Frequently Asked Questions (and Answers!)

Before coming to East Hartford Baptist Church, you may have questions, hopefully we can answer them for you.  If you do not see your question, please feel free to call us at 270-298-3400 or e-mail us at


Q: Which building is the worship service in?

A:  In 2007 we outgrew the white building that is on the corner of Clay Street and Church Street.  We renovated our “Outreach Center” and it is now home to our worship services and our nursery.  All of our Sunday School and Children’s activities are in the “Old Church,”  which is the white building.  If you need help finding anything, our congregation will be more than happy to show you where to go.  

Q: What can I expect in your worship service?

A:  We are a very laid back and friendly congregation. Our praise band will lead you in worship with music that is modern and culturally relevant.  Pastor Jeremy will preach a message that is Biblically sound, easy to relate to, and in a style that you can understand.  We would love to have you be our guest!

A:  Our service times are listed below.

Q: We have children, do you offer childcare?

A:  We have a “children’s church” for our children and a nursery for babies and toddlers.



Q: Do I have to dress up to attend EHBC?

A:  While man looks at the outside appearance, we know that God looks at the heart.  We follow God.  There is no dress code at EHBC. Most people are dressed very casual. In the summer you will see shorts and sandals. No matter what, we hope you won’t feel out of place. You will find people wearing everything from jeans to ties!


Q: Do I need to tithe or give an offering?

A:  As a visitor, we would prefer that you tithe to your home church.  If you are new to the whole church thing, God asks that you give 10% of your first fruits. This is entirely up to you and is not expected of any visitor to EHBC.


Q: What if I’m “shy” or not very sociable?

A:  We have many different personality types at our church and just as God loves them, so do we!


Q: Will I be singled out if I visit EHBC?

A:  We will not pester you if you fill out the welcome card, but, if you do, we’ll drop off a welcome bag to say thanks for visiting us. We won’t make you stand up nor will we single you out. We’ll just say that you are most welcome here with us.
