we are a community of Christ's followers
What holds us together is not ethnicity, education, income, or politics. We are a family because in Jesus we have a common allegiance. Christ, with his broken body and shed blood, is at the center of all we do together. We each come—bringing our unique stories—to journey life together as a community. It is not about uniformity but unity, so that together we may live for Christ.
We would love to welcome you at Eastern Avenue! Whatever your age, sex, race, abilities, economic status, sexual orientation, or gender identity, you are invited to participate fully in our Jesus-following community of faith. God loves you!
