Advent Devotional Writers’ Sign Up

SIGN UPS FOR OUR 2019 ADVENT DEVOTIONAL are open now through October 31. The Advent Devotional signups are for anyone who would like to share their faith by writing a one-page reflection on one of our selected passages. The theme this year is “Faith, Hope & Love.” Visit to sign up, we encourage you to participate this year. What a joy it is to share the love during Advent Season. It will be here before you know it!

Church Wide Virtual Prayer Time

THE PRAYER TEAM established a weekly time of prayer and reflection for our church and covenant community. There is strength in numbers when praying together, so set your alarms and phones for every Thursday at 8PM to spend a few minutes in prayer for our church brothers and sisters, and our covenant community. Use the prayer list from the weekly bulletin and pray for those listed. Pull up the Thursday Morning Prayers email and pray intentionally for those listed. This is a wonderful way to start getting involved in the life of the church from your home. There is power in prayer and this intentional time weekly will get our church community in a good habit praying for each other as one voice.

Hurricane Dorian Relief Fund

THE OUTREACH TEAM IS PARTNERING with a Missouri based Christian organization, Convoy of Hope, to assist those in the Bahamas impacted by Hurricane Dorian. We have set up a Disaster Relief Fund to accept financial donations that will be sent to Convoy of Hope.  They will use that money to provide much needed supplies like water, food, and household items to the Bahamas.  To contribute, please write a check to Eastminster Presbyterian Church and in the memo line, write “Hurricane Dorian.” The Outreach team is contributing $1,000 to the fund to start with. If you have any questions please contact Norm Baur, ( ) or Mary Lynne Nielson, (  Thank you in advance for your contribution!

Kairos Hour of Prayer  

PLEASE JOIN US IN PRAYING FOR KAIROS WOMEN and volunteers at Lee Arrendale State Prison from 5-6PM on October 17 in the Sanctuary. At Lee Arrendale, volunteers bring in a prayer chain during the weekend. It circles the group as a visible symbol of everyone who is praying for them over the weekend. When they realize people they don’t know are praying for them it humbles them and hearts are softened. Contact Christi Laverty, ( with questions.
