After a thorough process, our elders are recommending 3 new members for our Elder Board. Next is an important phase in which the congregation has 30 days to register any scriptural reason they know that any candidate is not qualified to serve by emailing elders@eastside.com. Nominees will begin serving a three-year term in August.
