Local Missions in the Rogue Valley                                 

Neighborhood Block partyRecognizing immediate needs right within the Rogue Valley,  Eastwood members are involved in loving their neighbors through friendship-making (koinonia), acts of care and compassion for those in need and hospitality in the out of the church setting.  Jesus Christ, in humility exemplifies a lifestyle of compassion for those less able, regardless of ethnicity or social status.   Eastwood lives this calling of service through participation in civic organizations/local agencies or volunteering in hospitals, schools and libraries.
