Equipping Classes, Men's & Women's Ministries



EBC offers three equipping classes on Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM. The goal of each class is not only to provide sound, biblical instruction, but also to foster fellowship and outreach opportunities.

The classes are divided into age groups in an effort to build stronger bonds between the members, though you are free to attend whichever class you prefer. You are welcome to jump in to a class at any time.

18–30s Class: W102 (Spiritual Disciplines)
40s/50s Class: W101 (Learning to Love the Psalms)
60s+ Class: Fireside Room (Aging Gracefully)

See Class Descriptions Below:

Spiritual Disciplines: This class explores the various spiritual disciplines (Bible reading, prayer, corporate worship, confession of sin, service, and other topics), showing why these disciplines are important and how you can incorporate them into your Christian life.

Learning to Love the Psalms: The Book of Psalms is one of the greatest treasures the Lord has given to His people. These sacred poems serve as a rich songbook, as well as a divinely inspired guide for our prayers. In this teaching series, we will study the themes, structure, and beauty of the Psalms.

Aging Gracefully: In this class, we will see that we are called to continue learning, growing, and seeking to honor God with our lives despite the limitations that come with age. We will also look at some of the perils we need to avoid as we age and, at the same time, challenge ourselves with the tremendous potential we have to still be the light of Christ to those around us.


Church Leadership 101:
Church Leadership 101 is for both men and women who desire to serve God’s people through leadership. This is a prerequisite for Church Leadership 201, focusing on foundation elements of leading God’s people.

Church Leadership 201:
A church leadership training class for both men and women. Excelling in these classes will prepare someone for a variety of leadership roles at EBC. This class involves reading, lectures, group assignments, and hands-on workshop projects. Church Leadership 201 requires the student to have successfully completed Church Leadership 101. Taught by Patrick Slyman.

Campus Map


Christian men face formidable challenges in today’s world. There are many obstacles that impede us from living “in a manner worthy of the calling” of Christ (Ephesians 4:1). Our desire at EBC is to encourage men in the outworking of their Christian calling, whether it concerns the workplace, home (as a husband and/or father), or their personal walk with the Lord.

Right now, we are offering a summer reading schedule of Disciplines of a Godly Man (by R. Kent Hughes), but no meetings together. Beginning in September, we will be encouraging all the men of our church to be involved in "Man Up Mondays." This weekly study is designed for men to get a spiritual start to our week. We will be meeting at 6:00 AM every Monday in the Fireside Room.

The women of Emmanuel have many opportunities to live out their calling in Christ. The primary ministry emphasis for women is our Titus Two ministry, which teaches and trains women to think and live in accordance to God’s design for us so that He may be glorified.

There are also several women-specific Bible studies offered throughout the year, larger-scale fellowship and teaching events, a midweek young moms group (1st & 3rd Mondays at 10:00 AM in the Toddler Room), and a biennial off-campus retreat. At any event or gathering that Women’s Ministries hosts there will be a bible-centered message for the women, as our desire is to encourage the women at EBC to become women of discernment who live out God’s word in our lives and community as ambassadors of Christ in a very lost world.
