Welcome to Eastminster!
Eastminster's mission is to encourage people to enjoy the fullness of knowing, loving and becoming like Jesus.

Worship
Worship is where we orient our lives towards God and
we are filled again with his presence. We are one church body with three distinct worship venues, bound by common faith and vision.

Grow
We believe we are best discipled (becoming more like Jesus) when we interact with God’s Word in authentic community. We do this through Grow Groups, which resume the week of January 8, and meet weekly. Find yours at eastminster.org/grow-groups.

Serve
We are most fulfilled in the church when we are using our gifts to serve others. Want to learn more about opportunities to serve? Visit eastminster.org/serve.

GO
We all GO and share the gospel, from the end of the street to the ends of the earth. Being missional is who we are.

GO Encounter: Restricted

Sharing Jesus in Hard Places - February 24 – 26 Experience what life and ministry look like in “hard places” where it’s difficult, and often dangerous, to share the gospel. This immersive, interactive weekend is designed for families to be able to engage together and in age-appropriate settings – there is something for everyone! Connect with our missions partners and EPC World Outreach leadership (including Stated Clerk Dean Weaver), try your hand at a cooking class or engage in a secret church meeting. Together we’ll experience what it’s like to live in a place where there is no church. Register below or sign up to volunteer.

One Service & Congregational Meeting
Sunday, February 19, 9:30 a.m. (no 8 or 11 a.m. services)
Let’s gather to worship as one body before our meeting. Join in worship at 9:30 a.m. and then stay for a Congregational Meeting to recommend the Senior Pastor Search Team and elect the Church Officer Nominating Committee (this is the team that identifies elder and deacon candidates). We’ll also hear an update from leadership about our finances and next steps for the church. The Annual Meeting of the Corporation will immediately follow, with the primary purpose of electing the Trustees of the corporation.

Antioch Missions Conference

Friday, January 27, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. The Antioch conference is a one-day conference hosted by the Great Plains Presbytery designed to equip followers of Jesus for missions and evangelism. Antioch is not just for church leaders, but for everyone who desires to GO with the gospel. This year’s conference will bring fresh ideas for the local and international mobilization of congregations, as well as some insight into the changing landscape of American culture. This year’s keynote speaker is Al Ewart of World Impact. Register below!
