• Chula Vista

We had so much fun celebrating over 50 people who took their next right step of baptism! We were able to combat the rainy weather with a heated pool and covered patio and cheer on everyone who was making this outward declaration of their faith. It was so encouraging to hear so many faith stories from all ages of people who want their life to reflect their heart choice to follow Jesus. Thanks to everyone who participated all weekend long! If you give to Cannonball then you helped make baptisms possible. What a thrill to see people jumping in (literally!) and desiring to make waves with their lives. For more info on taking the plunge, including when the next baptisms will be held, click here.

Ministry Fair

  • Chula Vista

Donuts. Chips and Salsa. Crazy Outfits. A lot of signups! That was the scene on the lower campus patio following each service during our Spring Ministry Fair. So many of you jumped in to become part of the hundreds of volunteers that it takes for ELC to run. From working with kids to making coffee to taking pictures to inputting data, it takes a literal village of folks to team up to make this place so special. It was awesome to see new faces, new volunteers and to see our teams growing as people signed up to help in different areas. Thanks to those of you who have served consistently in the countless areas of ministry and thanks to those who just jumped in for the first time! Our combined efforts make waves that impact thousands each weekend! Well done!


A Night to Remember Prom 2017

  • Chula Vista

If you drove by EastLake Church Chula Vista last Friday night and thought you saw a massive party happening, you did! We welcomed over 400 honored guests to A Night to Remember Prom, which is an annual event for some special kids to have a special party. These kids get the royal treatment, from outfits to hair and makeup to walking the red carpet into the dance. Hundreds of volunteers show up to help make it all happen. What a blessing for us to use our campus to host this amazing event. Thanks to everyone who gave, showed up, prayed and served to make it truly a night to remember. Pictures from the evening are available here.

Students GLO & 90’s Party

  • Chula Vista

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

Anxiety Reduction Workshop

  • Chula Vista, Imperial Beach, Torrey Pines

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.
