Welcome to EMB

We're so glad you took the time to stop by, and we hope you'll make it a point to come visit us on a Sunday. Below you'll find links about when and where we meeting, and we hope you'll take some time to look into what we teach, how we're led, and how we're involved in our community and the world.

  • What to Expect

    • What Should I Wear? While our approach to God is not casual, our dress code is. On a given Sunday, our style is as diverse as our people.
    • What About My Kids? Bring them! We currently have two different settings for children (a nursery for ages 0-3 and a Sunday school class for ages 2 & up). When you arrive, one of our volunteers will help you get them checked in and nametags printed for each child. We take the safety of your children seriously and therefore require that each kid be checked in and out by a parent through our child-check in system. We believe it’s important for our kids to be a part of the church as a whole and to observe their families in worship. More than that, we love it that our kids actively participate in singing and praying.
    • What Is the Service Like? Our service includes a: Call to Worship (Usually a Psalm that directs our attention to God, distinctly and intentionally allowing Scripture to begin our gathering as the people of God), a Worship Through Song (We sing the truth of Who God is and What He’s done utilizing old and new songs), a Variety of Prayers (Confession, Praise, Thanksgiving, Pastoral, Congregational), a Sermon (a 35ish minute exposition of the Bible walking through a particular text of Scripture each and every week), and a monthly Lord’s Supper, and a Benediction (a short Scriptural prayer or pastoral charge for the congregation).
    • Can I Take the Lord's Supper? We believe that the Lord’s Supper is for baptized Christians. If you have turned from sin and trusted Christ as the only hope of your salvation and been obedient in baptism, you are welcome to partake of the Lord's Supper. While you do not need to be a member of our local church, you do need to believe the gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe that the Lord’s Supper is a unifying meal for Christians that both looks backward in remembrance of Christ’s death and forward to the day we will feast with Jesus again in heaven.
    • Do I Have to be a Member to Attend on Sunday? No. While we believe in church membership and strongly encourage all Christians to join a church as a member, our Sunday morning services are open to everyone. If you have questions about membership in general or joining our church specifically, one of our elders would love to grab coffee and answer any question you may have.
  • WEdnesdays

    We want to see people know Christ and grow in Christ. Discipleship is when a follower of Jesus learns how the gospel of Jesus applies to every area of life. Discipleship on Wednesdays happens in a variety of ways and in numerous contexts.
