EastLake Church exists to help people find and follow Jesus Christ, and we believe that participating in acts of service to our local and global community is one of the most fundamental ways in which we can express Christ’s love to others.  But we also believe that acts of service are a key way in which we can better follow Jesus’ example through humility, kindness, generosity, and love.  Our efforts to serve others may be carefully planned or completely spontaneous, but they are all motivated by the same desire to better follow Jesus Christ.

Local Outreach

One of the ways we help people find and follow Jesus is by focusing on three things: loving God, loving people, and doing stuff! We encourage individuals, growth groups, and families to get involved in our local community. If you are looking for a service project, visit our iheartcv.com website for some ideas from our local outreach partnerships. And any time you participate in a service project, we want to celebrate with you! Take some snapshots of your group and send them to serve@eastlakechurch.com.

This year, we are excited to once again be serving our community through our “I❤” weekend, including I❤CV (Chula Vista), I❤IB (Imperial Beach), I❤TJ (Tijuana), I❤SD (San Diego), I❤Temecula, I❤LA (Los Angeles/Pasadena), I❤SLC (Salt Lake City), and I❤Venice. In 2018, the weekend will happen on October 27 and 28 and instead of meeting in our regular weekend services, we’ll gather in groups and teams to love and serve our community. For more info, check out iheartcv.com!

Global Outreach

EastLake Church serves the global community through the multiple initiatives through Cannonball. These efforts help to provide clean drinking water to people around the world, assistance to orphans and children in need in Uganda, and a way out for women trapped in the network of human trafficking.  To learn more about the initiatives and partnerships, please click here to visit jumpinmakewaves.com.

As a part of our ongoing Wave of Mission, we will be sending volunteer teams to serve in Baja California (Mexico), Uganda, and the Philippines in 2018 and 2019. Currently scheduled mission/service trips include the following:
