East Gate Presbyterian Church is a family of believers in Jesus Christ located on Long Neck Road in Millsboro, Delaware.
At East Gate we believe that God is real, that He is great and that He can be known. Our belief in God flows from His Word, the Bible. We believe that coming to know God is the greatest thing that can happen to a person. We have received mercy, love and forgiveness from God and we long to see others come to know Him also.
Our weekly children’s club, Pioneer Club (grades 1-6) meets each Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. Pioneer Club helps children build a solid faith foundation. It will also help them by providing an opportunity to learn how to apply Biblical principles to everyday situations in their lives, memorize Scripture they have studied, and develop life skills in a safe and fun environment. At Pioneer Club, children learn that whether they are building a piggy bank, baking cookies or studying the Bible, God cares about everything they do.
Grow – East Gate Youth Group
Grow meets each Wednesday from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at the church. Each youth meeting includes a time of Bible study, prayer, fun games and activities and snacks. The goal of Grow is to know God through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ, to grow into spiritual maturity, and to lead others to follow Jesus through setting an example of excellence in living the Christian life. To know, grow, and go.
Group members have the opportunity to make new friends and interact with Christian adults who care about them. Group leaders have also incorporated into the group’s structure service to others. Whether it’s visiting the elderly at a nursing home or raking the leaves of someone who is unable, Grow seeks to help those who are in need. Special activities are also a part of group life. Baseball games, picnics, swimming and group retreats are some of the other activities Grow take part in together. If you have a child in grade 7 through 12 and would like to learn more about Grow call the church office at 302-945-5498 or send an email to the church office.
Growth Groups/Fourth Sunday Evening Service
Growth Groups are an opportunity to pursue growth in Christ in a home group setting on Sunday evenings. Growth Groups meet to study Scripture, pray and encourage one another in the faith. We currently offer four Growth Groups that meet in various locations. Groups meet each Sunday evening except the fourth Sunday of the month on which we hold an evening service at the church that begins at 6:00 p.m.
