Community Center

Jesus spoke many times about the importance of helping those in need. While we know we cannot meet all the needs in our community, the Local Outreach ministry is committed to exemplifying the abundant grace and love we have been given. We hope that by demonstrating the ridiculous love of God to people in our community, everyone involved will be drawn closer to Him.

I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me”. Matthew 25:35, 36

Introduction to the Bible

Mondays from 7-8pm at the Bloomington Campus (September 13 - October 18) 


Have you ever wondered how the Bible came together?  Why do we have these books and not others?  Have you heard that the Bible has inconsistencies?  Does reading the Bible just seem confusing and you’re not sure where to begin?  Join us this fall for Introduction to the Bible as we discuss these and other questions you may have about the Bible as we encourage your understanding and love for God’s Word.



Church History, part 1

Tuesdays from 7-8 pm at the Bloomington Campus (September 14 - October 19)


The history of the Christian Church is not just about names, dates, and obscure facts.  It is about the people of God and their joys and struggles in following Him.  We will begin with the early church from the book of Acts and journey with God’s people until the year 1500.  (In the spring, we will continue this journey from 1500 until present day.)  We’ll learn about church leadership through the ages, the persecution of early Christians, how and why specific beliefs were developed, and so much more.  Most importantly, we’ll discuss how the history of the church affects the church and our faith today!

Through the Eastview Community Center, we are REimagining how to best serve our community in providing coats, toys, and food to those who we have already been journeying with.

The Food Pantry at Eastview is a local outreach ministry providing food, paper products, detergent, and personal hygiene items.

Eastview Sewing Circle meets twice a month to work on sewing projects for local ministries and partners.


This Single Mom’s ministry is to provide women the opportunity for rest, encouragement, and fellowship.  Our goal is to help equip each woman with the tools to rebuild, repair and revive them in Jesus.  With this support, we help moms build a foundation for living a life for Christ and teaching their children to do the same. Join us at the Bloomington Campus (401 Union St.).


“Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.” 1 Thes. 5:11
