november 14: Create change in our city by serving at-risk kids in our community

Eastside has always been about pursuing Jesus in these walls, worshiping together and coming together for services. But we also look outside these walls into the community, our neighborhoods, and schools, to find out how we can best serve the people around us. Unleashing compassion is a part of our DNA, not an event to perform, but a lifestyle to live.
— What is Serve Day?

Anaheim Projects: Serve local low-income schools in the Placentia-Yorba Linda and Anaheim School Districts with the goal of reinforcing the family unit, making learning fun and building relationships. We will be hosting events for students and their families as well as completing some minor campus improvements. Events at each school may include hosting fun family-friendly events, activities focused on science, math, art or physical fitness, and more. 

Anaheim Collection: Fill a bag for a teacher in our community from a low-income school. Grab a bag before/after any entrance starting 10/24 and return it to the same place by 11/8. Or drop it off on the Eastside Plaza on 11/14 between 6:30-8:30am.  

Fill your bag with:
8   Dry Erase Markers (Expo brand if possible)
1   Tub 75 ct. Disinfecting Wipes
1   Box 100 ct. Band Aids
2   Reams Printer Paper
12 Glue Sticks
8  Rolls Scotch tape w/ dispensers
12 Pencils
Want to make it extra special? Add a $5 Gift card to coffee to show teachers how much we appreciate them. 

Who: Family friendly, Connection Group friendly

When: Saturday, November 14

Time: 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. (times may vary by site)

We love because He first loved us” (1 John 4:19). And because we’ve experienced the love Christ has for us, we want to share it with others. Our prayer is that God would use Eastside in big ways to create change in our city. Will you join us?

Frequently asked questions

+ why are we doing this?

We gather in tens, hundreds, and thousands; Stretching out our hands to provide help and hope in equal doses. The church moves beyond awareness to action. It measures its successes not on the number of people attending or reached, but by the number of times it stepped out in faith as a body of dangerous believers, trusting Jesus to do for them what they cannot do for themselves.

We must restore hope to young people, help the old, be open to the future, spread love. Be poor among the poor. We need to include the excluded and preach peace.
