Tom Avey, FGBC Fellowship Coordinator, visited the Eastside Grace Brethren Church in Columbus, Ohio, this past Sunday. Pastor Chip Heim has just returned from a two-week trip to the Ukraine to teach in a Bible Institute and told incredible stories of folks who had become “parables” of God in the lives of people who need Him.
Eastside has a strong missions program and recently created an attractive “Mission Central” area just off their main lobby (pictured) to keep missions in focus.
Eastside is planning a VBS for June called “Avalanche Ranch” including “Operation Kid to Kid” designed to help kids at “Avalanche Ranch” have a hands-on missions connection. Eastside was also conducting a Red Cross Blood drive on Sunday afternoon.
Eastside has a 9:30 worship service where the music style is blended and an 11:00 contemporary service. Pray for Pastor Chip Heim, his staff and the church as they continue to stay on-mission for Jesus Christ.
