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.

- 50th Annual Missions Conference Every Sunday in October
Each October we turn our focus to our partnership with those who take the Gospel to the uttermost parts of the earth. Missions is a heartbeat of our church and we ask all members to invest in the Gospel by putting a monthly support check designated "Missions" in the offering plate (use the envelopes on the back of the pews). It is through your monthly missions offerings that we are able to send missionaries with the Gospel to the ends of the earth. Please be praying about what the Lord would have you give to invest in the Gospel. This year we will feature "church planting" each Sunday in October.
2nd Sunday: Pastors Mike Osborne and Dan Lerro will report on Trinity church which we helped plant in Smyrna, DE
3rd Sunday: Pastor Jonathan Matias will report on Grace Church of Alexandria, VA
4th Sunday: Pastor Steve Kohnert will share his expertise on planting a cross cultural church as we seek the Lord's will about planting an Hispanic church within Engleside.
Offerings will be taken each service to support the missionaries who come to minister to us.
