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, 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.

His Servant,
Ben Smith, Pastor



  • ECS Head of Household Offering Today
    Our teachers at Engleside Christian School work for wages that are far un-der their public-school counterparts. We take on offering every year for our teachers whose income provides the main source of their household in-come. Please consider how God would like to use you to help provide for this need. The offering will be taken at the end of the service today.

  • Dinner Groups Fall 2018
    Are you new to the church or just looking for ways to get to know the Eng-leside family? We have the answer: join a dinner group. This is a great way to get to know people in the church family who you may not get to interact with otherwise. The groups meet three times over a four month period, and the goal is to share what God is doing in your life with others and to build deeper relationships within our church family. Sign up continues until August 26th. Fill out the form in the bulletin and leave it in the basket on the table in the lobby.
