Connect to a Life Group
Our weekly Life Groups are small groups led by gifted Bible teachers who bring God’s Word to life.
No matter your age or stage in life, our Life Groups help you connect with others and God in a fresh way.
Life Groups are designed to help you grow as a believer, to have victory in your daily walk with the Lord, and to serve Him with your own unique gifts and talents. You’ll also meet friends for life, people with common needs, people who will encourage you, rejoice with you, and pray with you.
To find a Life Group that is just right, you can start by browsing the list below, by calling the church office, or ask a greeter at the Welcome Desk in the Worship Center on Sunday Morning!
Middle & High School Students can join a Life Group at either the 9:00 or 10:30 hour.

Adult Ladies - Linda Creel
Teacher: Linda Creel
I refer to our Life Group as the island of misfit toys. Just a group of messed up women in various stages of life trying to do things the Jesus-way. We love studying together and we love and support each other in the good and bad.
Adult Ladies - Debbie Barnwell & Carol Sullivan
Teacher: Debbie Barnwell & Carol Sullivan
If you want to connect with a group of ladies who are empty nesters or who have adult children, then this may be the class you are looking for. Presently, the lessons are from the Lifeway “Bible Studies for Life” series. Each week we review the lesson and apply it to our daily lives. The atmosphere is very relaxed and no one feels pressured to read or speak unless they want. We are a caring/sharing class who listens to one another and prays for one another and others. We are always ready to help in the ministries of the church. One of our main ministries we have the opportunity to participate in is to provide food for different occasions. (We’ve had lots of practice!)

Adult Co-Ed - Leigh Ann Blackwood
Teacher: Leigh Ann Blackwood
Adult Co-Ed - Mark Hill
Teacher: Mark Hill & Charlie Dodd
Our Life Group seeks to understand God’s word and then apply it to our everyday lives. We utilize the Bible study based on Explore the Bible material provided by Lifeway Ministries. This study focuses on a book-by-book study through the Bible. Our goal is to be challenged each week by reading and understanding scripture; then individually determining what changes we need to make in our walk with the Lord so that we may grow closer to Him and mature in our Christian walk. Most of our class members have college age or young adult children.
We start our class each week sharing praises for what God has done in the lives of our members during the past week and then sharing prayer needs for the coming days.
Our class enjoys a breakfast fellowship during class time once a month, going out to dinner, and serving out in local community.
Mark and his wife Pam, have been married 39 years, have 4 children, and 9 grandchildren. He has taught Bible study for the past 35 years.
Senior Adult Co-Ed - Ron Allen
Teacher: Ron Allen
Our Life Group is for those wanting to study God’s word and then turn it into action. You will find class members singing in the choir, working security during services, greeting folks as they arrive for worship, counseling those who want to make a decision for Christ or join Enon, working in church wide events, and just sitting quietly with a friend offering encouragement and prayer. We are diverse in age, personalities, background, and interests but many would say we are “family” and have found a “home” together. If you like to laugh, love, share, give, and serve together, this might be your new “home”.
Ron Allen will celebrate 44 years of marriage with his wife Mary Ann in 2018. They have 3 daughters, 6 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren. Ron has been the teacher of this class for over 8 years.

Young Adult Co-Ed - Tyler Haynes
Teacher: Tyler Haynes
Our life group focuses on younger, married couples with the desire to learn more about God, ourselves, our families, and each other. Through the sharing of praise reports, burdens, or needs, we take full advantage of the opportunity to pray collectively for one another throughout the week. Together we read, study, and openly discuss God’s word while highlighting the application to our stage of life as spouses, parents, coworkers, and friends. Our group doesn’t take ourselves too seriously and enjoys a good laugh now and then, whether in the classroom each Sunday morning or during a time of fellowship on the weekend.
Tyler will celebrate 15 years of marriage to his high school sweetheart, Jennifer, in 2018. They have been members of EBC for almost 14 years.

Teacher: Bud Anderson
“You are the salt of the earth… You are the light of the world.” Matt. 5:13-14
Salt and Light… two metaphors Jesus used to describe His followers. Just as salt enhances the flavor of food, we as Christians should enhance the world around us through the faithful study of and obedience to God’s word. And just as light illuminates the darkness, we are to shine God’s truth into the lives of those around us and in the world for His kingdom and for His glory.
Join us as we study and apply God’s word to our hearts with a focus on impacting the lives of those around us and the world. Come and discover how to be “Salt and Light”.
