The congregation of ESBC values the opportunities that we have to minister to college students with the campus of WCU being a short distance away. Students have many different options as to places of worship to attend. There are churches with contemporary style worship and traditional. There are large churches and small. We are a congregation of 175 members who still sing with hymnals and are led in worship by an adult choir. ESBC welcomes any college student who is looking for a church that will support them while away from home and family. ESBC has a watchcare ministry that allows students the option of joining the church and becoming part of a church family for the period of time that they are in our community. Students are involved in various aspects of the ministries of ESBC such as singing in the choir, helping with youth/children activities, and participating in small group Bible studies. Anna Worley, ESBC Youth Minister, has a class each Sunday morning at 9:45 am for high school/college students.
