We cooperate together for the benefit of each congregation and the Kingdom of God.  As you explore our Mission Statement, you will catch a glimpse of what we are about.

ELBA Meetings and Ministry News


September is Suicide Awareness Month!


September is National Suicide Prevention Month and it has become crucial that we are aware of ways to prevent suicide from happening. We have lost so many of our loved ones due to suicide; mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, cousins, other relatives, friends, co-workers, church members, and countless others who meant so much to us. The love and memories of them will forever be in our hearts.  “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” – John 3:16
