Eastside Update 01.13.21

by Eastside Church on January 14, 2022

Class for New Members

Are you ready to join Eastside Church? Are you thinking about it but want to learn more? Our new members’ class is where you want to be on Sunday, February 13, 11:30-12:30. Staff and volunteer leaders will be there to share about Eastside’s ministries, and lunch is included. Please email  if you plan to attend. See you there!

Tuesday Nights

No registration is required for this class, so it’s not too late to join us for our weekly apologetics class. Led by Reed Willis, we are learning about the historical, scientific, and philosophical evidence that proclaims the truth of Christianity, as well as how to lovingly and confidently share our faith with non-Christians. If you have ever pondered questions such as, “Why would God allow evil?” or “Do Christianity and science contradict each other?” or if you are seeking to bolster your faith by learning about the abundant evidence of Christianity, we encourage you to join us Tuesday evenings at the church, 6-7 PM.

Friday Afternoons

Join us live on Fridays at 2 PM for songs of praise on Facebook and Instagram @eastsidechurchva.

Sunday Group Update

Join us for a new Bible Study beginning January 23 at 8:30 AM. We will be conducting an in-depth study of 1 Peter. This letter was written to Christians living in a struggling society that was progressively becoming more anti-Christian. Peter teaches us how to stay strong in our faith, deepen our walk with God, and how to relate to nonbelievers in a way that draws them toward the Gospel, all in the midst of such a difficult environment. Note: No class on January 16.

Sunday Prayer

Please join us for prayer in the foyer at 9:30 on Sunday mornings.


“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us” (1 John 5:14). Eastside prays in community Monday-Saturday by teleconference.

Check our website for daily prayer sheets with responsive readings to enhance your prayer time.

Prayer Requests

Do you need prayer for something going on in your life? We have prayer team members who would love to pray for you and your situation. If you want us to pray privately and confidentially, we will do that. If you would like your prayer requests to be shared and prayed for by our open prayer groups, we can lift them up during our weekly prayer times.
