Welcome to Eastgate

Seeking God, Sharing Christ, Serving Others

Eastgate Welcomes Rev. Rhonda Hetzel as our Senior Minister

The Search and Call Committee is excited to announce that we have called Rev. Rhonda Hel a u new Senior Minister.

Pastor Rhonda has prepared a video which introduces herself to the Eastgate congregation, and we encourage you to view it below.

Online Sunday Worship Service

Relying on advice from health officials, Eastgate Christian Church has made the difficult decision to stop in-person gatherings, including worship, until further notice.

Instead, Eastgate is offering recorded video worship services, featuring leadership by our minister, co-music directors, and elders. New services are being prepared each week.

The current recorded worship service is available above. You can also find previous online worship services here.

5/10/21 UPDATE: Beginning June 1, 2021 the board has approved the Reopening Plan. For details, please contact the church office for a copy of the plan.

Well fitting masks that cover the nose and mouth, physical distancing, and all other safety protocols must be adhered to while in the building. If you would like to schedule a meeting time, please contact the office. Outside groups will be invited back into the building at a later date TBD.

Eastgate Response to COVID-19 Virus and Local State of Emergency

Eastgate Christian Church is committed to living out our ministry, Seeking God, Sharing Christ, and Serving Others. The current public health crisis, and the uncertainty around it, create challenges for gathering together to worship and care for each other. The physical, social/psychological, and spiritual needs of our community continue -- and may even be heightened -- during these anxious times.

You can find additional updates and resources on Eastgate's Facebook page.

We are back in the building as of June 6, 2021!
