Christmas Eve

Celebrate with us! Our Christmas Eve service will be held at 4:30 PM on December 24, and it will be shorter than a regular Sunday service. For those of you who purchased memorial poinsettias, you may take yours home following the Christmas Eve service.

Volunteers Needed Jan & Feb

We need to fill our January and February volunteer schedule ASAP, and you can help! Have you thought about serving children and families of the church? You are invited to join this vibrant ministry! Childcare/children’s ministry is offered during the 10 AM service, and if you are interested in volunteering, please click here. Sign up for shifts that suit your schedule! All volunteers will undergo a simple background check.

Start Your Sunday Here

Join us for a new Bible Study beginning January 16 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. We will be on holiday break Dec 26, as well as Jan 2 and 9.

Apologetics Class

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 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, starting January 11, 6-7 PM.

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.


Community Care

Are you willing to help members of your church family? If so, please email  for more information.

If you or someone you know has a need that can be met by our Community Care Team, please email .

Young Adults
