Since the fall, we have been exploring our ECC Touchstones of Welcome, Transformation, and Presence from different points of view. Most recently, we have used our Wednesday evening Community Gatherings to foster conversations around each of them. Beginning February 12 and for six weeks after that, we will shift gears a bit, even as we continue exploring each of the Touchstones. Each week we will look at some aspect of one of the Touchstones on a more practical level. We’ll spend two weeks with each Touchstone.
While the exact details for each week are still coming together, we wanted to give you a sense of where we will be going and encourage you to make time to join us. Even if you cannot stay for the learning opportunities, we’d love to have you join us for the time to fellowship around the table with one another. Dinner is served from 5:45-6:30pm. Programming for all ages and our further journey into the Touchstones takes place from 6:30-8:00pm.
2.12.20 and 2.19.20 // Welcome
Guest Presenter Pastor Rodney Lynch, Director of the Baptist Student Foundation on Purdue’s campus, will lead us in a two-week conversation on Welcome as it pertains to race. On the second week, February 19, brothers and sisters from Second Baptist Church are planning to join us to enrich our fellowship, conversation, and understanding.
2.26.20 and 3.04.20 // Transformation
On February 26, we will hold an interactive Ash Wednesday Service at 7:00 p.m. in the sanctuary. The following week, March 4, Beth and Dave Booram, authors of the book, When Faith Becomes Sight: Opening Your Eyes to God’s Presence All Around You, will speak to us on spiritual formation.
3.11.20 and 3.18.20 // Presence
We are currently working on two weeks on which we will talk about what it means for us to be present to our neighbors with the good news of Jesus Christ, in word and deed, in a very practical manner. We will keep you posted as things develop.
