MEAL TRAIN MINISTRY
Are you a talented chef? Do you command a kitchen like a pro? Can you throw a frozen lasagna in the oven like a champ? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the above, we need you to join the Meal Train Ministry! When a member of our community has a baby, has a surgery, experiences a loss, etc. we want to provide a meal to help make life a little simpler. If you are occasionally available to bring a meal to a fellow Eastsider who may be in need, email Brit Eyster for more information!
SERVE WITH EASTSIDE
Looking for ways to get plugged in and serve with Eastside? We consistently need more volunteers each Sunday. It’s a great way to get involved & meet new people! You can find a host of ways to be involved & sign up to serve by visiting us online at www.eastsideatl.org/serve or by going to the Info Table after worship.
