Small Groups

A great way to get plugged in at Eastside Church is through small groups. We offer a variety of small groups, including families, single gender, content specific, age specific and life-stage specific groups. In our Eastside family, we share our joys, griefs, successes, challenges, calm and crazy days. We know we are meant to live and do life together. It starts here!

Find Your Small Group

We have small groups happening at different times throughout the week. Find a small group that fits your schedule and use the link to email the leader(s) of that small group for more information.

    Our group is uniquely designed for non-nuclear families (unmarried, with kids, without kids, with grown kids) interested in coming together to encourage one another in this season of life. We’ll be doing a study titled “Eternal Perspective: Living life in light of eternity”, diving into how we can best use our circumstances as opportunities to show the world who Christ is. Bring your best pinterest fails, financial oops, questions about God, and insta-pot recipes to share! Childcare TBD.
