The Adult Choir is a group that comes together for the main purpose of praising God through song. Ages Senior High and above are welcome to join. The choir sings regularly in the Worship Services and for special events throughout the year such as Christmas and Easter Sunday. The Adult Choir meets Sunday evenings from 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm in the main sanctuary of the church.
The purpose of the Praise Team Ministry is to usher the congregation into the presence of the Lord with praise and worship through prayer and song. These individuals are not only responsible for singing, but they are responsible to teach and indoctrinate the entire congregation into songs of worship. Persons on the Praise Team Ministry are anointed to lead worship using the word of God. They minister in such a way that ultimately congregants are engaged in the worship experience. Practice are Tuesdays 7pm.
One of the outstanding opportunities for children at EBC is our Children's Choir. The Children's Choir is about much more than singing. It is about music; learning to read it, learning note value, learning rhythms, learning to keep the beat, and much more! All of our learning is presented in creative ways that make learning music fun for all our boys and girls. Most importantly, the children learn biblical truths as they are learning about music. These truths, coupled with music, make for an unforgettable combination! Practices are Sunday nights at 6pm. Lead by Denise Allman.
CHILDREN'S HAND BELL CHOIR
Under the leadership of Amy Griffin, our Hand Bell Choir is a great opportunity for our children to give praise to the Lord with instruments. The beautiful sounds of the bells are a unique addition to Christmas, Easter and regular worship services throughout the year.
At EBC we feel like Drama is a wonderful way to get people to feel, while identifying with the characters and their situations. Drama is an effective tool to introduce and support the message being presented. As the real challenges of life are revealed, needs are exposed, making the message better received.
Our nursery staff is committed to providing quality care for the children in our care. The goal of the Nursery Ministry at Ellisboro Baptist Church is to ensure that every child and parent who comes to the nursery sees and experiences God.

hands of god ministry
The Hands of God Ministry of Ellisboro Baptist Church is a support based program partnered with several area churches. Non-perishable food items are collected and turned over to the joint food bank for distribution to those individuals and families in need of assistance. Our goal is to help those who are struggling and not able to financially obtain the basic necessities of daily living. Whether the reason is from unemployment, sickness, or physical disability, our goal is to extend a helping hand during their time of need.
The Homebound Ministry's objective is to keep in touch with members who are unable to attend services. These folks dearly love the Lord and His church and miss the fellowship. They appreciate being kept up to date through bulletins, newsletters, and church audio recordings that are provided to them. However, it is the monthly visits, phone calls, and cards that mean the most to them.
The EBC's Men's Ministry goal is to provide the opportunity for men in the community to gather together for fellowship and service, and to share and strengthen their lives so they can be better witnesses of God's Word.
This team does small jobs for church members and the community. Michael Knight is the director of this team, and Fred Kiscak is the project director. Please see either one of these gentlemen for more info.
