Celebrating 75 Years

Eastminster Celebrates 75 Years in Ministry and Mission

Psalm 145 verses 1 and 3 say, “I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever. Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom.” On February 1, 1948, God blessed us all through the establishment of Eastminster Presbyterian Church, and for that, we praise his name and his faithfulness. In 2023, we celebrate Eastminster’s 75th Anniversary in ministry and mission, and we hope you will join us in the celebration.
