Outreach & Missions
At EHCC we believe that we have been placed in this world to live out the purpose and mission of Christ in bringing redemption and restoration to our world. We seek to impact our community as we serve and actively live out the Gospel of Christ. As a body East Hills offers various events that serve our community. These often happen around the various holidays and give the church an opportunity to serve those around us.
We also utilize our LIFE Groups to know our community and identify how we can effectively minister to them. In our LIFE Groups we host a collection of community outreach projects. Many of these projects have us serving Edgemont Elementary School with our Thanksgiving turkey and food drive and Edgemont Elementary School Christmas toy drive outreach event.
