Engleside is about people finding meaning in life by our relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We have recognized that God loves us and that He has a special purpose for each of our lives that will bring us fulfillment and happiness. We know that He loves you and is ready to bring meaning to your life, just like He did ours. In today's world of uncertainty and instability, our preaching and teaching emphasize the stabilizing truths found in God's Word, the Bible.
Our preachers and teachers strive to apply those truths in a practical way to everyday life. We enjoy learning how to read and understand the Bible more effectively. And our teachers are willing to tackle the everyday challenges of life such as marriage, parenting, stress management, and finances. Those who learn God's patterns of life in the Bible and apply them to their lives, learn the life-changing principles of divine truth backed by divine power. They find the answers to life's ultimate questions!
When you have finished visiting us on our web page, why don't you come and visit with us on Sunday morning and see what it is all about? We have programs for all ages. We have a nice clean nursery. We have Bible studies for toddlers, children, teens, college and career, and adults. We have a youth group for teens, a Christian Day School (Pre-K - 6th grade), and men and women groups. We have something just for you!
Come and get to know us, and let us have the privilege of getting to know you.

- Ladies' Retreat @ Rapidan – September 26th – 27th
Ladies' Retreat in the fall is so beautiful with the changing leaves and the evening campfire! It's a great time to get away from our busy lives
to enjoy God's creation and His Word. The theme this year is A Light to the World by speaker Miriam Marriott. See the bulletin board for registration information if you would like to attend.
- 60th Anniversary – October 5th
Please mark your calendar for our upcoming celebration of God's faithfulness as we celebrate our history and look forward to future ministry together at the 10:30 service. Immediately following, we will enjoy a picnic catered by Red, Hot, and Blue BBQ. Inflatable play stations will be set up for children as will volleyball and basketball nets. We will also have a tent to shelter our food and give our seniors a comfortable place to sit (all others bring chairs for you and your family). Please invite unchurched neighbors, if you live locally, but please send Pastor an email on the number of people who are coming so we can buy food for them. We are buying food for everyone in our phone directory and all regular attenders, so if you cannot come, please send Pastor an email so we don't buy food for you.
