All groups must be listed on Churchteams — whether you want your group open online or closed online. All active EastLake Church groups must be listed on Churchteams. If your group is not listed on Churchteams (whether it’s public and open or not public and closed), it will not be considered as an active EastLake Church group.

Visit Churcteams login at https://www.churchteams.com/m/CTLogin.asp (or by clicking Client Login at the bottom of churchteams.com).

Use the dropdown to select “EastLake Church” as the church name and enter the password you were given at Host Training.
