At Eastgate we pride ourselves in being friendly and loving. You'll be greeted by a member of our welcome team and they'll make sure that you receive a free gift for joining on your first time. You can enjoy a free cup of coffee in our newly remodeled Welcome Center where you can sit, relax, and meet other people before the service starts.
What do I wear?
We invite you to come to church in whichever clothing you're most comfortable. At Eastgate you'll see everything from jeans and t-shirts to "Sunday Best" suits and ties. With us, you’ll never be judged or treated differently by how dressy or casual you appear, your taste in body art, or the amount of money it looks like you have in your bank account. Our desire is to come to the Lord with one voice, as one body – with many parts.
How long will you keep me?
Our Sunday morning services start at 10:30 a.m. and usually conclude around noon including about 25 to 35 minutes of Praise and Worship at the beginning of the service. We recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early and enjoy a free cup of coffee and grab a good seat! Our mid-week worship services are on Wednesday nights at 7 p.m. Our Wednesday night services usually end at around 8:00 and after we have a free meal for you and your family and a time of fellowship.
You’ll see pretty quickly that we love to worship through music! You will hear music from every stage and style of the church, from timeless hymns to the newest worship anthems, from gospel to modern worship, and everything in between. And we love to worship enthusiastically! From raised hands to dancing feet, there will be active praise going on throughout the sanctuary. Just know that you may participate in whatever posture is comfortable for you, and will never be required to engage in any specific way.
Pastor Rick Doran is passionate about preaching the full gospel in his messages. His sermons include a mixture of preaching and teaching styles, including many illustrated sermons. Pastor Rick employs a combination of profound and thought-provoking biblical truth with practical life application points. Check out a few podcasts here!
Nursery is always available for every service. Sunday mornings Children under the age of 13 are in the sanctuary during Praise & Worship and then are dismissed to our Faith Kids classes for children of all ages. Throughout the year we have many big events for our children including kids camp, VBS, Easter, and our annual Hallelujah Party!
