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.
Sydney and Kristi Rhodes
Twice a month - Day/Time TBD
Our group loves talking about the word of God and supporting each other as brothers and sisters in Christ. We're mostly singles but welcome anyone to join us. Together we'll decide what to study and when we will be meeting this Fall. It will likely be twice a month. More information is coming soon.

We meet immediately following the worship service twice a month. Normally, we share a potluck lunch at our home in Lacey Spring. This fall, we are meeting in an outdoor setting as much as possible. Our meetings consist of a short Bible study or discussion of the morning sermon followed by a time of sharing and prayer. At this time, childcare is not provided.
