Pastor Appreciation Month

Pastor Appreciation Month 1

October is Pastor Appreciation Month and Eastmont has much to appreciate in this group of men that God brought together to lead Eastmont! Leading a church the size of Eastmont in the best of circumstances is not easy, but leading her through a global pandemic has been particularly challenging. They have had to make unprecedented decisions that balanced […]

Prayer Ministry

Prayer Ministry 2

Did you know that there is a group of Eastmont members who commit to pray for one or two hours every week for people who are hurting, ill, or lost? The Eastmont Prayer Ministry is one of the most vital, yet lesser-known ministries in our church. You have probably seen prayer cards in the pew racks and maybe you wonder what happens when you turn one in. Perhaps you have not thought about it at all. […]

Missions Isn’t Just for Grown-ups

Missions Isn't Just for Grown-ups 3

Missions is so much at the heart of the Church that we can’t just think of it as one aspect of the Church, but rather as its defining essence. If missions cease, the Church has not just failed, it has ceased being the church. That’s why educating our young ones about missions is so important. Eastmont provides an awesome opportunity on Wednesday nights to preschoolers through 6th graders for missions discipleship through Mission Friends (preschoolers), RAs (1st-6th grade boys), and GAs (1st-6th grade girls). Each month they learn about a missionary family as well as study a Bible lesson related to missions. […]

LifeGroup Focus: Young Married Class

LifeGroup Focus: Young Married Class 4

Several years ago, Eric and Heather Hill saw a growing number of newly married (or soon-to-be newly married) couples at Eastmont and felt a call to begin a LifeGroup for these young couples. Taylor Guttensohn, a member of the group, says, “You can really tell that Eric and Heather have a passion for serving our […]

Spotlight on Missions: First Choice

Spotlight on Missions: First Choice 5

Pam Jones says that her heart was touched when Bethany Garth, Executive Director of First Choice Women’s Medical Center, came to Eastmont in January on Sanctity of Life Day. She thought to herself, “I’m retired, and I need to be serving somewhere.” After the service, she talked with Bethany about being a volunteer, and a couple of weeks later she […]

Eastmont is blessed beyond measure by this group of hard-working people! The Building and Maintenance Team works diligently to keep our facility clean and ready for us to enjoy on Sundays, Wednesdays, or during the week.

LifeGroup Focus: Women of the Word

LifeGroup Focus: Women of the Word 7

By: Janet Robinson Life groups are an essential part of every church. It’s where we form our closest bonds with fellow church members—those we can call on at a moment’s notice for a prayer request, or say, “We missed you today,” or just to talk. Ultimately, these bonds can last for a lifetime. When I […]

Where Will You Serve?

Where Will You Serve? 8

By: Lauren Cumbie I have been at Eastmont my whole life, and if there’s one thing that has been impressed upon me from childhood it is that ministry and serving are important. We tend to think of ministry as something we do on a mission trip or as something full-time ministers do, but the truth is that […]

What is WMU?

What is WMU? 9

By: Marti Richardson For some of you, “WMU” is a household name; for others, it is simply three letters. W.M.U. (Woman’s Missionary Union) was established more than 100 years ago.“W.M.U. challenges Christian believers to understand and be radically involved in the mission of God.” That is done by PRAYING for missions, LEARNING about missions, SUPPORTING missions, DEVELOPING a lifestyle of missions, and […]

Student Summer Missions

Student Summer Missions 10

By: Emma Lavender As students, we have so many opportunities to go out not only into our own community but to others as well. This summer the youth group had two separate opportunities to impact communities outside of our own through the student choir tour and our summer mission trip. On choir tour, we spent […]
