Information About Our Services


Discipleship Classes

Our classes are 45 minutes long and are grouped by age, grade, and interests. Classes serve individuals from infants through senior adults.

Children's Worship

Bible-oriented activities are provided for preschool - K5 and 1st- 5th grade Sundays at 11:00am. At this level, young children are taught to sing, pray, memorize scripture and learn important Bible truths. They are instructed and led in worship at their own levels.

Adult Worship Service

EWC services may be vocal with collective praise as worshippers are invited to express outward love and adoration. The services may also include quiet times of waiting in God's presence for spiritual direction.

Worship styles will reflect a wide variety of personalities. Some are quiet and reserved; some shout with joy; others are tender and openly emotional during times of praise or preaching.

No sincere worshipper need feel out of place in a worship service at EWC. Each expression will blend without disruption into the flow of worship.

Music

Music is a major feature of our worship, before, during and even after the service itself. Instruments generally include piano, organ, guitars, horns and drums.

Any given service may include hymns, gospel songs, contemporary or worshipful choruses.

EWC makes music more than a performance; it's the music of worship.

Prayer

A special time in the service is devoted to prayer. Needs from inside and outside the church family frequently are made known.

The congregation prays together. All may pray aloud but conclude with a single voice, the worship leader or other designated person praying in behalf of all.

Anointed Prayer

Specific prayer may be offered for the sick. They will be invited forward to be anointed with oil (James 5:13-16) and/or have the ministers, leaders or other believers lay hands on them and pray (Mark 16:18).

Tithe & Offering

Tithes and offerings will be received each worship service. More than a collection to pay church bills, this too is worship and we believe you will be greatly blessed by your giving.

We believe giving the tithe (the first tenth of income) and offerings declares that God comes first. It recognizes His blessing, expresses faith, and seeks His guidance in every matter in life.

Sermon

Our pastor delivers a God inspired sermon each week. Sermons will include scripture reading and a message relating the scripture to our lives today.

The sermons are fervent, inspiring, and practical.

The pastor may close with an invitation for those who need forgiveness, rededication, or a closer walk with Christ. Often everyone is invited to come pray during the altar service.
