Read more…]

Nathan’s Notes- 8/20/2017

      I think everyone would agree that last Sunday was a wonderful day at Eastview. Rick’s message on “The Three Chairs” clearly laid out our choices: “Will I have no heart for God, be only half-hearted, or be sold out for Him?” If you are like me, those options have rung in your mind … [Read more…]

Rick’s Reflections- 8/13/2017

Some have said that our life is the sum result of all the choices we make, both consciously and unconsciously. There is some truth to that and it applies most importantly to our spiritual choices! Our text and message today highlights this principle in living color. How in the world did the children of Israel … [Read more…]

Rick’s Reflections- 8/6/2017

As we have been examining the lives of some Old Testament champions of the faith there is a characteristic that is common to all of them. It is integrity. Max DePree, outstanding Christian businessman, maintains that “Integrity in all things precedes all else. The open demonstration of integrity is essential.” Living with integrity is hard … [Read more…]
