WHAT TO EXPECT
We desire to make your visit to East Side refreshing, friendly, and enjoyable for your whole family. We want you to experience inspiring music, helpful teaching and preaching, friendly people, and a place where you feel welcomed. We have already established many ministries to serve your entire family. Bring your family to East Side; we’re here for you. Here are a few answers to your questions and what you might expect when you come as our guest.
When Are Your Services?
Our main worship service begins at 11:00 on Sunday mornings. Before our main worship service, we invite you to join one of our Bible classes, offered for every age, beginning at 10 AM. Each worship service provides an opportunity for you to connect and grow closer to God through inspiring music, practical preaching, and friendly atmosphere.
10 AM - Bible classes for all ages
11 AM - Morning Worship
6 PM - Evening Worship
7 PM - Midweek Bible study and prayer, Master's Clubs
What Happens When I Get To East Side?
You can find a place to park in our main parking lot. As you approach the main entrance, one of our hospitality greeters will meet you and direct you to our welcome center, where you can find the right classes and services. They can also answer other questions you may have.
At 11:00 on Sunday morning, adults and teens attend a traditional worship service where they enjoy the beautiful and inspiring music of the choir and join in congregational singing. The music is always followed by a clear, helpful, and challenging Bible message. This service is about one hour in length. Also, at 10 AM, there are adult Bible classes. These classes are smaller group settings where you are invited to meet people, perhaps enjoy some coffee and donuts, and hear a teaching lesson more directly applicable to your age or life-stage. The best way to get to know people at East Side is to visit one of these adult Bible classes.
Where Do I Take My Children?
Starting with excellent nurseries, there is something special for every age child. At every service there are safe, clean, and highly staffed nurseries for children three years old and under. For children four years old through sixth grade, there are fun, friendly, and Bible-centered classes. These classes are staffed with trained, friendly, and well-qualified teachers and helpers who will make church exciting and memorable for your child.
Our campus has a few different buildings, and we understand you might not know where to go at first. It’s not as complicated as it looks, and we would like to help you find the appropriate nurseries, classes, and services for every person in your family. Our ushers will gladly help direct and even escort you to the right place.
What About My Teens?
Our student ministries meet together for Sunday School. Most of the teens attend a class for one hour and then join in the main worship service the following hour.
How Should I Dress?
We don’t have a dress code at East Side for members or guests. Our ministry leaders and many of our church family dress in more traditional ‘Sunday’ dress; however, our main goal is that you would feel welcome and comfortable on your visit here at East Side Baptist!
Am I Expected To Give In The Offering?
No. We don’t invite you to East Side for your offering. We want our service to be a gift to you. We hope you will find in this place a warm family spirit, truth from God’s Word, and a place where you can grow in God’s grace. Please don’t feel any obligation to participate in the offering as our guest.
If there’s something we missed on this list, just give us a call, or ask someone when you arrive. Whether you’re new to the area and looking for a church home, or if it’s been a long time since you’ve attended church at all, we hope your first visit at East Side Baptist will be great! We exist to serve you and your family, and we are looking forward to meeting you personally. We hope you’ll feel right at home from the very first moment you step onto campus! Let us know how we can serve you better, and we hope to meet you this Sunday!
