We've gathered frequently asked questions about Eastside and tried our best to answer them all here.
When will Eastside launch?
The Public Launch of Eastside will be October 7th, 2018 at 10:00am. Hopefully we will see you there!
Where will Eastside meet?
We are committed to ministry in the local neighborhoods of East Dallas. We chose the name "Eastside Community Church" in order to communicate that commitment. Generally, East Dallas is made up of the neighborhoods of Dallas on the east side of Central Expressway/75 with White Rock Lake roughly at the center of the region.
For the foreseeable future, Eastside will be meeting at Conrad High School along White Rock Creek Trail just east of Vickery Meadows.
How will the leadership be structured?
Eastside will be an elder-led church. Since there will not be elders until we have a membership that can nominate, vet and affirm these potential leaders, the church will be led by a board of directors in the interim. Once Eastside has a fully formed membership, we will look to fill positions for elders and deacons and dissolve the current iteration of the board
Is joining the Launch Team "church membership"?
If you are a member of The Village Church, you will remain a member until Eastside has its own membership process and you join at that time. Being on our Launch Team does not mean leaving The Village, but it means being part of what The Village is doing in East Dallas.
