East Bend gathers every week to Worship Jesus as Lord and Savior! We are an informal group with some wearing casual clothing and others wearing their best. Our services usually last about an hour and 15 minutes and include a mixture of singing, reading of scripture, a teaching time, prayer, multimedia and occasionally drama.
We have a place for the kids! We have a well-staffed nursery for both Sunday school hour and during the worship. We also offer Children's Church during the teaching time for children 3 years of age through second grade. In addition to that, we offer "Busy Bags" for kids who want to stay in the sanctuary during worship time. We believe kids add life and vitality to our Church!
Our music is a mixture of traditional and contemporary. We use the piano, guitars, and have a very talented Blue Grass group that also plays.
Before Worship at 10:30, we also offer Sunday school classes for all ages at 9:30. The Children's classes meet in the basement and begin with a corporate singing time. There are also four adult classes that meet. All are welcome to open the Word of God together!
