We would love it if you'd join us for a Sunday worship service!

What to Expect:

As an Affirming Ministry, we are excited to see people from all walks of life come through our doors! We do our very best to accommodate everyone's needs - if you have sight, hearing or mobility challenges, please let our greeters know and we'll do what we can to make your visit with us an enjoyable one! 

Sunday worship takes place in our spacious, brightly-lit sanctuary and there is always opportunity to grab a cup of coffee beforehand. A message of inclusiveness and celebration of diversity are pervasive in our services. As well as the more traditional and much-loved order of worship, several times each year, our minister Russell Mitchell-Walker, offers interactive and engaging services that incorporate activities appealing to all ages.

Our capable pianists and music director, Cindy Haynes, lead us through a variety of hymns both old and new, and if the mood strikes you, there are drums available for you to join in! Often, our worship band Arise! treats us to their rendition of well-known spiritual pieces.

Following a sharing time during the service, kids are invited to head to Sunday School classes with our warm and fun-loving staff.  Other children and toddlers may stay in worship, move around, and play at the Kids’ Craft Table. When we celebrate Communion, children go to Sunday School at the very beginning and return to share Communion.

We have tried to remove any discomfort visitors may feel around the collection of an offering. Rather than "passing the plate" during worship, our offerings or donations are collected as you arrive or leave in either the offering plates at the back of the church or in the offering box on the wall by the entrance. Please contribute to our ministry at a level that feels right for you.

Come and experience the good energy of the Eastside congregation! Ample parking is available on the east side of the building, closest to the main entry doors. You are welcome here!

Join us Sundays:

10:30 am – Coffee in foyer with Living Spirit Partners – St. Philip Anglican and Bread of Life Lutheran

11:15 am – United Church worship (East Sanctuary) Feel free to bring your coffee!

Normally the first Sunday of the month is Communion; the second Sunday is the Open Hearts Jar for Mission and Service – bring some change and share something from your heart whether a joy or a challenge.

11:15 am Sunday School programming following theme time in worship

12:15 pm – typically the fourth Sunday of the month there is a potluck luncheon or other event.

Everyone is welcome. Feel free to ask anyone about the congregation or grab a newcomer pamphlet from the glass stand near the entrance doors. Our minister Russell is also available for conversation.


We'd love to hear from you! 306.761.0556
