Don't Miss Out on the Good Times

Friday, April 12, 2019

Dear Eastridge Family,

Just a reminder tomorrow so you don’t miss out on the fun.  We are asking everyone who is able to join us at the church at 10am.  We will be filling our plastic Easter Eggs with candy and doing some cleaning and small repairs to get ready for the most important week of the Christian year.  We still need some more candy if you have not brought yours to the church yet.  Stephanie has some meat cooking to share for lunch with all our volunteers.

Our Holy Week schedule includes:
  • Wednesday, April 17 instead of meeting to pray in the sanctuary, we will be praying as we walk in our neighborhood and distribute Easter Invitations flyers.
  • Good Friday is April 19. We will be remembering the suffering and crucifixion of Jesus Christ.  Our church will be open from 12 p.m. for anyone who can come to pray. We will have a service at 7pm and we will receive Communion as well.
  • Sunday 21 we will be celebrating Easter! We will not have Sunday school, because we will have a breakfast from 9:45 to 10:30 a.m. This is a great opportunity to invite your friends and family to hear the good news of salvation!  
  • Following the Easter Worship Celebration, we will have an Easter Egg Hunt for the children.
  • We will also receive the Easter Offering for missions.  The Nazarene Church supports over 700 missionaries around the world in 162 different countries.

My Favorite Quotes from last week
"The most miserable people in the world are the people who are self-centered, who don't do anything for anybody, except themselves." - E. Stanley Jones

"Be hard on yourself and easy on others. Carry your own cross but never lay one on the back of another." – A.W. Tozer

Until we see Jesus as our Good Samaritan, we will never be sacrificial in our love for our neighbors. – Tim Keller

E-Note From Pastor Eva 2-24-19

“To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.””
John 8:31-32 NIV
Jesus tells us that if we hold on to his Word then we will really be his disciples which means we will really get to know the Truth — Jesus Christ! And the Truth, Jesus Christ, sets us free! Holding on to his Word is essential to being free! This is exactly what we are learning about in our small groups with our new church-wide study, Emotionally Healthy Spirituality. Author Peter Scazzero said, “It is impossible to be spiritually mature if we are emotionally immature”. This week, we learned 10 telltale signs of emotionally immaturity in our own lives. Furthermore, we learned that we   need to intentionally slow down in order to learn how to lead a more contemplative life. That’s what the “Day By Day” devotionals are meant to help us with. It leads us  in taking a couple of minutes to sit in silence in order to focus on God, read a brief Scripture verse and meditation, a small prayer, and another moment of silence. I strongly recommend everyone to purchase theirs soon!
My wish is for every one of you to experience the joy and challenge of starting this study! The joy of knowing that God desires to heal me and free, regardless of how much or how little time I’ve been a Christian. The challenge of genuinely recognizing and accepting my emotional problems with the purpose of achieving the health and life God wants for me is just overwhelming. If you have no had the opportunity to assist any of the different groups throughout the week, i urge you to do the impossible to attend one this week. Here is a schedule of study groups going on throughout the week:
  • Monday
    • Spanish | 630PM | Southside Wichita led by Felix Ordoñez | 3420 S. Osage Ave |316-516-5011
  • Tuesday
    • English | 630PM | Fellowship Hall | Young adult group | led by Dalia Vargas/Pastor Andy | 316-832-5616
  • Thursday
    • Bilingual | 630PM | North Wichita | led by Todd and Cheryl Hunter | 311 N. Dowell | 316-619-4096
  • Friday
    • English | 7PM | South East Wichita | led by Tim and Nelly Bertrand | 1770 S Rock Road #1711 | 832-692-0028
    • Spanish | 7PM | South East Wichita | led by Carmen A./Janeth F. | 7603 E. Indianapolis St | 316-682-0309
  • Sunday
    • English (but if you need an interpreter, please let me know at 316-304-4648 and we will provide one for you) | 4PM | Fellowship Hall | led by Pastor Andy | 316-832-5616

  • Alabaster Box: Please don’t forget to bring your alabaster box tomorrow, February 24th!
  • Wedding Shower: for Crystal and Isaac, Saturday March 2nd at 11AM in the Fellowship Hall.  We will be serving brunch, and there will be a sign up sheet tomorrow morning at the entrance for anyone that would like to participate in making food. 
  • Time Change: Sunday the 10th of March at 2AM we will have to set our clocks one hour forward!
  • Enchiladas: We want to first thank everyone for understanding the postponement of the fundraiser. The new date is still to be determined. Thank you for your contribution and willingness to support the youth group!
  • Fasting: We believe that fasting is a powerful tool that God has left to the believer who humbles himself and recognizes that only He can perform a miracle. As a church we are united in fasting with the following purposes:
1- So that through the study of Emotionally Healthy Spirituality each one of us can experience emotional healing to reach spiritual maturity.
2- To prepare for Easter. Lent-meditation time on Christ's suffering for our salvation-begins on Wednesday, March 6 and concludes on the day of resurrection on Sunday, April 21.
3- A revival in my life, in my family, in my congregation and our nation.

  • Prayer for one another- I strongly encourage you to keep in your prayers our brothers and sisters, but also to reach out to them by calling or visiting them.

Querida familia de Eastridge,

Mientras nos acercamos al final del año 2018 y consideramos la frescura de un nuevo ano, muchas personas consideraran que es lo que han alcanzado o que les gustaría cambiar en el 2019.  Enero es un tiempo popular en donde las personas se registran en una membresía del gimnasio con planes de hacer ejercicios y perder algo de peso. Para los discípulos de Jesús, también es popular para hacer un nuevo compromiso de leer más la Biblia o de orar más, pero al igual que la membresía del gimnasio, las buenas intenciones no son suficiente buenas para hacer los cambios que deseamos.

1 de Timoteo 4-8(NVI) “Rechaza las leyendas profanas y otros mitos semejantes. Mas bien, ejercítate en la piedad, pues, aunque el ejercicio físico trae algún provecho, la piedad es útil para todo, ya que incluye una promesa no solo para la vida presente, sino también para la venidera.”

Tenemos que procurar ser piadosos. Por siglos los cristianos han reconocido que necesitamos entrenamiento de transformación para ser como Jesús. A esto le llamamos disciplina de entrenamiento espiritual. La meta de las disciplinas espirituales no son las actividades; la meta es la transformación. La meta es Jesús.

En 1922 Rhea Miller escribió:
Prefiero tener a Jesús que los aplausos de los hombres;
Yo prefiero ser fiel a Su preciosa causa;
Yo prefiero tener a Jesús que un mundo de fama;
Yo prefiero ser verdadero a Su santo nombre
Que ser el rey de un vasto dominio
Y ser retenido en el terror del pecado;
Yo prefiero tener a Jesús que cualquier cosa
Que este mundo pueda ofrecer hoy.

Mi oración es que usted me acompañe en los ejercicios espirituales que nos transformaran a hacer como Jesús.

Fin del ano para dar.

Cita favorita de la semana
“Cada cristiano aquí es un misionero o un impostor. Recuerda que tu estas tratando de esparcir ampliamente el reino de Cristo, o de otra manera tu no lo amas para nada. No hay tal cosa que aprecias altamente a Jesús, y estar con tu lengua silencia acerca de Él. Claro que con esto no quiero decir que esos que usan el lapicero o la pluma por Cristo están en silencio; no están. Y esos que ayudan a otros a usar la lengua o a esparcir lo que ellos han escrito, están haciendo su parte; pero, quiero decir esto, ---que el hombre dice, “yo creo en Jesús, pero no piensa suficiente de Jesús ni nunca les dice a otros acerca de Él, ni por la boca, ni el lapicero o la pluma, es un impostor.”-C.H. Spurgeon

Dear Eastridge Family,

As we come to the end of 2018 and consider a fresh new year many people will consider what they would like to accomplish or what they would like to change in 2019.  January is a popular time for people to sign-up for gym membership with plans to work out and to lose some weight.  It is also a popular time for disciples of Jesus to make new commitments to read the Bible more or to pray more but like with the gym membership, good intentions are not enough to bring about the change we desire.

1 Timothy 4:7-8 (NIV) says, “Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales; rather, train yourself to be godly.  For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.”

We must train ourselves to be godly.  Christians for centuries have recognized we need training to transformed like Jesus.  We call this training spiritual disciplines.  The goal of the spiritual disciplines is not the activity; the goal is transformation.  The goal is Jesus.

Rhea Miller wrote in 1922:
I’d rather have Jesus than men’s applause;
I’d rather be faithful to His dear cause;
I’d rather have Jesus than worldwide fame;
I’d rather be true to His holy name

Than to be the king of a vast domain
And be held in sin’s dread sway;
I’d rather have Jesus than anything
This world affords today.

My prayer is that you will join me in the spiritual exercises that will transform us to be like Jesus.

Favorite Quote of the Week
“Every Christian here is either a missionary or an impostor.  Recollect that you are either trying to spread abroad the kingdom of Christ, or else you do not love him at all.  It cannot be that there is a high appreciation of Jesus, and a totally silent tongue about him.  Of course, I do not mean, by that, that those who use the pen for Christ are silent; they are not.  And those who help others to use the tongue, or spread that which others have written, are doing their part well; but I mean this,—that man who says, ‘I believe in Jesus,’ but does not think enough of Jesus ever to tell another about him, by mouth, or pen, or tract, is an impostor.” - C. H. Spurgeon

