How are they to believe in one of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone to proclaim him? And how are they to proclaim him unless they are sent? As it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!’

Romans 10:14-15

From Sunday School classes to Small Groups, our adult ministry provides ways to belong to a community that inspires, informs, and encourages one another.

Small Groups

Nearly 600 men and women belong to Eastminster’s 60 Small Groups. Weekly, Small Groups study God’s Word, pray for one another, and serve the community. There are several types of Small Groups to join: Women’s, Men’s, Couples, or Mixed (for men/women any age). Led by member volunteers, each Small Group selects the day/time/location that suits their members’ schedules best.
