At East Pointe, we believe that discipleship is one of the fundamental roles of the Church. Our primary form of discipleship is in our Sunday School classes. Beginning at 9:30am on Sundays, you can experience fellowship amongst a community of believers, dynamic biblical teaching from our well-equipped teachers, and personal growth in your relationship with Jesus Christ. All of our Sunday School classes are welcoming and open to guests so come and join us this Sunday!
In addition to Sunday School, we offer life groups on Sunday nights from 6:00pm - 7:30pm. Life groups are designed for a deeper level of discipleship, growth, and interaction. If you are interested in learning more about the Bible or having your questions answered, life groups are perfect for you.