Noviembre 2, 2018

Recientemente hemos visto en las noticias la terrible tragedia de la matanza en la Sinagoga de Pittsburgh. Hemos tenido reports de un gran grupo de personas que viene hacia la frontera de los Estados Unidos con la intencion de pasar a los Estados Unidos. Pienso que hay aun una tragedia mas grande que ocurre en nuestra nacion y en nuestro estado por los ulitmos anos...desafortunadamente no ah tenido mucha matanza de bebes no nacidos.
El ano pasado el estado de Kansas reporto mas de 6  mil abortos en 2017. El Aborto es un acto de matanza directa que toma la vida de un ser, una vida que comienza en la concepcion. 
The Bible does not specifically mention the word abortion, but it has a number of significant things to say about unborn children.  These Biblical statements indicate that the unborn are persons.  Therefore, abortion is wrong since it is killing a human being.  A simplified form of our argument is the following:
La Biblia no menciona espicificamente la palabra aborto, pero tiene un numero de cosas que decir en cuanto a bebes no nacidos. Estas declaraciones Biblicas indican que los no nacidos son personas. Entonces el aborto es malo porque mata a un ser vivo. Una forma simple de este argumento es el siguiente:
          Premisa #1: Es malo matar a una persona.
          Premisa #2: Un bebe no nacido es una person
Conclusion: Entonces, es malo de matar un bebe no nacido
Exodo 21:22-23 La Ley Mosaica considera a los bebe no nacidos como personas que merecen tener protecion y tener derechos como adultos.
Jeremias 1:5 dice "Antes que te formase en el vientre te conoci, y antes que nacieses te santifique, te di por profeta a las naciones" 
En Mateo 1:20 el angel le dice a Jose "El Nino que ah sido engendrado" es "Del Espiritu Santo" indica que Jesus ciertamente fue una persona en el momento de la Concepcion. 
La Iglesia Nazarena afirma la santidad de la vida humana es establecida por Dios el creador y cree que tal santidad es extendida al bebe no nacido. La vida es un regalo de Dios. Toda la vida humana, incluyendo la vida que se desarrola en el vientre, es una creacion de Dios en Su imagen y por lo tanto debe ser cuidada, apoyada y protegida. 
La Iglesia Nazarena tambien reconoce que muchos han sido afectados por la tragedia del aborto. Cada congragacion local y creyente es urgido de ofrecer un mensaje de perdon por Dios a cada persona que ah sufrido un aborto. Nuestras congregaciones locales tienen que ser comunidades de redencion y esperanza para todo aquellos que sufren, el dolor fisico, emocional, y espiritual como resultado de la terminacion de un embarazo. (Romanos 3:22-24, Galatas 6:1) 
La proxima semana vamos a tener elecciones importantes para el estado de Kansas y los Estados Unidos. Hay muchos problemas importantes: Taxes, matrimonio, cuidado de salud, immigracion por nombral algunos. Para mi es muy dificil ver otro problema mas importante que el aborto. Tenemos que apoyar y oponernos a candidatos que apoyan la matanza de los no nacidos.
Les animo a orar por las elecciones de la proxima semana. Les animo a que pidan una avivamiento en America donde seamos convictos de nuestros pecados como una nacion. La Biblia es clara, Dios no bendice a una nacion pecadora. 
Pastor Andy

Recently we have seen news coverage of a terrible tragedy with the mass killing in a Pittsburgh Synagogue.  We have been having reports of a large group of people traveling towards the US southern border with the intent of coming to America.  I think there has been a greater tragedy occurring in our nation and in our state for the past several years…unfortunately it has not had much attention…the killing of the unborn babies.

Last year the state of Kansas reported over 6 thousand abortions for 2017.  Abortion is an act of direct killing that takes the life of a tiny human being - a life that begins at conception. 

The Bible does not specifically mention the word abortion, but it has a number of significant things to say about unborn children.  These Biblical statements indicate that the unborn are persons.  Therefore, abortion is wrong since it is killing a human being.  A simplified form of our argument is the following:
Premise #1: It is wrong to murder a person.
Premise #2: The unborn is a person.
Conclusion: Therefore, it is wrong to murder the unborn.

Exodus 21:22-23 strongly indicates that the Mosaic Law viewed the unborn as persons worthy of the same protection and rights as adults.

Jeremiah 1:5 says, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.”

In Matthew 1:20 the angel tells Joseph that “the Child who has been conceived” is “of the Holy Spirit” indicates that Jesus certainly was a person at the moment of conception.

The Church of the Nazarene affirms the sanctity of human life as established by God the Creator and believes that such sanctity extends to the child not yet born. Life is a gift from God. All human life, including life developing in the womb, is created by God in His image and is, therefore, to be nurtured, supported, and protected.

The Church of the Nazarene also recognizes that many have been affected by the tragedy of abortion. Each local congregation and individual believer is urged to offer the message of forgiveness by God for each person who has experienced abortion. Our local congregations are to be communities of redemption and hope to all who suffer physical, emotional, and spiritual pain as a result of the willful termination of a pregnancy.  (Romans 3:22-24; Galatians 6:1)

Next week we will have an important election for both the state Kansas and the United States.  There are many issues that are hot topics: taxes, marriage, health care, and immigration to name a few.  For me it is hard to see an issue that is more important than abortion.  We should support the unborn and oppose candidates who support the murder of the unborn.

I want to encourage you to pray for our elections next week.  I encourage you to pray for a revival in America where we be convicted for our sins as a nation.  The Bible is clear God will not bless a sinful nation.

Pastor Andy
