What to expect

We know visiting a new church can make anyone nervous. Guests should expect a warm and friendly experience here at EBC. Our goal is for someone from our team to greet you, welcome you, and help you find your way around the church.

If you are new to EBC, we recommend you join us for our Sunday morning worship service. Here the entire church gathers to worship God through singing, praying and preaching from the Bible. All are welcome regardless of age, background, beliefs, gender, sexuality or race. Click here for a recent sermon.

What to expect

Please dress comfortably! You will find our church is more casual than one might think. Some of our members dress formally, while others dress casually.
