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 in its final stage!  On Sunday, July 2, we will move 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!


  • July Special Speaker
    Evangelist Todd Sivnksty preaches next Sunday. A special offering will be taken at the end of the service.

  • Prime Timer’s Activity
    Prime Timers will meet this Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. for lunch at the old-fashioned diner in Springfield given in the July newsletter. Lunch will be followed by a visit to the nearby LifeWay book store. Please contact Ron or Hedy Vann for more information and transportation.

  • Junior Camp @ Rapidan
    We will be leaving the parking lot at 8 am on Monday (7/17) and returning on Friday (7/21) around 3:45 pm. Parents can visit http://www.camprapidan.com/getting-prepared for any questions on what to bring. Be sure Pastor Ben knows if you plan to ride the van.

  • Administrative Instructions Regarding the Renovation
     The center aisle seats with arm rests are reserved for those who need to push off on the armrests to get up. Do not reach to the chair in front of you to pull yourself up as they are not bolted down.
     Do not use the port-o-john by the door of the back parking lot. It’s for construction workers. Use the one outside the main door or go downstairs to the one in the Fellowship Hall.
     Please do not bring drinks other than water or food into our new sanctuary.

  • Homecoming Sunday: Save The Date
    On our anniversary Sunday, October 1st, we will enjoy a Homecoming Sunday with a catered picnic on the grounds to celebrate God’s provision of our renovated building. Former members, including your children who grew up here but no longer attend EBC, will be invited so they can tour the renovation. If you want someone invited, please give Pastor Lapiska the name and email address. We will need responses from everyone invited in order to ensure we have enough food and seats.
