Community Happenings

See below some of the community events, fundraisers, and other causes our congregation is a part of and supporting!


apartment hunt

Matt and Jackie Roelofs are looking for an apartment to move to in late May. They're looking for something in/near Virginia Highlands, apartment or garage apartment, that is pet friendly! Email Jackie at if you know of anything! 


Nick and Meg Rodriguez, new RUF interns at Emory, are looking to move to Atlanta either the 2nd or 4th full week of June and would love to live in a neighborhood nearby Emory (or some areas further away such as Candler Park, Kirkwood, Edgewood, Decatur, North Decatur).They're hoping to find a place that's 1-2 bedrooms with a dishwasher and laundry and that would be pet friendly for that future possibility. They would love to find a duplex, small house, or even a separate carriage house/guest apartment next to a home, rather than an apartment complex. Their goal budget is $1200 per month but are looking to stay below $1400. Email Meg at if you have any connections.

David and Lena Entrekin are hosting a prayer hour for Tim Keller's City to City ministry on June 19th from 10:00 to 11:00 at 750 Virginia Circle NE. There will be coffee and we’ll start and end on time to respect everyone’s busy schedules.

IJM PRAYER gathering june 23, 10am-12pm

There are more than 40 million slaves across our world today. This reality is overwhelming, but we are not overcome.

The end of slavery begins with God's people. It begins with you.

Join us at the IJM Atlanta Prayer Gathering and boldly pray for the freedom of every child, woman and man being abused, trafficked and enslaved across our world. Experience powerful prayer and worship, hear stories from the front lines of IJM's work to rescue slaves and transform nations, and join a community committed to ending slavery and injustice—until all are free. Come prepared for a morning of prayer, unlike anything you have ever experienced.

young life fundraiser

Want your lawn mowed or yard raked? Several students from Druid Hills Young Life (YL) are trying to raise money to go to summer camp from May 27th to June 2nd. YL hopes to raise the funds by doing odd jobs that people might have available.  Examples have included yard work, house keeping, splitting firewood, babysitting, and car washes.  Generally anything you can expect a teenager to be able pull off.

If you have any odd jobs available for students and would like to help, please contact Elise Hicks (

If you don't currently have any odd jobs, but are interested in donating, please email Elise also. We would love all our kids to be able to get to camp to hear of Christ's love.

The way Young Life does fundraising, there will be at least one YL leader (an adult from the community) and one YL student for most jobs.


soap equals hope campaign

In Matthew 25:32-46 we learn about how when we serve the least of these, including the prisoners of this world, we serve Christ. Our own Biren Patel has been serving with Kairos ministries who brings the Gospel of Christ to Georgia’s prisoners with the hope of transforming lives. One way to restore the dignity of these prisoners is to offer them a good bar of soap. Biren is asking that people from City Church Eastside consider purchasing a bar of Miss Casey’s Soap and Co craft soap, made locally here in the Atlanta. For each bar of soap purchased, Miss Casey will donate a bar to Kairos. If you have any questions please contact Biren at and visit Miss Casey’s Facebook page for more information. Soap is needing to be distributed soon so it would be helpful if you made your purchases in the next month!
