This year, Rockdale County is pleased to partner with Discover Point Church and Eastside Baptist Church to participate in this national event happening on the same night all across the US. Join us as we praise Jesus, play games, eat some hot dogs and hear the Gospel of Jesus (by FCA’s own Marvin Hammonds) presented to our community.

This will replace our ESM activities at Eastside for this Wednesday night (October 12) only. Regular Wednesday ESM services will resume October 19 at Eastside at 6pm.

Night of Prayer

Then, we will have each student write down the name of a fellow students that they sense God placing on their heart to pray for. Finally, we will have the students draw names of those present so that each person there receives a prayer partner as well. These 5 items (3 areas of concern and 2 names) will be what they take home to pray for all school year.

Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park


Hey Parents,

This Sunday we will be heading over to Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park in Suwanee. We’ll load up after church and head over to Arby’s for lunch. From there, we’ll drive to Suwanee and jump from 3:00-4:30pm. Once all the students have no energy left, we’ll bring them to you! We should arrive back at the Eastside campus around 5:30.

Cost to jump is $20 plus the cost of lunch at Arby’s. All middle and high school students will ride with an adult who is 21 years of age or older.

When we return, we will NOT have an activity night that night so please plan to pick up your students at 5:30 as there will not be any program at the church for them that night.

IMPORTANT: WAIVER MUST BE SIGNED IN ORDER FOR YOUR CHILD (under 18) TO JUMP. The waiver can be filled out electronically at the following link:

If you have any questions or any special requests, please do not hesitate to call or text me (or email me at
