EFBC’s Connection Groups (Sunday School) strive to help students be more deeply connected to God and each other. These small groups meet Sundays in the Student Life Center from 11:00 AM to Noon. Through prayer and Bible study students experience God together in community. Connection Groups are a place for students to ask questions about the Bible, life, and to find support through prayer and God’s Word for their needs.
Students meet in the Student Life Center on Wednesdays from 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM for worship music, Bible study, and activities. 7th – 12th grades can come “hangout” early (at 5:30 PM) for snacks and sodas. Endurance is based on James 1:2-4 which is:
“Consider it a great joy, my brothers, whenever you experience various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. 4 But endurance must do its complete work, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking nothing.”
Students, 7th through 12th grade, meet early at 5:30 PM on Wednesday’s for "Hang Out Time" in the Student Life Center before Endurance. Enjoy snacks and soda while the snack bar is open.
