Eastside is a congregation of people "Loving God-Loving Others- Making Disciples-Being Changed!” Join us as we worship, play, serve, learn & grow, & find in Jesus the answer to our needs! Everyone is welcome here, whatever their background, past or present. We do that because we are loved by God, & freely offer that love to you!  Our purpose at Eastside is to lead people into a relationship with God, then to teach & model Christianity for them until they lead others! If we can help you in any way, please let  us know.

EVERYONE is welcome here. We Love God, Love Others, Make Disciples & Let God Change us. We are your FRIENDS and want to assist you, wherever you are on your faith journey. Everyone is welcome here, whatever their past or present.  We are loved by God and freely offer that love to you.  
We try to help BELIEVERS, who have asked for and received Christ’s forgiveness, as their family, to encourage and help them grow; 
We walk beside DISCIPLES, those giving God full control of your life, to lead a vital Christian life through:
  • Practical Biblical teaching; 
  • Regular Prayer and Bible study; 
  • Awesome Worship
  • Investing in Discipling Others and Godly Friendships
  • Serving Others Personally
  • Extra Times- where God teaches, touches & changes. 
Whether you are a friend, believer or disciple, we love you and want to help your life & faith in any way we can. 

We do a great deal at Eastside- video monitoring, background checks and training for our children & teen staff, and ongoing support- to make sure everyone is safe and well-cared for here. We also work with our leaders, our government officials and others to make sure that everyone who wants to hear from God is welcome here. It’s part of Loving God, Loving Others & Making Disciples- & it’s who we are.
