Welcome to our Local Missions page! We would love for you to get involved in serving our Jackson community. If you'd like to know how to serve in any of our local missions and see what opportunities we have for you please contact our offices below!
Andrew Jackson Elementary
Many of our Mission Jackson students attend schools close to EBC. We spend a majority of our time serving the school located closest to our church, Andrew Jackson Elementary. We help with special events, teams work on landscaping, and some even perform minor repairs. Throughout the year we have events such as a Fall Fest, a picnic on the school lawn for all to attend, a Spring fling to gather with everyone again, and a teacher appreciation banquet to thank all those who teach at Andrew Jackson. For more information, contact Yvette Nesbitt.
