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.
Brad Lapiska, Senior Pastor
- Baby Bottle Drive
Help change a life!! Your spare change can go a long way to helping change the life of a pregnant woman or teen choosing life as an alternative to abortion. Fill those baby bottles with coins! And combine your giving with prayers for the women who counsel at the Sanctity of Life Ministries' centers to help women who are unprepared to face a pregnancy. Pray women will be drawn to the Savior and that they will embrace His value of the life in the womb. Your change can make a huge difference in the life of a young woman who is hurting, confused, and feeling like she is out of options.
