From our children's ministry, to our worship services, to our care and support ministries, your giving enables East Shore to meet the needs of people who come here.
All members are invited to make a financial commitment to support our church. Many of us are drawn to East Shore because we have a deep longing in our souls to help and heal our world and to be the best men and women we can be. Our collective work as a church community strengthens and amplifies our individual efforts to offer help and hope. That is our church’s mission and vision—to bring peace and spiritual growth to people. The financial support of our fellow members and friends at East Shore deepens our personal resolve to do good works and helps us fulfill the core values of our own lives.
