Carols & Communion is coming up on Wednesday evening, December 20th, at 6 pm, in the main sanctuary. Come bring your family and join us for this special evening of worship as we prepare for Christmas. We will share from the Word, sing carols, and have a time of communion together. Please note that this will also be our Fellowship Supper Christmas Dinner night.
Christmas Eve Sunday Worship will get underway at 10 am. We hope you and your family will plan to worship with us on this special Sunday morning.

We will gather for Worship on Christmas Eve Sunday, December 24th, but there will be no other activities. There will be no Wednesday evening activities on December 27th. We will have our regular Sunday morning schedule on Sunday, December 31st.
The church office will be closed beginning on Thursday December 21st, and will reopen on Wednesday, January 3rd. The January issue of The Binder will not publish until early January.
We encourage everyone to use this time to enjoy the Christmas holidays, spend with your family and friends, and to rest, reflect, and recharge for the new year.
The children of EBC will be making OCC boxes for their Thanksgiving mission project. They will be gathering items and packing those on November 15th. This year the cost of mailing those boxes has gone up to $9. The kids need your help by helping ship their box. If you would like to help sponsor a box by donating the mailing fee, please see Misti Hooper. We will collect donations from October 8th-November 12th.
THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR DONATIONS!!

Hurricane Harvey is shaping up to potentially be the greatest natural disaster in our history. Tennessee Baptist Disaster Relief teams are staged and ready, but they need your financial support to sustain what will be a prolonged effort. The Tennessee Baptist Convention has a long history of aiding in these tough times. Support the TBC Disaster Relief.
Contributions can be directly given on the website.
The North American Mission Board of The Southern Baptist Convention is also mobilizing and planning to aide.
Send Relief and Southern Baptist Disaster Relief (SBDR) teams began responding before Hurricane Harvey made landfall, deploying hundreds of crisis buckets and sending other supplies that would be needed in the immediate aftermath of the storm. Now we have been asked to assist in the care of up to 60,000 displaced Texans in addition to preparing thousands of hot meals and performing mud-out, chainsaw and cleaning services to restore survivors’ homes.
SBDR teams will be on the ground for months to come. Will you join us in supporting our volunteers as they work tirelessly to care for strangers, neighbors, families and friends?
Send Hope. Send Help. Send Relief.
