Congregation Luncheon of Celebration - January 20
Needing to get better and intentionally celebrating church-wide accomplishments, we want everyone to mark their calendars now for a very special day in the life of EastPointe. Everyone is invited to join us after our worship service on Sunday January 20th, 2019 for our first ever Congregational Celebration. We will give thanks to God as we have a delicious meal and officially launch our church-wide strategic Plan. This is the goal we have set for every area of our ministry and we pray God will powerfully use those plans to advance His mission. Plan now to join us and stay tuned for details.
Your input and help is needed to make our Strategic Endeavors successful. Through all the Sunday afternoon meetings in 2018 and in addition to the overall strategic plan we have identified these initiatives we’d like to accomplish in the next few years. Those plans are; evangelism training, Financial Peace University classes, an annual Trunk or Treat and supporting the Rolling Chapel. Please consider which of these you are most suited to be a part of. You can commit to one of these areas by talking to Pastor Keith or Naila Carnagua and by attending the Strategic Plan Launch Lunch on Jan 20, 2019.
Copies of the proposed amendments to our constitution and bylaws are available at the connect center. The overall goal of these changes is to lead EastPointe in functioning even more biblically by nurturing a culture of input from the entire congregation on major decisions. Due to some excellent and helpful input and feedback, the vote on this proposal has been postponed until January 27th, 2019 at 12:15 pm. This will give Pastor Jim an opportunity to present a thorough and biblically based explanation and will allow time for your consideration. The elders welcome all feedback and input, please do not hesitate to talk to us about this proposal.
