“Thankful for Eastridge…” That’s a phrase loaded with so many meanings. Of course I’m grateful for an amazing body of believers who are truly in love with God. I’m thankful that God is choosing to use these people to achieve His purposes. I’m especially grateful that, after a difficult year, I can see His hand in everything that has taken place here at Eastridge.
I’m thankful for our pastors and elders, who are clearly in tune with the Lord. I’m thankful that the pastors are not just my leaders; they are my friends. I’m grateful that I am able to serve the Lord as a vocation. (These days, I’m grateful to have a job at all, really…) I’m thankful for a staff who are like a second family to me. I’m thankful that I work in a place where joy and fun are valued. I can’t help but thank God for this place I love so much.
