Our Boards

Church Council

Eastside’s Church Council consists of our Church President, Treasurer, Secretary, and the chairmen of our other boards. This group is charged with establishing and promoting the mission of our congregation: to Grow in Jesus and Tell of his Love. This group meets monthly to make sure the ministry of the congregation is being carried out.

Board of Child Discipleship (BoCD)

The Board of Child Discipleship exists to help our congregation manage the wonderful gift we have in our Lutheran School. This Board helps to set the direction for the school so that we can carry out our mission to assist parents in bringing up their children in the training and instruction of the Lord.

Board of Adult Discipleship & Youth Family (BoAD & BoYF)

The Board of Adult Discipleship educates and encourages Adult members in their use of Time, Talents  and Treasures. They do this through overseeing all of the Bible Classes and Bible Study Curriculum to foster spiritual growth, promoting Financial Stewardship, training Members for Ministry, helping coordinate volunteers, providing opportunities for Fellowship, and helping new members become an active part of the Congregation.

The Board of Youth and Family educates and encourages Youth and Family members in their spiritual growth journey. They do this through overseeing Youth Bible and Vacation Bible Studies, promoting the Family Ministry to help familyies nurture the next generation, overseeing the Sunday School program, providing Christ centered educational classes, and initiating youth fellowship events.

Elders

The Board of Elders assists the pastors in caring for the spiritual needs of the congregation. This includes making sure the Word and Sacraments are being proclaimed on a weekly basis, that worship is done in a fitting and orderly way, and also reaching out to the straying or lost sheep of the congregation.

Outreach

The Board of Outreach exists to provide opportunities for the members of Eastside to invite their friends, relatives, and neighbors to hear the good news of Jesus. The Board organizes three different Vacation Bible School events throughout the year, including a week long Soccer Bible Camp. The Board also supplies welcome bags for our worship visitors.

Administration

The Board of Administration maintains the property of Eastside, both inside and out. They make sure that maintenance items are addressed and are also responsible for proposing the budget for Eastside’s ministry.
