Bible Words

One wonderful ministry at church is spending time with our seniors.  Our Tuesday Bingo gatherings include lots of laughs, super prizes, great food, and always a sweet time of prayer and devotions.   I so appreciate the folks like Gayle Shore and Brenda Everett for their hard work and dedication in leading this special event.

God bless,

Pastor Hal

EBC Men at Caring Kitchen

All the hype and hoopla about who could make the best biscuits came to a head Saturday morning at the Caring Kitchen in Burlington.  In one corner you had Rick, with everything laid out meticulously and ready to take the top prize.  In the other corner you had Pastor Hal, with everything he needed to bake up a winning batch.  So who was the winner???  Neither one (HAHA)!!!  It was Debbie who stepped in with a loaf of sour dough bread that took 1st prize.  The funny quote of the day goes to Rick:  “3rd place got to go home with 1st place, so I’m the winner!”.  Guess you can’t argue with Rick on that!  For more information on the Caring Kitchen, please visit their website at:  http://burlingtonassembly.net/caring-kitchen/

 

Checking on David

As all of EBC knows our brother David had been in the hospital having issues with his lungs.  He is definitely making progress and we continue to pray he can go home soon.  We sure do miss seeing him and Marie at EBC!!!

1st Sunday Advent Reading – Hope

We would like to thank Benson and Jayci White for lighting our 1st Advent candle.  The 1st candle represents HOPE. 

Isaiah 9:2, 6–7:
“The people walking in darkness
    have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of deep darkness
    a light has dawned. […]
For to us a child is born,
    to us a son is given,
    and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
    Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the greatness of his government and peace
    there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
    and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
    with justice and righteousness
    from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the Lord Almighty
    will accomplish this.” (NIV)
