adults

Discipleship is at the heart of our ministry strategy for adults. Jesus clearly calls us all to be disciples. Luke 9:23 is one of the best examples of what discipleship means. "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me." This is a costly commitment, but it is the call to a life like no other. At East Side, we take this call seriously. All adults should be involved in a discipling relationship and should be in a small group. Our goal is to get you connected to other adults who are walking in God's Word and to help you become all God intends for you to become. There are small-group options available for you. 


Connect Groups - Sundays at 9am

Connect Groups (Sunday School) are our on-campus, life-stage Bible study small groups that meet at 9am. Each group is centered around four simple goals: connect, grow, serve, go. Practically that means that we want you to connect with God and other people through relationships. It also means that we want you to be growing spiritually and for the group to grow numerically. Serving means that the group is involved in some sort of service ministry to the church body. And going is simply getting into the community to share the Gospel with people in a practical way.

men

"So flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord with a pure heart." 2 Timothy 2:22


Starting August 21, we will meet on Wednesdays at 6:15pm. Growth can't happen without connection, so make plans to join us. Contact Pastor Chad and he'll get you all the info.


Another great thing about the men of East Side is that we engage wherever we are and we serve those around us. Whether it's helping a single person move to a new home, staying in the hospital with a dad who just lost his son, or calling a fellow church member to encourage them, we're always ready to move as God leads us. Come be a part of it.

East Side Men - be sure to join us on Saturday morning, October 26, at 8am, upstairs in the Fellowship Hall for a hearty breakfast and a time to pray for our church, city, and world. Sign up here!

women

As we minister to women, we strive to be a resource and aid as lives are transformed to become more like Christ while finding a fellowship full of warmth and acceptance. Opportunities are available to help you become the woman Christ has called you to be as friend, sister, grandmother, wife, mom, or aunt.


We believe that quarterly Bible studies help us to not only study God's Word but to love and obey His word.
Our Bible Studies begin on Wednesday, August 21 at 10am and at 6:15pm in Room N102.


We also believe that building connections with other women, sharing our stories, and reaching out to women in our community is key.


For more information on this ministry contact our Director of Women's Ministry, Emily Watson.
