This past Sunday was our best attended since COVID-19. We had our largest attendance at both the 8:45 and 11:00 worship services. Counting our worship team, tech team, and staff, we had over 200 total in worship. This was our first Sunday back for eleven of our LifeGroups including our college and youth. We had nearly 200 studying God’s Word in person.
We are looking forward to our children coming back for LifeGroups and children’s worship on Sunday, September 13. We encourage parents to let Linda Truitt or Donna Clements know if you plan to bring your children on that Sunday. Parents will be receiving letters this week about plans to bring our children back to study God’s Word safely and wisely. Those in kindergarten will be attending worship with their families. “New Kids on the Pew” bags will be made available for those coming to worship for the first time. These bags will be made available at the entrances to the worship center.
Please put the date, Saturday, September 19 on your calendar. Eastmont is hosting the Montgomery Baptist Association (MBA) Rolling Food Pantry for a Community Food Outreach from 2:00—6:00 pm. Watch for more information regarding this great mission opportunity in which everyone can be involved.
More entrances are being made available for Sundays, especially since we are opening up LifeGroups. We still encourage you to enter through the worship center foyer, but the handicapped entrance adjacent to the choir suite will now be available for disabled persons to enter. In the foyer, masks and hand sanitizer are still available.
I pray for each of you Colossians 3:12-17: “So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience; bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you. Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.” Amen.
