What is Worship?

Wednesday, January 11
WORSHIP: We use the term often. We talk about it in different circles, but do we really think about what worship really is? Rather than something we "attend", Worship should be a way of life. It should be a part of our family times at home and at church. Meet in the Worship Center this evening from 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM as Keith Haygood opens up a dialog for the who, what, where, and why of worship.

As a follow-up to that session, parents and guardians of all preschoolers and children are invited to join Pat Murphy, Director of Preschool Ministries, and Erick Lind, Children’s Pastor, on Sunday morning, January 15, on the north side of the Worship Center, near the Church Offices, during the 11:00 AM Connection Group. Simply check into your Connection Group and then come to the Worship Center where you will hear suggestions and helpful hints on how to make worship a meaningful experience for everyone in the family. Jot down questions you have and we will address these during our time.

Church Wide Prayer Time

On Wednesday, January 18, all students and adults will meet in the Worship Center for a time of church wide prayer from 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM.

Join us in praying for more understanding of God and His plan. Pray for more compassion for the people in EFBC’s Connection Groups, church, and community. Pray for more people to accept Jesus as Savior and Lord. Pray for more disciples developed. Pray for more missionaries to be sent into the world. Join us in praying for multiplication!

The Acts of the Apostles

William Barclay called The Acts of the Apostles the “most important book in the New Testament.” We have four accounts of Jesus’ life, twenty letters written by Paul, Peter, John and others, and the Revelation, but we have only one account of the birth and development of the Church. Without Acts we would know nothing of the continuation of Jesus’ ministry in our world during the period from His ascension to Paul’s arrival in Rome, that is, roughly between A.D. 30 and A.D. 60. This is your invitation to join Gary Ellis in a historical and bibliographical journey through The Acts of the Apostles.

  • Led by Gary Ellis
  • Meet in the Worship Center

Explore the Bible Series

Joshua, Judges, and Ruth

This study is open to everyone and also great for anyone who wants to get a head start on the Connection Group lesson for the upcoming Sunday morning Bible study or if you will be out and don’t want to miss a lesson.

God is moving. It is undeniable when we look into Joshua, Judges, and Ruth. Any thoughts that He is a disconnected deity floating aimlessly somewhere in the heavens is not what the Bible teaches. Instead, these books tell us that God is active and involved in the lives of His people.

  • Led by Jerry Miller
  • Meet in Conference Room A201 located on the second floor above the main Church Office.

A Time for Prayer

A time to pray for one another, our church, and to learn how to grow in your prayer life. Prayer is per EFBC’s mission statement, “We are a family of faith passionately Connecting to Christ.” God wants you to have a loving and growing relationship with Him.

“and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.” - Ephesians 3:19 NASB

  • Led by Ruby Moy
  • Meet in Room W101

Raising the Next Generation to Win with Money

In Smart Money Smart Kids, financial expert and best-selling author Dave Ramsey and his daughter Rachel Cruze equip parents to teach their children how to win with money. Starting with the basics like working, spending, saving, and giving, and moving into more challenging issues like avoiding debt for life, paying cash for college, and battling discontentment, Dave and Rachel present a no-nonsense, common-sense approach for changing your family tree.

Allah or God
