what to expect

We know that sometimes your first visit can feel a little overwhelming or intimidating. We think you'll quickly discover why we say "this is for everyone". We are a diverse congregation of all ages, and a place to take a next step wherever you are in your spiritual journey. We welcome the skeptic, the doubter and the believer. Eastside is a place where it's okay to not be okay.

Here are some frequently asked questions you may have before you join us:

Our music is upbeat and contemporary and you may even recognize a song or two.  Sometimes we’re loud so we guarantee you won’t fall asleep!

For our Christmas services we recommend arriving about 30 minutes early. We will have some great photos ops for making memories, you can grab a drink at the cafe and enjoy all the Christmas decor.

We have amazing volunteers we call Change Makers!! You’ll find these friendly people wearing red shirts who can’t wait to welcome you and show you around! 

Wear whatever you want and are comfortable in! A lot of people like to dress up for the holiday photo ops!


As we are immersed in the nostalgia of Christmas, this memorable experience has something for everyone of all ages. During each Christmas service  we offer children’s programming for kids under five. Click HERE for more info.
