Core Groups are smaller gatherings of folks from Eastside Church who gather to practice the resurrected life in community around Atlanta. We gather in homes & at the church. Groups will usually enjoy some food & beverage, study, pray, encourage/support one another. The goal is for folks to develop relationships & grow in faith together. This guide features our growth groups for the coming semester which lasts from the week of August 18th – December. Contact Heidi or register here if you are interested in joining a group.
