Timothy Lloyd, The Second Sunday of Advent – Isaiah 11:1-10 Podcast: Play in new window | Download | Embed Listen →
Eastside is a two-year-old United Methodist startup church on the east side of metro Atlanta. We gather for worship each Sunday morning at 11AM in an eclectic, urban, Decatur neighborhood named Oakhurst.
Our growing church is a resurrection movement of people living across metro Atlanta’s east side. We consist of new Christians, spiritual seekers, doubters, cradle Believers and many who have felt ostracized by both traditional and contemporary, liberal and conservative forms of the Christian faith. At Eastside Church we believe everyone has a seat at the Table regardless of their political affiliation, race, gender, sexual orientation, religious baggage, socioeconomic status, or where they happen to be on their journey with God.
Our leadership embraces a progressive orthodoxy, a historic yet modern approach to worship, and the shared belief that we, in consonance with the earliest communities called Christian, are actually tasked to be a blessing to the world.
Our vision is to continue growing as a movement of people who are striving to embrace and practice the way and teachings of Jesus Christ. We believe that as we walk this path of growth, we will continue to become a healthy, strong, vital church community graced by God with the power, agility and vitality to participate in bringing about God’s Kingdom of love, justice, grace and redemption here on the earth.
Our mission is to continue the resurrection movement Jesus began 2000 years ago through our own personal and corporate embrace of resurrection. In doing so, we seek to partner with the Divine in ushering into this world the Good News Jesus came proclaiming – the news of a good kingdom with a good King – news that the Kingdom of God is here, and it is growing – and we get to participate.
Our address is 630 East Lake Drive, Decatur, GA 30030.
