COVID-19

 

Message from Pastor Keith

On behalf of myself and Pastor Coco, we have an incredible resource for you right here on this website. If you're like many people, you are waking up in the morning, reading the news, and being inundated with bad news. There are a lot of things to be concerned about in the world today, particularly the Corona virus. The pace at which it is spreading is causing many people to be concerned, but I have a greater concern that the way that fear is infecting people's hearts is just as much of an epidemic. But that epidemic, the epidemic of fear, is one that only the gospel of Jesus Christ can answer. In response, we want to bring you a daily bit of good news. In the same way that God's mercies are new every morning, we want to connect you to that reality and truth so that you can be encouraged going into the day. In times like this, let’s continue to respond by faith and not react in fear. We will be providing scripture, videos, songs, and other resources every morning that will encourage you to start your day in faith.

Latest Update

Instead of gathering on campus, we are currently gathering LIVE online every Sunday! We count it a blessing to be able to use technology to continue gathering and sharing the Gospel with the world. In order to do our part in the effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19,  all on-campus activities, including youth and other group activities are suspended until further notice.

We will be continuing to broadcast our Sunday services online at 9 & 11am. Tune in 15 minutes early for our LIVE Pre-Service too! Join us by going to our Facebook Page or easthill.live on Sunday morning.

How You Can Love Your Neighbor

Many of you have inquired about how we will be helping support people who are most vulnerable during this time. We will keep finding ways to be a light for Jesus in our community! In partnership with the organizations that have reached out to us, we have compiled a list of ways to get involved. Please go to the links provided and find a way to help if you can. Together, we can begin covering these great needs. 

FOOD DISTRIBUTION in partnership with AMEN Ministries

If you are in need of food, we will be distributing food boxes every Thursday beginning at 10:30am at our Office Complex, (539 N Main Ave.) first come, first served. We will distribute all the food boxes on Thursday mornings until we have run out for the day. Note: there will be perishables in the food box, so you'll need to be able to refrigerate some of the items in a timely manner. 

Volunteers will be needed to transport the food each Thursday morning. Must have a truck or vehicle capable of transporting large pallets of food boxes. Email  to get started.

"HELP BOXES" through Safe Families for Children

In partnership with Safe Families for Children and DHS, we want to help meet the needs of families who are on the edge of care during this pandemic. If you can help, join us in providing "help boxes" to struggling families. The box consists of groceries, diapers and wipes, children's activities, etc. and you can sign up to help deliver the "help box" by filling out the form here.
