What to Expect
First time church visitors seem to have a particular set of questions in mind when they view our website before deciding to come to our church . . .
What are the people like?
We are born-again Christians who love the Lord and strive to serve Him. Our backgrounds may differ (professional to non, education of our children, places we're from, culture, etc.), but we desire to become of one accord by aligning ourselves under the commands and direction of the Holy Spirit.
What about the service?
We are conservative and traditional regarding our music worship and serious about our study in God's Word. Most of us dress in traditional church attire, but all we ask is for modest apparel.
What entrance should I use?
Use the side entrance located under the carport. The doors to the sanctuary flank the entrance foyer (in the hallway).
Who is the pastor?
EBC believes in an Eldership, and currently our Pastor/Elder is Bro. Joseph Kress, who is bi-vocational in that while he serves in his capacities at the church, he "mend tents and nets" in the secular world to earn a living.

What are the child care arrangements?
We have a nursery that overlooks the sanctuary. However, we encourage those who so desire to keep your children with you in the services as we are family-worship oriented, and want you to feel comfortable with or without your children with you throughout your stay.
