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.
