EAST OF PUNTA GORDA — As Eastside Baptist Church in Punta Gorda celebrates its 50th anniversary in February, it’s fortunate to have members who were there at the beginning, as well as those who know only what the church means to them today.
Eastside — located at 6220 Golf Course Blvd. (off U.S. 17/Duncan Road), on the east side of town, as its name implies — began as a mission sponsored by First Baptist Church of Nocatee, whose pastor presided over one Sunday service at the mission. Attendees met at the community center in Tee and Green Estates.
