Come to East Shore, Whoever You Are!

October is the Season of Invitation

What is the Season of Invitation?

For the month of October, the community at East Shore are focusing our energies more than ever on inviting our friends and neighbors from our surrounding communities, our personal networks, and our workplaces into our beloved fellowship.

You Belong Here!

We want you, the visitor, to know that you are welcome here at East Shore.

Your presence, your energy, your personal journey, your questions, and your wisdom are unique and special.  We build community one individual at a time, and we invite you to explore our community this month and anytime.
