EBC volunteers traveled to Boone NC to the OCC warehouse to pack shoe boxes. While working at OCC we got to hear testimonies from young adults that had been recipients of shoe boxes years ago and the impact that had on their lives.
EBC Middle School and High School Sunday School classes visited Asheboro to go ziplining. It was a brisk sunny afternoon, a great day to spend outside in the woods!!!
It was a GREAT turnout for our OCC packing party!!! Lots of fun and fellowship. Loved seeing all the kids excited about packing the shoe boxes.

15-DAY FAMILY EASTER FOCUS
In the days prior to Easter, the world will celebrate the life, death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. To help you and your family prepare for this special season, a 15-day reading plan, discussion guide, prayer prompts and suggested activities are provided in this booklet. The reading plan includes 15 days of reading followed by discussion questions to help foster conversation. As an added bonus, there are optional activities to use every day. The discussion questions are broken into three age-appropriate categories:
• Younger children: preschool age
• Older children: elementary school age
• Teenager: middle and high school age

All the hype and hoopla about who could make the best biscuits came to a head Saturday morning at the Caring Kitchen in Burlington. In one corner you had Rick, with everything laid out meticulously and ready to take the top prize. In the other corner you had Pastor Hal, with everything he needed to bake up a winning batch. So who was the winner??? Neither one (HAHA)!!! It was Debbie who stepped in with a loaf of sour dough bread that took 1st prize. The funny quote of the day goes to Rick: “3rd place got to go home with 1st place, so I’m the winner!”. Guess you can’t argue with Rick on that!

As all of EBC knows our brother David had been in the hospital having issues with his lungs. He is definitely making progress and we continue to pray he can go home soon. We sure do miss seeing him and Marie at EBC!!!
During our Jan 27 morning worship service Pastor Hal shared some notes on “Becoming a Welcoming Church”:
Unity – Question, Evaluate, Plan,……. Move forward
1. Welcoming: Greeting from 1st impression, to parking lot, to front door, to every door, to information available, to pew, to pastor.
5. Nursery: Facilities / Space, playground, workers
