Frequently Asked Questions

Your First Visit

We have all experienced the uncertainty of visiting a church for the first time. EUCC is a spiritual home to people from all walks and stations of life, believers and questioners, people from a range of backgrounds and faith perspectives, who come together to worship God, become more like Jesus, and serve God’s creation. We’ve tried to answer some of the most common questions here, but there is no better way to get to know us than to join us on a Sunday morning.

What do you believe?
Our church members share a variety of beliefs. You can learn more about our different faith perspectives here.

When is worship?
Worship services are held every Sunday at 10:00 a.m. Central in our beautiful, spacious sanctuary. We suggest you arrive approximately 10 minutes early to give yourself time to park and find a seat.

Where are you located?
Our address is 802 – 10th Street, at the corner of 10th and Jefferson Streets in Tell City, Indiana. The main entrance to the sanctuary is on 10th Street. There is a ramp to the left side of the main entrance, or a few steps up to the main door.

Where is Fellowship Hall?
Fellowship Hall is located on the far left of the building as you approach the church from 10th Street. The entrance to Fellowship Hall is at ground level for easy access by everyone.

What should I wear?
Wear whatever feels right for you. You’ll notice that on any given Sunday some people dress in their Sunday best while others prefer much more casual clothing.

Where do I park?
We have ample parking on the street or in the parking lot across 10th Street from the front of the church.

Will someone greet me when I arrive?
Yes! It doesn’t matter if you’ve been coming to EUCC for decades or this is your first visit – we always have a family, couple, or individual who is there to say hello to everyone who visits the church.

How long does worship last?
Approximately one hour. After church most Sundays you can join us for Coffee Time in Fellowship Hall.

Where should I sit?
We have open seating everywhere, including the main floor and balcony. Please find a seat that is comfortable for you.

What can I expect?
Our worship service is a mixture of music, prayer, scripture, and preaching that reflects our traditions and speaks to current issues in the world and in our lives. You can learn more about worship here.

What about children in church?
Children are an important part of EUCC. Every Sunday, about 20 minutes into the service, children are invited to sit with the pastor at the front of the church during our “Time With The Youth” message. At the end of the message, children are invited to attend Sunday School or participate in childcare, depending on the time of year. You are also welcome to accompany your child if that makes your child feel more comfortable. We just want you to know that even though your child is invited to everything, they should feel free to participate in all of it, some of it, or none of it! Children are always more than welcome to stay with you during the service.

Is there childcare?
Members of the congregation volunteer to provide childcare during the worship service.  Our nursery may be accessed through the door to the left of the pulpit.  Continue up the steps and turn right to find the nursery at the end of the hall on the right.

Where are your bathrooms?
Handicap accessible restrooms are located at the back of Fellowship Hall.  Enter Fellowship Hall through the left-most doors facing 10th Street (farthest from the corner as you face the church). Turn left to enter the hall, then turn right and go to the back of the hall. Other restrooms are located in the Narthex (lobby) of the church and outside the door to the left of the pulpit.

Are you wheelchair accessible?
The Sanctuary, Fellowship Hall, and Church Office are accessible, as are the bathrooms in Fellowship Hall. We also have assisted listening devices and large print bulletins for those that need them; the ushers can help you with those.

How do I become a member?
Membership at EUCC is an important commitment. Membership classes offer an opportunity to explore your own faith journey and integrate yourself into the life of the church. Please talk with Pastor JT if you are interested in membership.

What does membership mean?
Membership is a commitment to make EUCC your church home and get more involved. Membership gives you the opportunity to hold leadership positions, and vote on congregational issues such as calling a pastor, setting the budget, and shaping the direction of the congregation.

What if I’m not ready to become a member?
Members and non-members alike can be as involved as they want to in the life of the church; only voting and being elected to church office are reserved for members. We will never require you to join or be involved beyond your capacity; it will always be your free choice.

Do you have a Safe Church Policy?

Do you have a Safe Church Policy?

All paid staff and volunteers who work with minors are required to read and understand the policy, and complete the forms included in the Safe Church Policy.pdf file. Printed copies are available in the back of the sanctuary.
