Note from our Pastor:


The Lord keeps reminding me about the importance of HOPE lately.


Our Hope isn't in a plan or a program, but in the person of Jesus Christ.   Hope means, "confident expectation."  Here at EBC we want to keep giving out Hope to all who come through our doors.  Hope for those who are hurting.  Hope for eternal life through Jesus our resurrected Savior.  Hope for our hopes and dreams.  Hope for the days ahead.  Hope for families who are struggling.  We can live without a lot of things, but we can't live without hope.  Our hope is in Christ Who loves us and won't give up on us.  May this be a season of renewed hope for you.  I remind you of the great verse in Romans 15:13 which reads, "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."


​​​​​With my Hope in Christ,                                                         This is a song that has given me hope the past few years through these

       Pastor Bob                                                                     difficult days for all of us:
