Our EastLake Students High School group in Chula Vista has unrolled an amazing new series of events highlighted by the once a month big group gatherings. These meetings are designed for the students to feel like they belong and provide a place for them to encounter Jesus together. The first two big group gatherings for January and February were “off-the-hook” (which means really cool). January’s event was a GLO party which involved a ton of black lights and neon clothing, included awesome worship and a message asking students to identify what they want to illuminate with their lives. February’s event was a 90’s Hip Hop party and featured a DJ, a crazy mash-up of songs and a great talk teaching students to identify struggles in their life where only Jesus can step in and help them. These big group meetings happen once a month and will continue on March 11 with Onesie Night (which is apparently a thing these days). All 9th-12th graders are welcome and it all goes down in the west auditorium from 6-7pm. More info can be found at eastlakestudents.com
We had a great time on Friday and Sunday nights with worship night! Thanks to everyone who came out to join us for this amazing night of worship and celebration.
We had 78 people take their next right step of faith and get baptized after services last weekend. Whether you were there in person or watching on Facebook Live, it was an awesome celebration!
Photos from the baptisms can be viewed and downloaded here.
On Saturday, we were proud to host an anxiety reduction workshop in the west auditorium in which over 160 people found encouragement and resources to help battle with anxiety. In fact, one of the encouraging emails we received after the workshop said the following:
“I just wanted to let you know how grateful my son and I are for making this workshop happen. We left the place hopeful that a joyful life is possible for us because of what is offered to us as a gift from God.”
Thanks to everyone who attended the workshop and took the brave step of joining us for this event and getting tools to help with this struggle.
Thanks to everyone who made our EastLake Kids Trunk or Treat party such a blast! We loved seeing all the awesome costumes and unbelievable trunks. Relive the revelry with this video.
EastLake Church Tijuana hosted a Samaritan’s Feet event this Saturday. Samaritan’s Feet is an organization that shares a message of hope and love through reaching out to needy kids and providing them with new shoes. Over 120 volunteers gathered together for this incredible event, providing 450 children with shoes. Thanks for the time, energy and effort of these volunteers and continuing to impact our world for Jesus. Find out more about Samaritan’s Feet and the great work they do by visiting their website.
We had a blast celebrating our first ever EastLake Church Homecoming with all of you! It was fun to see so many of the faces and families who have made ELC such a special place.

We are so grateful to God for giving us the opportunity to be his hands and feet here in Tijuana! People helping people find and follow Jesus! On August 28, 2016 – 20 people decided announce to the world that Jesus is their savior by being baptized.
Our Middle School Students (678) took over Coronado Beach for their Beach Bonfire night. We had a blast playing games, eating s’mores and having a time of worship around the fire. Great way to kick off our fall session of growth groups and an exciting semester of 678 fun and spiritual growth
We had a great night at our EastLake In. We celebrated some awesome volunteers, heard the Olympic theme song 3,000 times and looked back at some of our church wins over the last few months. We also had a great time looking forward and praying together as a community. Take a look at some highlights.
