EPC Covid-19 Update
 
After a more than 6 month hiatus, we are all looking forward to our return to Sunday morning in-person worship at Eastminster, beginning on Sunday, October 4th at 10 am.  It’s our honor to welcome our new transitional pastor, Rev.

On Monday, you will be able to register your family or household group online by using the link provided via email from Eastminster Presbyterian Church or found here on Eastminster.com.  We will be limiting our registrants to a maximum of 70 attendees, so please register early.

Worship
 
“Listening for the Word of God”
 
On Sunday, October 24th, join us online for a very special worship service prepared by members of Foothills Presbytery.  The service is centered on Psalm 46, with the theme, “Listening for the Word of God.” It is the collective effort of over 30 presbytery church leaders, and is designed to offer words of hope, wisdom, and unity during a time when despair and distance intimidate the Church.  Parts of the service were filmed at Eastminster in the Sanctuary and Outdoor Chapel.  The closing song features Lucie Svatonova-Hughes and Carol Irick.  A link for this service will be provided via email prior to the service.
 
World Communion Offering
Sunday, October 4th is World Communion Sunday. We will be collecting one of Presbytery’s special offerings, Peace & Global Witness Offering. The money collected will be used to support the Presbyterian commitment to peacemaking and reconciliation ministries both locally and globally. Twenty-five percent of the money stays with our church to be used for peacemaking in our community. Please consider giving in order to support our calling as Peacemakers.
 
Note: Our plans are to use our Facebook and YouTube tools for virtual worship for those who cannot be present during worship.
 
 
Eastminster Weekly News
 
Each Friday, we publish the  “Eastminster Weekly News” which is an email that describes the events in the church and the Worship service for the coming week.  Please sign up for this Friday email so you can see what’s happening in the life of the church.  This is especially important if you wish to receive the liriturgy for worship and direct links.
 
Adult Education Classes
 
With the resumption of in-person worship, we will be moving our Adult classes to 11:30 am.  Both the Fireside Chat and Adult Disciples class are meeting via Zoom for now.  Please contact the church office for details about the Zoom meeting.
