New to Church? or New to EBC?
Whether you have been involved in church your whole life and are simply new to our church, or if you have never attended any church service, there are bound to be a lot of questions, concerns, and apprehensions. We hope that this website can alleviate some, or all of your concerns. We also know that sometimes there is more than a website can answer. If that is you, please contact us. We would love to email you, give you a call and chat with you on the phone, or meet with you in person. We know that church is an extremely important part of our lives and we would love to walk with you as you figure out where church fits into your life.

Services generally last about an hour. Its rare to go longer than an hour and 5 minutes.
What do I wear?
We do not have any type of dress code. If you feel like wearing a suit with a shirt and tie, you do that, and if you are more of a laid back kind of person, then feel free to join us in jeans and a t-shirt.
I don't know how to "do church"
At EBC, our worship service consists of songs (with words on a screen), and a sermon from the Bible. You don't need to know any special prayer or liturgical actions (like kneeling at certain times). If it is your first time at EBC, just come, sing along if you want, and hear the message.
Our church is your church
We know that this busy lifestyle we live today can create many challenges when it comes to church. Whether it is sports on Sundays, a car full of crying kids, or just a nervousness about going to church, we hope that our church is a welcoming place where you can comfortably learn about God and the message that He has for all His people. We hope that at least for a little bit, you can slow down and hear from the creator of world who loves us all. If you join us, we genuinely want you to feel like you've been part of our church family for a long time.
Why so many churches?
We also know that there are many different churches in our immediate area. There are small churches, big churches, and medium size churches. Some churches have a rock band and others sing from the hymnals. EBC is committed to the scriptures so our intention is to be a church that is described in the Bible. We preach the word, we break bread together(in communion but also at each other's homes), we pray together, and we try our best to spend time with each other during the week in order to build relationships within our church. We do believe that our church is more than just a building and more than one meeting a week. We also believe that our goal as a church is to take care of our church within, but at the same time, reach out to the lost in our community. We are a family but we always seek and welcome new family members to join our church family.
People aren't perfect so churches aren't perfect
For those who have been hurt by church or for those who have never been to church, we want you to know that no church is perfect. Churches are made up of people and sadly, people continue to struggle in all areas of life. Sometime those struggles carry over into the church life. Please know that we aren't perfect, but also know that we are committed to trying our best to be the church that God has called us to be.
