discussion guide

three ways to get more out of the weekend message

we've collected some resources to help you on your spiritual journey.

discussion guide

Each week we provide questions to help you apply the weekend's message. During the week take some time to review these questions on your own or with others.

sermon notes

You will find the sermon notes exclusively on the Eastside App. These notes include links to the Bible verses and an easy way to follow along during the message.

join a group

Small groups are weekly gatherings of 5-15 people that meet in homes, coffeeshops, the great outdoors and online. Wherever you are in your journey, we have a group for you.
