Pastor Brad LapiskaEngleside 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,
Brad Lapiska, Senior Pastor

Attention Visitors:

The complete renovation of our facility is in its final stage!  On Sunday, July 2, we moved back into our renovated sanctuary and fellowship hall.  The education wing of our church, which includes our Christian School, is now under renovation.  It will be completed by mid-August, giving us new classrooms, new bathrooms, and a new nursery.

However, to meet county code regarding our bathroom renovations, we must shut down bathrooms on all three floors for a short period of time.  Even with the shutdown, there will be an indoor bathroom in the fellowship hall and an outdoor, handicapped-accessible port-o-john.  Recognizing the difficulty this poses to our congregation, the following changes are being made for the summer until our bathrooms are renovated and opened back up:

  • Because of our limited bathrooms, we will discontinue our Sunday School program just for the summer.  However, we have moved our Bible classes to Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m. and feature adult, teen, and children's Bible studies and nursery for birth to 3 years old.  We have a great fall Sunday School line-up of classes planned as soon as our renovation is completed.

  • Don't' let this stop you from visiting us.  Please remember, we are very close to getting a beautifully renovated building.  Come visit this Sunday and let us take you on a tour!


  • Deacon Nominations
     In January, we will vote on new deacons to serve the congregation.  Members are invited to nominate men in our membership you believe have proven themselves spiritually mature and qualified according to 1 Timothy 3:8-13. Give your nomination to a pastor or deacon. Each nominee will be vetted for qualification and for desire, and if they agree to serve, will be placed on the ballot in January.

  • Labor Day Picnic September 3rd
    Mark your calendars to attend our annual afternoon picnic after the Sunday service at Pohick Park. An information sheet will be provided next week. We especially encourage those who are new to EBC to come and let us get to know you.

  • Fall Opportunities for Growth
    Our Sunday studies through Peter and Jude have taught us the importance of being deliberate and intentional about growing in Christ as the best defense against backsliding or even falling away from your faith.  Here are some fall growth opportunities for you to get involved in:


    Faith Bible Institute-
    a DVD instructor led study that includes classes in OT, NT, and theology each Monday night 6:30pm that can lead to a diploma. Starts August 21st. You may audit one class before the registration deadline of August 28th. See Deacon Cesar Odvina with questions or visit www.fbiclass.com.

    Wednesday Night Prayer Meeting- join us each Wednesday night at 7 for a study on prayer and learn to pray more effectively.

     Sunday School- each Sunday at 9:30 adults may choose from the following tracks:

    • Family Track: 14 Gospel Principles That Can Radically Change Your Family by Paul Tripp
    •  Large Group Bible Study: “That the World May Know” by Ray VanderLaan- each lesson begins with a DVD presentation of Biblical sites in Israel
    • Small Group Study: verse by verse discussion through the Gospel of Mark with historical insights


     AWANA- each Wednesday at 7pm a children’s program that includes games, Bible memory, and preaching from The Gospel Project curriculum. This study seeks heart transformation through exposure to the Gospel depicted in Bible stories from Genesis to Revelation.

     Sunday School for Teens and Children- each Sunday at 9:30 children are divided by age groups and exposed to lessons from the Desiring God curriculum that is God-centered, Biblically deep, and character building.

    Children’s Church- each Sunday before the sermon, children K4-4th grades are dismissed to receive a Gospel centered, doctrinally rich message tailored to their age level.
