It is our goal to create a photo wall in the church to visually represent you, the people of Eastside. You will receive a free high quality digital image for your own use as a thank you for your time. Feel free to email Jess Cusick if you have any questions!
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!
