New here?

Welcome to East Side! We're glad you're interested in visiting our church. You'll find that we seek to bring glory to God and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ in everything we do. For over 60 years now, it has been our mission to make much of Jesus Christ. We hope you'll join us for our weekend service and consider making us your church family. We're not perfect, but fortunately, we've been saved by the One who is!

Here's all you need to know before you show up your first Sunday morning at East Side: Come as you are. Although our time will be taken up by singing, teaching, and praying, you don't need any manual to figure out how to fit in. Jesus simply says "Come to me" and we say the same. Just come as you are!

Sunday Gathering Times:

Connect Groups (Sunday School) - 9am

Service  -  10:15am in the Worship Center

Most services last somewhere around an hour long, and are not age-distinct. Although some churches choose to have age-specific services, we choose not to in order to keep experiences the same for everyone. We have all ages attending our Sunday morning services, so no matter what your preferences are, you're welcome to attend!

For a Better Experience:

Please arrive early. As a guest and for our 10:15 Worship Service, please use the visitor parking lot closest to our Worship Center. You can then enter through the main entrance or under the drive-thru (preschool entrance). 

We want to be able to help you get acquainted with your surroundings, find restrooms, and if you have preschoolers, get them settled into our secure preschool facility. We have a friendly team here to serve you as you come to our church.

We have ministries for children of all ages, including Preschool (birth - kindergarten), Kids (1st-6th grades) and Students (7th-12th grades).

Dress is casual - khakis, jeans, a dress, or your Sunday best!
