UPDATE: IN-PERSON LIFEGROUPS ARE BACK AT EBC!
After surveying the congregation, at this time we have issued the following guidelines to help us stay safe, healthy, and considerate of others all while allowing members to once again be together!
Please help us by informing yourself and your family to the following protocols. We appreciate your flexibility, grace, patience, and commitment!
*the following expectations ONLY apply to the LifeGroup hour and do not affect any protocols in place for our 10:30 worship time.
Mandatory mask wearing beginning with entry into the building: When you and your family come for our LifeGroup hour beginning at 9:15am, please be sure that all members of your family (Kindergarten and up) enter the building wearing a face-covering. You are expected to wear the mask upon entry, throughout traveling the halls, during the LifeGroup class time, and while traveling from LifeGroup classes to the sanctuary for service. Once in your seat for worship, the mask is no longer mandatory, though still encouraged. Additional supplies of masks will be available at Entrance A.

GENERAL LIFEGROUP INFO:
LifeGroups meet at 9:15 every Sunday morning.
At Erlanger Baptist Church, LifeGroups play a vital role in helping our members to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ and with one another. We believe that small groups are essential when it comes to living out our faith in community. We need help and we need to be helping others. Whether that's in the Word, in life, through prayer, through encouragement, in person or over a ZOOM meeting! We desire to grow in the knowledge of God and apply biblical truths to our lives... and we believe that happens in community!
Being a member of a LifeGroup at EBC means being involved in a group who wants to share in life’s joys and hardships. It our prayer these groups provide an environment where people experience life change through Jesus Christ.
We have LifeGroups for everyone (babies to senior adults)! We invite you to join us each Sunday morning at 9:15 a.m. Our LifeGroups are all using a common curriculum which is walking through the Bible as the events happened in history seeking to see Jesus in every account. Currently, we are using a study called the Gospel Project!
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it. (Proverbs 22:6)
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that they man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work. (2 TImothy 3:16–17)
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. (Colossians 3:16)
