East Hill Community Groups

A Note from Pastor Nate

Welcome to our Community Groups page! Here is where you can find a group to join in the East Hill Church Family! In the context of community, we travel deeper in our relationship with God and with others. The truth is, we need each other! Together we can learn, grow, and live fuller, more purpose-filled lives. I'm so glad you are checking out our groups! I'm here to help along the way. You can reach me at
