FROM YOUR PASTOR


Mike Northcutt - ebc@eastmont.org


How far is Krasnadon, Ukraine from
Montgomery? It is only 24 inches. On an all night
train I shared Holy Communion with an elderly
stewardess. She spoke no English and I spoke no
Russian, but we communicated. She pointed to a
cross on her neck. I pointed to my Bible. She gave
me a piece of hard black bread. I gave her some of
my Ramen noodles. We prayed and ate in silence.
It wasnt a Lords Supper that I am accustom to, but
Christ was there with us. This Sunday we will share
the bread, the cup, and fellowship of Christs presence
through the Lords Supper. Come join us and invite a
friend or a stranger.

I want us to be a church that people cant stop
talking about. This is not an ego thing. It is a God
thing. And guess what causes people to stop in their
tracks and talk? It is transformed lives. It doesnt have
to be sensational changes. It may be as simple as a bad
attitude or as complex as a recovering addict. When
God changes lives and others hear about it, people
really start talking. Tell your Life Group how God
keeps working in your heart. Your story of faith will
encourage others and give the hope.

I hope you appreciate what an amazing church
God is building here at Eastmont. As pastor, I see a
lot of things you dont. There are hurting lives, broken
hearts, and wounded spirits that come through our
door. Too many for me to minister to. What blesses
me is how God uses you to provide healing, hope and
redemption.

I have always been inspired by the Apostle
Pauls description of his friend Onesiphorus. You
are like a breath of fresh air to me. (2 Timothy 1:16).
God intended us to be a source of life, support, and
encouragement for one another. When someone told
me they didnt need a Life Group (Sunday School)
I quickly said, but they really need you! Be an
Onesiphorus to someone this week.

Ill see you Sunday,

SUNDAY SCHOOL SPOTLIGHT

Mills / Stickle / Mills Class (His Seasoned Saints)


Our Sunday School director, Eddie Eckermann has asked
us to tell you a little about our Sunday School Class ---Im
sorry, our Life Groups. We have been known for quite
some time as the Mills/Stickle/Mills Class but decided
thats not really who we are. Its not our class, its His.
Since each of us belong to God, our group belongs to God
as well and we choose to be referred to as His Seasoned
Saints. We are His Children, His Salt, and His Saints!

Our mission is to worship with the Lord with all
our hearts, our souls, our minds, and our strength! The
group consists of men and women and chronologically we
span about thirty years - from the sixties to the nineties.

Our ministries are as varied as our membership,
but our initial response to anything is always the same - we
pray. We love and care for each other and do whatever
we can, whenever we can to exhibit and spread the love to
whomever we can. That may involve furnishing a meal,
providing transportation, visiting a homebound brother
or sister, offering temporary financial assistance, or doing
whatever is necessary to share Gods love and grace with
someone who needs to know that he or she is not alone.
Regardless of the need, His Seasoned Saints live and do for
the Lord! You dont have to join our group, but please join
our effort. Today, someone, somewhere needs to know
that Jesus Christ loves us unconditionally--and--He lives!

Love in Christ,
His Seasoned Saints
