Portland, Maine: Eastpoint Christian Church held its first services Sunday morning at its new location in a former commercial building that has been transformed into a 92,000-square-foot church and community center near the Maine Mall. It includes a 1,600-seat auditorium, an indoor soccer field, a nearly completed gymnasium with six basketball hoops and a 100-seat cafe operated by Mainely Wraps.
Eastpoint Christian Church – Fast Growing Church
The fast-growing church has moved from 15,000 square feet of warehouse space on City Line Drive in Portland, near the Portland International Jetport, into a shopping plaza building at 345 Clark’s Pond Parkway that was formerly occupied by Bob’s Discount Furniture and HomeGoods stores.
Pastor Scott Taube delivered a sermon that welcomed newcomers and emphasized the building’s purpose as a gathering space to foster faith and promote nonjudgmental action in the world in the name of Jesus Christ. “This is not Eastpoint Christian Church the building,” Taube said, “but Eastpoint Christian Church meets here.”
Eastpoint Christian Church is a casual place where you can connect with real people. Grab a coffee or a tea in their foyer and then find a seat inside. Their services generally last an hour and fifteen minutes, and dress is casual.
During the service they celebrate by singing, praying, taking communion, and listening to a message. Their contemporary worship band lead them in songs, with lyrics projected for people to follow along. You can participate in a way that is comfortable for you.
