Eastlawn offers many opportunities for fellowship in all age levels.
The Mamie Kimbrough Circle meets the 2nd Thursday of the month except for July and August. The meeting begins at 11:30 with a pot luck luncheon in the ministry center of the church, except for occasions when the group takes a road trip. After the luncheon, the members enjoy an inspirational program. Every project of the group involves its mission ministry—both local and international.

• A Call to Prayer and Self-Denial – donations given locally
• Pledge Service – pledges designated for mission ministry
• Homily by Brother Andy and lunch out
• Visit to nursing homes for singing and visiting, followed by lunch out
