Ministries

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

Prayer Ministry Overview

At Eastside Community Church, prayer is one of our main core values. We do not believe we can accomplish lasting spiritual fruit apart from God's supernatural power, so we make it our aim to 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.

Our Prayer Team

Our Prayer Team are ordinary Christians who have committed themselves to pray for the needs of our church and our community.  We meet Sunday mornings for team prayer, and we also pray individually every day for the needs of others.

Weekly Prayer Meetings

We gather for prayer Sunday mornings, 8:30-9:10am, in Class Room #1 and by Zoom. We’d love to have you come join us! We invite you to come pray with us, even if you can only join for a few minutes. This is a great place to learn how to pray, and to learn to pray in a group environment.  Feel free to come when you can and stay as long as you can.  Dropping in for 5-10 minutes is OK.

Quarterly Prayer and Praise Nights

Each quarter, we dedicate our 5th Wednesday nights to an evening of prayer and praise.  The meetings start at 7:00pm in our main auditorium, and generally conclude by 8:30pm.  Our elders will open the evening from God’s Word and special instructions on the focus and format of the evening.  Our Music Team will lead us into God’s presence through song and praise, and will occasionally play instrumental background as we spend time communicating with God.  Throughout the evening, people will have opportunities to pray individually, in small groups and with one another.  Our elders will often lead corporate prayer.

Thank you for considering joining us as we seek God through prayer.

Children’s Education

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.

Community Groups

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.
