How can a church grow yet maintain close relationships? The answer is small groups. Real life change happens in the context of relationships.

We believe God created us to live in relationship with others so that we can live the full life He intends for us. Small groups make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.

Our groups are as unique as we are, which means there is a group specifically for you. Be sure to carve out time to do life together with your Eastgate family!
