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, Ethan Williams, 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!
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.
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!
