WANT TO THROW A PARTY IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD?

Summer is a great time to get to know your neighbors! We believe neighborhoods and communities begin to change for the better as we build relationships. So, host a party for your neighbors and Eastown will provide the movie screen, s’mores boxes and snow cone machine.  Interested? Sign up here.

LOVED NO MATTER WHAT

We believe that people are encouraged and changed through love.  What if a person's first interaction with Eastown was not an invitation to come to a Sunday morning service, but an act of love shared with them for no reason at all?  Throughout our community, we want people to experience a bright spot in their day and know that they are loved no matter what.
