first Time Guests
Be Our Guest
Welcome! Folks arriving at East Church will find a friendly welcome at the front door. Enter the building off Giddings Ave., and come upstairs to the entrance to the sanctuary. You’ll be greeted and asked to sign the guestbook so we can be in touch with you later. If you require an elevator, that entrance is also off Giddings Ave., and will bring you to all the public areas of the building. Come as you are; no matter where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.
If you are a first-time visitor to our church, the best way to learn more is to experience one of our worship services and to pick up a monthly newsletter. You can also welcome to talk to any of our staff after a Sunday service at 10:30 and they will be happy to answer questions you may have. We invite you to browse our website here to learn about our involvement in the community and the services we provide to help our members grow spiritually. In our website, you will meet some of our people, our staff, and learn more about our beliefs, core values, and various ministries.
