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 65 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!
