Jason Rehmel
Lead Pastor

Wondering if Eastside is the right place for you? If you’re looking for an authentic group of people who: legitimately care about others; believe in the authenticity of God’s Word; desire to be difference makers in the world around them; and unapologetically love Jesus… then chances are, you found the church you’ve been looking for. Take a few minutes to check out our website and see what you think. We know that visiting any church the first time can be intimidating or awkward… but we want you to know that you are WELCOME and we look forward to meeting you!

What can I expect?

Here are a few things you can expect to encounter when you visit Eastside:
• Biblical, relevant teaching
• Engaging modern music
• A safe, fun, Jesus-centered environment for your kids
• No dress code—come as you are!
• Friendly volunteers ready to answer your questions

Services at 9:30am & 11am

Our services are about 60 minutes long and consist of worship through music, followed by a time of teaching. Eastside teaches out of the Bible and bring messages of truth, hope, and love. Services are held at 5874 Montclair Blvd Milford OH, 45150.

Parking

We have parking available all around the church campus with handicap parking located near the entrance of our church building.

Greeters

We know visiting a new church can be intimidating, that’s why we have a greeting team who would love to meet you and show you around! We don’t always recognize visitors because so many of the people who come are still fairly new, so feel free to say, “This is my first time” and we’ll guide you in! Stop by Eastside Central just outside the Auditorium or find someone with an "I CAN HELP" lanyard if you need anything.

Food & Drink

Grab a hot cup of free coffee  and sit wherever you’d like. Coffee is allowed in the auditorium so make yourself at home!

For kids & students

Nursery & Toddlers

In Nursery (0-18 Months) and Toddlers (18-36 Months) we introduce kids to their Heavenly Father through the love and care of trusted adults.  Our Toddlers are introduced to the Bible through video lessons and simple crafts that also prepare them for the transition into our preschool environments.

Preschool

In our Preschool environments, we engage the kids through play, creativity, worship, and engaging storytelling to reinforce these basic truths:

God made me.
God loves me.
Jesus wants to be my friend forever.

Service Times
Eastside Kids has age-appropriate classrooms for birth-4th grade available during both the 9:30 and 11:00 services. Check in opens 30 minutes before the service and classrooms open for drop off 15 minutes before the service.
Safety
In order to keep all our kids safe, we background check and train all leaders who serve with us. You can identify Eastside Kids leaders by the name tags and orange lanyards that they wear. Also, when you check in your children just outside the auditorium, you will receive a parent tag with a number coordinating to your kid’s tag. At pick up, you must present your parent tag to a leader so they can confirm that it matches with the kid’s tag.
Equipping Parents
We understand that the biggest spiritual influence in a kid’s life is their parents, so we want to equip parents to make the most of that influence. We do this by sending home a Parent Cue with our Preschoolers and Elementary kids that gives you ideas of how to reinforce what your kids have been learning about at church. We also invite you to follow us on Facebook for more ideas.

Elementary

Our Elementary kids are split Kindergarten-2nd Grade and 3rd & 4th Grade.  The classes come together for energetic worship and engaging Bible-based lessons and then split up for games, crafts, and prayer activities that reinforce the lesson.  Each lesson reinforces these basic truths:

I can trust Jesus no matter what.
I need to make the wise choice.
I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

Middle School

Middle School is a challenging time for people. Students are caught in the transition from their childhood into becoming a young adult, and that usually means they have a lot of frustrations and questions as the world around them changes. This is true for every aspect of their life, but especially in their faith. Eastside Students strives to provide our middle school students with a safe place, where they can feel free to ask questions and express what they are feeling and thinking. Our leaders guide our middle school students to find the answers they are looking for in the story of God, and help them create a faith foundation for their future.

In addition, we have events outside of church for our middle school community to grow together in, as well as experiences like the One21 Middle School Camp, One21 Fall Retreat, and CIY Believe.

When & Where

Middle School (5th-8th Grade) meets at 9:30 AM and 11:00 AM on Sundays upstairs in the Middle School Room.

High School

Eastside's high school ministry centers around giving our students a guide, in the form of our volunteer leaders. We believe that the most impactful way we can help our high schoolers find their place in the story of God, is through a relationship with an older believer, who understands and empathizes with the season of life our high school students are going through, and wants to be there to support and encourage them along the way.

Leader relationships are the foundation of everything we do, but we also meet weekly as a youth group, gather for frequent fun events outside of church, and participate in fun activities like CIY Move and the One21 Fall Retreats.

When & Where

High School (9th-12th Grade) meets at 11:00 AM on Sundays upstairs in the High School Room.
