Giving & Serving
You’re needed at Eastside
Giving cheerfully and sacrificially of our finances is part of our worship.
At Eastside we believe that God blesses us so that we can bless others. We don’t live simply to accrue greater personal wealth and possessions but to generously share the resources entrusted to us. The desire of our hearts here at Eastside is to “love everyone and serve anyone”. One of the ways this is lived out is by our joyful and generous financial contributions to God and His Church (2 Corinthians 9:7, Proverbs 3:9). We call our Eastside family to give, not by meeting some obligatory percentage, but gladly sacrificing for the sake of the gospel because Jesus sacrificed for us, and all we have is His.
We thank those who are helping us live out God’s heart for Eastside through your cheerful and sacrificial financial contributions.
Serving at Eastside
If you’ve been served by Eastside, whether it be through our guest services team on Sundays offering a smile and a cup of coffee or tea, our teachers in the Nursery or KidZone, our musicians leading us in worship, our or site services team helping with parking, etc. – chances are you’ve been served by a faithful volunteer giving up time and talent to serve Jesus by serving you.
At Eastside, we intentionally keep our budget and staff small and rely on a huge community of volunteers who love Jesus and love to serve his church.
And we’re always in need of more help.
If you consider Eastside your church, we invite you to join us as a volunteer. By doing so, you’re an essential part of helping others meet Jesus. And if you’re a Ministry Partner, you’ve committed to serve generously as part of your Ministry Partner Covenant.
Here at Eastside, we want to love everyone and serve anyone. One of the ways we do this is by welcoming each person as they arrive, helping them find their way, provide extra care/assistance when needed, and generally make each individual feel at home. If you’d like to share a smile and shake a hand, please let us know!
Every Sunday a dedicated team of volunteers arrive early to help with parking and set-up, to make sure Eastside is ready to go for service. Team members also stay a few minutes after service to make sure any needs are met, and to get Eastside ready for the week ahead! This is a great way to get involved and an awesome ministry to our family! Contact Hans at firstname.lastname@example.org or write a note on a response card during Sunday service and place in an offering box. We would love to hear from you!
At Eastside, we know that children are an important part of God’s kingdom, and we make it a priority to connect them to Jesus. We’re looking for people with a passion for connecting kids to the kingdom and who can engineer fun learning activities in our KidZone and Nursery.
We’re all about glorifying God through the talents with which He has blessed us. If your gift is musical, we’d love to have you be a part of our worship team! The team meets for practices during the week and for sound checks on Sunday morning. Let us know if you’ve got a song in your heart and we’ll find a place for you to bless His heart!
Here at Eastside, we know that faith isn’t just a Sunday morning thing. We’re looking for dedicated people to lead times of fellowship, support, and study during the week. If it’s on your heart to provide a safe place for God’s people to connect, we’d love to help you get started!
