Welcome Center

Friendly greeters staff our Welcome Center every Sunday morning and will be happy to answer any questions you may have about EBC. They can also help you & your family get to a Sunday School class that will be just right for you. The Welcome Center is open 9:00-11:00 on Sunday mornings. Signs on the campus can direct you to the Welcome Center, which is located in the Church Office building.

Worship Styles

Our Sunday 8:30 am service is more traditional in style and our 11:00 service is a blend of traditional & contemporary styles.  Our Wednesday night 6:30 service is more contemporary in style.

Sunday school

We have small group bible studies on Sunday mornings at 9:45 for people of all ages, infants to senior adults.  Our children’s and youth classes are grouped by ages and our adult groups are only loosely grouped by ages.  You can try several classes to find the one that’s right for you.


For men, attire ranges from coat & tie to kakhis and a knit shirt.  For women, attire ranges from dresses to pants & a blouse.  Our Wednesday night service is usually more casual.

Children and youth

We provide care to children ages birth-3 during both of our Sunday morning services.  We have Children’s Church for 4 & 5 year olds during the 11:00 service.  We also have bible study groups (Sunday School) for children of all ages and for youth at 9:45.  Our friendly staff at the Children and Youth Welcome Center will help you get your children checked in and settled in to their respective groups.
