In 2018, the EastLake Church Network sent a team of volunteers to serve the people of Palawan, Philippines. We joined forces with another church network called, Philippine Christian Fellowship, to provide supplies, funds, and medical care to the surrounding communities. Our team worked directly with the church network through their Bible school, churches and orphanage (children’s home) called Door of Hope. You can check out our upcoming mission trips on our outreach page.
The Grill and the Thrill!
On February 1, we held our annual men’s tailgate at our Chula Vista location. What happened at the event? Well, on the advice of our attorneys, we can’t get into all of the details, but we made sure to cover all of the standard elements: mayhem, comedy, immature behavior, grilled meats, and corn hole. The night began with an epic tailgate in the parking lot, where we hung out, had fun, and ate a lot more than we should have. It continued with our “Man Up” event in the east auditorium, where we had great music, worship, and an awesome talk from Pastor James with his dad, Papa G!
If you were at the tailgate, you’ll remember that Pastor James mentioned that he’d post the notes from his talk for you to access online. In case you’re looking for those notes, you can find them here!
Make sure to join us for our next men’s tailgate!
We had a great time at Worship Night last weekend. Thanks to everyone who came out and made the nights so special. Take a look back at some of the sights and sounds.
On Sunday July 22nd, 30 people from Venice Church made the decision to be baptized at Venice Beach. We’re excited for them and are celebrating with them! Check out this video that highlights that incredible day.

Our backpack project at Torrey Pines Church was an awesome success as so many of us gathered together to stuff over 1100 backpacks with school supplies for children in Tijuana, Mexico. Thanks to everyone who gave of their time and resources to make this wave of compassion. We are so thankful to partner with such a generous church family that wants to see lives changed here in our community and around the world!
The transition from EastLake Kids (birth through 5th grade) to EastLake Students (6th grade through high school) is a big one! We wanted to help make that transition smooth and comfortable and help get your child excited for this next step! Super 6th Something was a special camp designed just for our incoming 6th graders. It was jam-packed with games, fun, goofiness, (and a few outrageous surprises) and was a great “on ramp” to life in EastLake Students.
Almost 400 students and over 70 leaders headed up to Pinecrest Camp in Big Bear for the 2018 version of Camp United. It’s a jam-packed schedule of games, teaching, music, friends, and faith. Check out some sights and sounds of one of our favorite weeks of the year!
Congrats to everyone who was baptized! It was so fun to celebrate with you as you took this step in your faith.
We had a blast hosting our first-ever EastLake-Con! It was so fun to gather together as a church network and grow in our leadership and ministry skills. We had such a great turnout and great feedback that we are already making plans for next year! Thanks to everyone who attended EastLake-Con and helped make our workshop sessions so productive. We had a blast dreaming, planning, and praying with all of you!
What a tremendous Easter weekend all across our EastLake Network Churches! We saw over 10,000 people attend one of our 30 services and hundreds of people make first time decisions or recommitments to Christ. Thanks to all who have given to Cannonball that has made our network so far reaching and so open to our communities.
