What to Expect

You’ll experience worship through music, communion (1st Sunday of every month), and a Bible-based message each and every week. We teach instead of preach.

Services are roughly an hour in length.

If you aren’t able to join us in person, we live stream our services each week.

To read more about what is available for your kids at EHC, go to our Kids’ Ministries page under “Connect”.

Eagle Kidz Children’s Ministry (PreK – 6th Grade)

You’ll find a fun, safe environment for your children at Eagle Hills. Your child will go on an adventure with Jesus every time they attend with stories, songs, crafts, and more!

If it is your first time at Eagle Hills, please arrive 15 minutes before service starts to allow time for us to gather your information and properly check in your children. You can create a Kid Check Account here to help speed up the process on Sunday!

Little Sprouts (6 Weeks – 3 Years)

In our Little Sprouts nursery, our volunteers believe that God’s love is shared with each child through the way they are encouraged, helped, supported, and cared for. They will have opportunities for safe free play with activities, toys, and games at their developmental level. We want their first impression of church to be a beautiful and wholesome one.

Quiet Room

Not quite ready to have your child join Little Sprouts? We have a comfortable quiet room behind the sanctuary where you can see and hear the service while caring for your child. This room is also connected to our nursery where you have access to changing tables, toys, and other supplies. However, we love having children join service in the Sanctuary with you as well!

We have a free coffee/latte bar!  Donations for the coffee support our Free Wheelchair Mission.

Homemade cookies and desserts are served after each service and you are welcome to stay and socialize.

Whatever is most comfortable for you! Whether you show up wearing jeans and a t-shirt, a dress, or a suit and tie, as long as you are wearing clothes, you’ll be right at home.

You can expect our worship team to lead you in traditional and contemporary hymns at our 10 am Sunday Service.

No, if you are a guest or visitor there is no expectation for you to give money, but we do pass the plate to collect offerings at every service.  We believe God calls all of us to give generously, so many of our attendees express their love for God by regularly giving back to God.  We also desire for everyone to experience the spiritual transformation involved in giving.

About Us

Our Mission: Eagle Hills Church is a movement of people working together to grow disciples for Jesus Christ.  We strive to learn, love, and give God all the glory he deserves.

We teach, not preach.  We are a church that is all about living as a community and learning the way of Jesus

We seek to learn. We are a church that emphasizes teaching over preaching in sermons, classes and small groups.

We dare to grow. We are a church that is passionate about education, faith and traditional values; God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.

We strive to serve. We are a church of Christians in action; serving our members, community, and the broader world.

We choose to belong. We are a close community; warm, welcoming, and inviting.

The Bible is the inspired Word of God – 2 Tim 3:16-17

My sinfulness separates me from God – Rom 3:23

We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ – Eph 2:8

God loves everyone – John 3:16

The Holy Spirit works within me to sanctify me – Phil 2:12-13

The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are the one true God – 2 Cor 13:14

All I have belongs to God – 1 Tim 6:17-18

God works through the church – Matt 18:20

Founded in 1888 as the Boise Valley Methodist Episcopal Church, we have been doing ministry in the Treasure Valley for 135 years, under a variety of names and in several different locations. In 1990, we moved to our current site. It was a bold step for a very small church, but we wanted to grow and bless our community.

Since then, we have added to the building twice, but more importantly we have grown in numbers and outreach. Over 350 people use our building each day. We hope we are a warm and welcoming place for all our neighbors and we want it to be a loving home for all believers. Come join us at Eagle Hills Church.

Our beautiful windows were given to the church to glorify God by our members and friends. They were designed by our own members and created by Lindley Glass Studio.
