Welcome: I Am New

I Am New

We are so glad you found us! Eastminster is a place where all are not only welcomed but embraced! We believe that all people are loved by God and have the image of God within them and invite all people to use their gifts, talents, and experiences for the sake of Christ’s mission in the world.


We invite you to join us for worship each Sunday at 10:00 am! Following worship, you are invited to an extra cup of coffee, conversation, and our Nurturing Faith (education) hour which begins at 11:15am. This is suspended for the summer months with various intergenerational and fellowship opportunities. We also have additional education and fellowship groups that meet throughout the week. Click here to see more about our educational and fellowship groups. 


When you Arrive

When you arrive, you will be greeted by an Eastminster member who will welcome you and invite you to fill out a name tag. Please look for the Visitor cart off to the left to receive a goodie bag with information about our church. We hope you will fill out the visitor book at the visitor cart or place a visitor card (found in the connection pads on each row) in the offering plate. This is a way we can thank you for joining us and connect with you later if you are interested.

Our Sanctuary

Multiple rows of people in the large Sanctuary.

When you enter the sanctuary, you will quickly discover that we started our first building as a Family Life Center. This means that our sanctuary is a multipurpose space. This allows us to transform the sanctuary at various times to allow for mission and outreach. Throughout the year our space is turned into a variety of things from a meal packing center, a kids sports camp, and a Bistro (restaurant to raise money for our youth ministry).

Children at Eastminster

All children are invited and encouraged to attend worship each week with their families. We have worship bags with activities for children that can be taken to their seats to help them participate in worship (found in the back hanging on a wooden stand). The children are invited to join Mrs. Joan for a time with children during the worship service and then can return to their seats for the remainder of service. We think it is important that children are welcomed in worship and that they learn the rituals of worship by worshiping with their families. Twice a month following worship during the school year, we offer opportunities for them to learn the stories of faith in fun and engaging ways.
