Intro to Eastview
Those who are new to the church can attend Intro to Eastview right away and begin connecting with the pastors, beliefs and values of the church.
Intro to Eastview is a great place to ask questions re membership/baptism, and get to know others who are exploring whether to make Eastview Community Church their church home.
Life Groups, the foundation of ministry at Eastview, is where this happens and is designed to allow community to be built whenever people gather over common interests, friendships, needs, hobbies, projects, goals, studies… well, you get the picture!
To do this, Life Groups come in 3 flavourful varieties, providing an opportunity to love, learn, serve, reach out, and grow.
One of the primary ways we build relationships and cultivate fellowship with each other here is through a network of ‘Care Groups’. While we are joined to all believers in the local church, Care Groups allow us to relate more deeply with a small number of people. An integral part of our church’s ministry since its founding, Care Groups provide an important context for accomplishing a number of biblical priorities.
Application of God’s word to our lives
Merely hearing God’s word is insufficient; we must apply it to our lives for there to be fruit. Care Groups enable us to do this together. We seek to apply the Bible’s teaching, review Sunday messages, discuss Christian books, and use a variety of other resources with the intention of growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Pursuit of biblical fellowship
Genuine fellowship isn’t practical in a large crowd. Care Groups provide a place where we can build intimate relationships, care for one another, and help each other grow in our relationship with God.
Ministry to one another
God has made us dependent on each other, and Care Groups provide a context where we can minister to each other with the gifts that God has given us. Meetings often include times of prayer for one another and opportunities for individuals to exercise spiritual gifts for the edification of others.
Vision: A place for every woman
Regardless of your role – wife, mother, professional – the Women’s Ministry desires that every woman develop their relationship with Jesus Christ.
Finding your place: The Women’s Ministry creates several opportunities for you to meet and develop relationships with other women who are united in their Christian faith.

Recognizing challenges, reaching out, and having fun.
Seniors supporting seniors and seniors supporting others; Eastview’s Seniors Ministry or “Grey Owls” is all about recognizing the challenges that are unique to seniors, and creating opportunities for them to reach out and have fun.
And with all His abundant wealth through Christ Jesus, my God will supply all your needs.Philippians 4:19
The Grey Owls Ministry is excited about getting more of Eastview’s seniors together on a regular basis.
Reach out, and join in!
Building a network
Bottom line: the Grey Owls Ministry is fun for seniors.
Meeting on a monthly basis to enjoy the presentations of speakers, missionaries, musicians, and even personal stories from Grey Owls members who volunteer to share their experiences is helping Eastview’s seniors develop a caring network that is devoted to exploring the possibilities in this stage of life. All meetings include a refreshment time that enables seniors to relax and socialize.
Sometimes meetings of the Grey Owls focus on outreach, and other times it’s all about the social activity:
The Grey Owls take advantage of good weather and the outdoors with barbeques and picnics
Sharing their life experiences with and leaving a legacy for Eastview’s youth, the Grey Owls connect with the Youth Ministry in varied ways.
Every second Spring, the Grey Owls plan a road trip
Several times a year, the Grey Owls visit Eastview’s less mobile members.
