Eastland Baptist Church has enjoyed a great history. As Youth Pastor, I look at our teens and dream of all the great things God has planned for each of them and for our future here at Eastland.
We are truly blessed with a great church and a great group of teenagers. I have the privilege of spending time with them each week and getting to know them individually. Our teens have a great heart to know and serve God. While you might not have the same opportunity every week, I want you to get to know our teens and invest in their lives. The investment you make today will reap unimaginable dividends in years to come. This past year, we saw amazing investments through the Dessert Auctions and “I Love my Church” Offering.
You invested significantly through the “I Love My Church” Offering. With that offering, we were able to construct new restrooms, add a welcome center, replace HVAC, create a new back entrance with awning, install windows across the front, install new front doors, a new front porch, and a wheelchair ramp. We could not have completed any of this work without your generosity. Before our “I Love My Church” Offering this year, we will take some time for our teens to tell you how grateful they are for your generosity.
We will be taking our “I Love My Church” Offering on Sunday, April 23rd. This year’s offering will again be designated for our teenagers and the completion of the youth room renovation. Significant progress has been made, but we still need to complete drywall and painting, install new flooring throughout, add lighting in the game room, and add roll-up doors between the game room and Jr. High room. This year’s offering will pay for a significant part of this work.
We are expecting great things for the future of Eastland Baptist Church. One of the ways we are making preparation is through the continued investment in our teenagers. Thank you for all the investments you have made and will make this year through our special “I Love My Church” offering.
