Vision Gathering is an Adult (those out of High School) Mission Church within a church. Eastwood is our host church. We are here for those who are mentally challenged and special needs. This is their church which they can serve and worship our Lord Jesus Christ. Worship begins at 11:00 and ending around 11:45. During this time, we worship through music, offering and a ser- mon. Parents of these adult children may attend Eastwood’s services as well as a Small Group. We have activities throughout the year including VBS and outings as well. We do our best to bring God’s presence in such a way for their better understanding.
