Join us at 6:30-7:30 PM on Wednesday, December 8 for our Christmas Worship Night. What a wonderful time to invite your friends and neighbors to share in the joy of the season! Bring your favorite appetizer or dessert to share during our festive fellowship time from 7:30-8:30 PM.
We may have missed it in 2020, but we are back on this year for Christmas caroling in the neighborhood! First, we will gather at the Eastside and then set out walking and caroling. Then we will return to the church for refreshments and fellowship. Feel free to bring your favorite baked goods to share. See you December 12, 5:30-7:30 PM!
Healing Prayer Service
Everyone is invited to the healing prayer service 6:30-7:30 PM on Wednesday, December 15. We are eager to pray for physical, emotional, and spiritual healing as we come before the One who forgives, heals, redeems, crowns, and satisfies (Ps 103). Please invite anyone who you know needs healing. God will get all the glory! “Stretch out your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus” (Acts 4:30).
Our Christmas Eve service will be held at 4:30 PM on December 24.
Have you thought about serving children and families of the church? You are invited to join this vibrant ministry!

All volunteers will undergo a simple background check.
Join us for our upcoming weekly apologetics class beginning January 11, taught by Reed Willis. We will be 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 every 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, starting January 11, 6-7 PM.
We worship in person at 10 AM and our service streams live on our YouTube channel (Eastside Administration).
