The purpose of the bus ministry is to seek wisdom and truth from the Bible and to teach adults and children about the love of God and how they must be saved by trusting in Jesus. This purpose is carried out by picking up adults and children from the community and bringing them to Sunday morning services.

The purpose of our music ministry is to aid the congregation in worship of the Lord during our church services and to prepare the hearts of individuals to be attentive to the preaching of God’s Word. This is done through congregational singing, choir specials, orchestra accompaniment and special musical programs performed throughout the year.


These ministries involve weekly visitations, weekly services for those who are able to attend and individual Bible study for those that need more one-on-one attention.

We have a Sun City Assisted Living Church Service on location at 3:00p.m. Sunday.

This ministry provides weekly visitation to those that are home-bound with CD’s of the church services provided. Some individuals receive assistance with the home-bound which allows the spouses or other care-givers to attend services.

This ministry is an important part of reaching out to our community. We participate in weekly door-to-door visitation, follow-up visitation with people who have visited our services and hospital visits. This is a special ministry in which every member of the church can be actively involved.

It is the purpose of EBCS to Provide a sound academic education based on God’s Word; provide a Godly environment; respect the teachings of God-fearing parents; present the Bible as man’s guide for salvation and moral conduct; and instill loyalty to our country.

Our church loves our kids including our bus kids, (K3-K5 and 1st-6th Grade) . We teach them lively songs, Bible lessons and stories during Sunday School and Junior Church. They enjoy games, activities, food and prizes. Most importantly we teach them about the Lord, how to get saved and how to honor God.
