Growth Groups

Growing together at EastSide

The mission of our church is to grow life changing relationships – with God and neighbor. At Eastside, we firmly believe one of the most effective ways to grow our relationship with God and neighbor is in a small group setting.

Our small groups, which we call “Growth Groups”, meet regularly throughout the year in various homes and coffee shops, creating a setting where folks can truly share life together. We would love to have you join one of our groups!

Current Groups

Young Women’s Group

An engaging group of women who meet Tuesday evenings at area parks and coffee shops. The group enjoys fellowship and conversation around a book study.

Tuesday 7:00-8:30 pm

Senior Growth Group

Our group is an eclectic bunch of men and women who simply share a desire to build relationships with God and neighbor as we seek and apply Biblical truth to life’s challenges, especially those more common to us seniors.  If you consider yourself a member of our honored senior community, consider yourself invited! Please enter your contact info above and press submit!  Someone will be in touch soon!

Youth Time

Teens gather at least once a month to enjoy fun activities with Branden Hummer, our youth coordinator. The event and location varies, but a great time is always to be enjoyed by all. Check out the events calendar for planned activities.

Young Families

This growth group mainly consists of moms and dads of younger children, applying Biblical truths to parenting.  Video lessons are mixed with Bible study and discussion, fellowship and prayer.  Child care is provided.

On break for summer.  Stay tuned for Fall 2017 signups!   

Monday Night Mixed

Our mixed Eastside Growth Group is a “multi-generational, multi-cultural, couples or singles, later teens or adults of any age (although babies are welcome!), hearts yearning for grace, living to serve, leaning into the Word and growing together, sharing life’s journey” kind of group.  We often have a fun starter dialog or game, unpack the scripture (tied closely to Roger’s sermon series) and close in gentle prayer.

Every 1st and 3rd Monday 7:00-8:30 pm starting back up in the Fall 2017

Financial Peace

This Group meets Wednesday evenings  for 9 weeks.  Learn how to get control of your finances!  We are following the curriculum provided by renowned Christian author Dave Ramsey, applying Biblical truths to money management.

Next session TBD.  Send email to if interested.
