We strive to provide ministries that help each person grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. We understand that there is a great value to age-appropriate teaching to best equip every man, woman, and child take their next spiritual step.

Prayer Ministry Overview
We prioritize prayer in the life and ministry of our church. Our desire is to be a church of prayer, where everything is bathed in prayer. There are several ways for you to join us in prayer.
Most importantly, we encourage you to set aside a special time and place to pray every day. Begin by reading your Bible and getting into God's presence. Then pray for things that God brings to mind. Keeping a personal prayer list is a great way to keep up with recurring needs. Our Church Prayer List has scriptures and quotes to help guide your thoughts.
Join Our Church Prayer Meetings
Please come pray with us each Sunday morning, even if you can only stay for a few minutes. This is a great place to learn how to pray. We'd love to have you join us this Sunday, 8:30-9:15am at church in Class Room #1, or by Zoom at this link.

The Children’s Ministry at ECC is dedicated to presenting the Word of God to our children so they may grow in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Our goals, in partnership with parents, are to teach and apply spiritual truths, illuminate the character of God, and examine how the redemptive story of Jesus is woven throughout God’s Word. The curriculum for our K-5th grade students is The Gospel Project, “a chronological approach to teaching that allows kids to see how the whole Bible points to Christ.” We are always looking for servant-hearted people to help with this ministry.
Small Groups are the best way to experience fellowship, spiritual care, and the other blessings of church life here at Eastside.
Our Small Groups meet regularly on our church campus and in homes in various locations around the city. We enjoy the fellowship that allows us to catch up on each others’ lives, discuss and apply God’s Word, and pray for one another.
Women’s Ministry at Eastside Community Church exists to connect and equip women for Christian living and disciple-making through the power of the Holy Spirit. Meeting Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. at the Church.
Our Vision is to See Women . . .
Entering into a relationship with God through Jesus
Abiding in Christ and serving in their unique callings
Enjoying healthy relationships in their God-given roles
Participating in discipling relationships
We plan and host events and activities that connect women with other women and provide entry points into our Large Groups, Small Communities, and Discipleship Groups.
We work with our Christian Education ministry to plan and host Bible Studies classes and seminars that equip women for Christian living and disciple-making.
We encourage women to pursue deeper relationships with other women by praying together, serving together, and fellowshipping together in small groups.
We encourage women to seek spiritual accountability and growth as ‘disciple-makers’ in pairs, triads, and quads.
