Welcome to Calvary Chapel Eastside! We know that visiting a new church can be a little confusing, so we've compiled a list of commonly asked questions to help you feel more comfortable.
If you have additional questions, you can visit the Information Booth in the foyer on Sunday or contact the Church Office during the week.
+ When are services?
Our worship services are every Sunday at 10am in the Sanctuary. On Wednesday nights at 7pm we provide nursery for the wee ones, AWANA for children, Youth Group for Jr and Sr High, as well as adult ministries.
+ What should I wear?
The people who join us for service wear a wide variety of outfits from jeans to their "Sunday Best." The bottom line is that you've chosen to join us for service and we are thrilled to have you with us! Wear what you feel comfortable in!
+ How do I get to Calvary Chapel Eastside?
Take exit number 13 off of I-90. Go south on Lakemont Blvd for about 1.6 miles. At the light, turn right onto 164th Ave SE. We are the first property on the right hand side. (Exterior Flyby)
+ Where should I park?
We have plenty of parking spaces on site, including a parking garage located underneath the building.
+ Where do my children go?
As well as teaching from the Bible, live worship, and fellowship, Calvary Chapel Eastside provides age appropriate teaching for all your children's needs. We have nursery, 2 & 3 year old, and 4 & 5 year old classes on the first floor in rooms 101, 102, and 103, directly off of the Sanctuary. We have 1st grade through 6th grade upstairs in rooms 203 through 205, though corporate worship for these grade levels starts at 10am in room 201. (Jr high joins the main service for worship and then meets in room 202 and senior high joins the adults in the main sanctuary.)
All children need to be signed in through KidCheck stations on the first floor at the lobby info booth. Parents set up accounts through the KidCheck web site at home on any computer or smart device. You can also use your smart phone or smart device to check your child in before you arrive at church using the mobile app.
After signing in your child to their class, a child badge for each child and a guardian receipt will be printed out on the label writer. Children need to wear their badge the entire time they are in the children's wing and parents MUST have a guardian receipt to enter the children's wing and pick up their child(ren). We take the safety of our kids very seriously and hope that our procedures will give parents a strong sense of security.
+ Am I expected to put money in the offering basket?
There is no cost to attend our worship services and giving is ultimately between you and the Lord. However, since giving is an important act of faith and worship, we give you the opportunity to participate by receiving tithes and offerings. Malachi 3:10
+ What is a Calvary service like?
Our goal at Calvary is loving Jesus, loving His Word, and loving people as a way of life. Our services, therefore, are focused on understanding and applying the whole counsel of God through a verse-by-verse study of the Bible. We begin services with songs of praise and adoration, followed by a meaningful message of Christ's redeeming love.
+ How can I get involved at Calvary?
There are a multitude of different ways to serve! Just talk to one of our ministry leaders to see how you can help or contact the Church Office and we'll get you connected to the right person!
