WHAT TO EXPECT                             

WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU VISIT?

We would love to have you as our guest at any of our worship services. We understand that visiting a new church can be a somewhat strange and threatening experience (though we try not to bite).  So what can you expect if you visit at Eastside?

  • Seating:  There are no “reserved seats.”   Feel free to sit anywhere you wish.
  • Singing:  Our singing is a cappella (without instrumental accompaniment) and congregational. We make this choice because we want to encourage everyone to participate fully in the praise. We sing a blend of older hymns and newer praise songs. Our singing is led by a worship leader in singing four-part harmony.  Song lyrics are projected on a screen, and copies of the music we are singing is in book form.
  • Lord's Supper:  The Lord's Supper will always be part of our Sunday morning worship assembly.  In this communion, we remember Jesus and emphasize the central place of His cross in our faith. Since the cross is at the center of who we are, we partake of the communion each and every Sunday. Often the comments before communion will be as important to the service as is sermon.
  • Offering: The work of the church is supported by free-will offerings of the members. As our guest, you are not expected to make a donation.  We raise no money through other activities outside our Sunday giving. 
  • Preaching: The sermon will be 20-25 minutes long, and it will be centered in Scripture.  If our study raises any questions, please feel free to ask someone after services. After the sermon, an invitation will be offered for those with a prayer request or a desire to be baptized. At this time, we will stand and sing a song.
  • Children's Message:  Before the message, our children are invited to the front for a message brought by our preacher, Dorman Holub. There's never a dull moment with the children. 

Feel free to stop in an visit us anytime you have the opportunity. We think you will be glad that you did. We invite you to become a part of our Christian family of God... under the Cross.
