New here? Here are some commonly asked questions to get you started.

Whoever you are and wherever you are on life’s journey, you are always welcome here. Although we cannot yet say that we are officially an Open and Affirming UCC, we are in the process of discernment as a congregation.

Worship services are held every Sunday at 10:00 a.m. Central time in our beautiful, spacious sanctuary. We recently revamped part of our sanctuary to provide more space for families with young children.  Equipped with rocking chairs and quiet toys, we refer to it as our Family Quiet Zone.  It is located in the rear of the sanctuary. We suggest you arrive approximately ten minutes early to give yourself time to park and find a seat.

Our church is located at 802 – 10th Street, at the corner of 10th and Jefferson Street 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 that leads to a front door. There are a few steps up to the main door.

Our Church Office is located at our Jefferson Street entrance and our Fellowship Hall is located beside our parking lot on 10th Street.

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.  There is a parking lot beside Fellowship Hall.

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.

We have ample parking on the street, in the parking lot across 10th Street from the front of the church or in the parking lot beside Fellowship Hall.

Yes!  It doesn’t matter if you’ve been coming to EUCC for decades or this is your first visit – we always have someone there to say hello to everyone who visits our church each Sunday.  Please come join us for worship and fellowship.

Approximately one hour.  On occasion there are meals after worship to which everyone is invited.

We have open seating everywhere, including the main floor and balcony.  Please find a seat that is comfortable for you.  Remember, we welcome children and families and have created a Family Quiet Zone in our sanctuary to give families more space to be in worship with their young children.

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.

Children are an important part of EUCC.  We usually have a Children’s Bulletin and there are activity bags available in the Narthex for children to use during worship if they like to keep busy.  We have recently dedicated part of the sanctuary as a Family Quiet Zone.  Filled with rocking chairs and quiet toys, families with young children will find more space to enjoy worship together.

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 led by our church volunteers to the Sunday School classroom for an age-appropriate Faith Formation class.

You are also welcome to accompany your child up front and to the Faith Formation class 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.

We currently do not offer childcare during our service, but we do have a nursery available if you need a quiet place to take your child for a diaper change or a calming story.  Our nursery may be accessed through the door to the left of the pulpit in the Sanctuary.  Continue up the steps and turn right to find the nursery at the end of the hall on the right.

Remember, you are always welcome to sit in our Family Quiet Zone in the sanctuary which is equipped with rocking chairs and quiet toys.  This area provides more space for the families and youngest church goers to move and experience worship together.

Handicap accessible restrooms are located at the back of Fellowship Hall and in the Narthex (lobby) of the Sanctuary.  Enter Fellowship Hall through the double glass doors facing 10th Street.  Turn left to enter the hall, then turn right and go to the back of Fellowship Hall where the restrooms are located.  Other restrooms are located in the Narthex (lobby) of the main church building and outside the door to the left of the pulpit in the Sanctuary.

The Sanctuary, Fellowship Hall and Church Office are accessible, as are the bathrooms in Fellowship Hall.  A chairlift is available to access the second story Library and Chapel from the street level of Fellowship Hall.

We have assisted listening devices and large print bulletins for those that need them; the ushers can help you with those.

EUCC has many committees that do everything from preparing the sanctuary for worship to providing community meals to teaching our youth to lending hospital equipment to the community.  We welcome everyone to get involved in the life of our church.  Contact the Church Office at 812.547.7059 for more information about how you can get involved.

We have a variety of teams that support church life in various ways.  Are you creative?  Technically savvy?  Great with kids?  All of the above?  If you want to get more involved in church life, contact the church office for more information.

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 our pastor if you are interested in membership.

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.

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.

EUCC is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment in which all people can learn about and experience God’s Love.  In order to promote this goal we have created a Safe Church Policy that took effect on 1/1/2017.  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.

In order to keep our children safe, we also ask that parents complete permission forms for our church to include images of their children on our printed material, website, Facebook and on our live stream services.

Please contact us by email at eucctcinfo@gmail.com or call us at (812) 547-7059.  Better yet, stop by the office Monday-Thursday 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. or 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and introduce yourself.   We look forward to meeting you and getting to know you better.
