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.

We will host FPU in the auditorium each Wednesday night during the
summer. Those who do not attend FPU are welcome to attend

the importance of prayer and how to pray, and then the group will
pray together for our church and each other's needs. Young couples
who would like to be a part of a Community Group that meets on a
couple of Friday's each month should contact Pastor Ben for the Summer schedule and for more information.
- NEW Online Giving Available on Our Website!
By popular request, we have made it possible for you to give online
should you so desire. Please go to our website and follow the
instructions under Online Giving. Please let Pastor Lapiska or Victor
Soto (treasurer) know if you have any problems. Please note that it
is also possible to give regularly with an electronic check through
your bank. Offerings will continue to be taken each Sunday morning
service for those who prefer to continue to give by check. A very
special "thank you" to Victor Soto and Gerry Dineros for setting this
up for us.
- Mark your Calendars!
On Sunday, October 5th we will have a celebration for our 60th Anniversary as a church. A morning worship service followed by an on-grounds catered picnic is planned. There will also be special play stations for children to enjoy as well as our playground. We are not planning this as a homecoming event, just a celebration with our current church family of God's past faithfulness as we look forward to future ministry together. This even will launch us into our 50th Annual Missions Conference focused on the theme of USA church planting.
- Upcoming Missionary Speakers:
August 10th – Tom and Melissa Kendall, former Air Force General Surgeon, are headed to Togo, Africa as a Medical Missionary.
