Growing Together

One of the most important lessons I have learned over the years regarding what it means to be a disciple of Jesus is that the quantity of knowledge is less an indicator of the maturity of a person’s faith as is their willingness to believe and obey what they actually do know. Take for example the apostle Paul’s words to the church in Thessalonica. He writes them saying, “We ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers, as is right, because your faith is growing abundantly, and the love of every one of you for one another is increasing.


This year's winter retreat, WIJITSAWSIDAHF (ask your student if you don't know), was a resounding success! We had a great weekend at the Woods. You can read a summary of the weekend messages HERE and check out some pictures below:




A Vision for Our Future

Last November we celebrated our 30/60 anniversary; 60 years as a church and 30 years on Webb Road. It was a time to celebrate our past and the right time to ask ourselves, “Where do we go from here?” I wanted to ask the Lord for his vision for our church and ask him what he wanted Eastminster to look like. I did not want to undertake this important task alone, so I assembled a team that would pray and seek the Lord’s will and help discern a vision for our future.


Hey Parents,


The winter retreat is here! I am so excited to spend a weekend at Westminster Woods worshiping God, studying his word and growing together in Christian community. We have a great group of students, small group leaders and volunteers all ready to make it an amazing weekend. Let me tell you about what we’ll be learning.

Kristen's Fasting Story

In January 2018, we focused on 21 Days of Fasting, Prayer and Repentance as a church family. Here is Kristen's story of how fasting has impact her:

God decided that he would like me to get a jump-start on the fast that our church is doing. On November 26, 2017, God told me in the middle of the night to stop drinking alcohol for one year. I happen to really enjoy my glass of wine each night, so this seemed like a radical request from God. I wanted to obey, however, so I made a deal with God and told him that I would stop drinking until the end of 2017 – a little over a month.
