Life Groups at ESBC

The Bible Study Ministry is literally the “Life” of Eastern Shore Baptist Church. Life Groups exist to reach out to people, to meet their needs and to challenge them with God’s word to become fully committed followers of Christ. We are committed to always doing whatever it takes to make room for one more. From the youngest child to the oldest adult, everyone has a place in Life Groups.

  • About Life Groups
  • Life Groups meet on Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. Most of the Life Group classes are co-ed. All children's and youth classes are graded, while the adult classes are loosely graded by age. ESBC uses Bible-based curriculum that deals with life issues of today. The Bible is our text book.

  • How Do I find a Class?
  • Please come by the Welcome Center in the foyer of the Sanctuary and a host/hostess will be happy to help you choose the right classes to meet all your family's needs. The host/hostess will also be able to show you to the class and introduce you to the group.

    If you would like additional information, call 251-626-5550.
