Planning on joining Eastridge Community Church this weekend by attending Starting Point. Me and Ken are planning on having dinner at The Hope Diner tonight and enjoying Celebrate Recovery Eastridge. Anxiously awaiting a wonderful dinner, service, private class time and coffee following. My next step is Starting Point at Eastridge Community Church. I have not moved my letter since a little girl at Oxford Baptist but have attended several churches regularly as an adult but plan to move that letter to Eastridge Community Church next Sunday March 8th.
Starting Point is your opportunity to become a Ministry Partner with Eastridge.
Many churches call their committed church goers “Members” But membership applies a certain set of rights and privileges. We believe that the Body of Christ is made up of many parts, all of which are equally important. The Church is not a country club rather it is a group of believers who are partnering together to fulfill the Great Commission of Jesus.
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. Matthew 28 : 19 – 20
So Eastridge prefers the phrase “Ministry Partner” instead of Member. Ministry Partnership includes attending, serving, giving and participating in biblical community. This journey begins at Starting Point. We offer our Starting Point class where you’ll learn the vision and values of Eastridge. This two hour class will introduce you to several ministry leaders and give you the chance to dialogue with each one. There will be plenty of time for questions, a tour of the campus, and time for fellowship too. We will discuss what a disciple looks like and some steps to growing in your faith. And at the end of the class you’ll have an opportunity to become a Ministry Partner with Eastridge Community Church. Sign u on the Connect Card at the Connect Center or by emailing us at StartingPoint@eccmail.org once you sign up you will receive additional details about the class.
