Fall Kick-Off 2023!

2023-8-23 | Pastor Stacey Littlefield

It’s Fall Kick-off Time! Kids are back in school, vacations are in the rearview mirror, and we are coming to the top of the hill that is 2023 and we can see the next hill on the horizon—2024. Between now and then, however, there is plenty to do and take part in at, in, and through the ministry and mission of ECC. 


In addition to all the wonderful opportunities to build community and grow in Christ, there are plenty of places where you can support and contribute to the mission and ministry of ECC. Finding a place to serve is key to our spiritual transformation and to the completion of the mission. From teaching our children to greeting people on Sunday mornings to serving in outreach, there are plenty of opportunities. Please click on the buttons below for more information or to sign up to serve! 

In addition, take a look at all we’ve got coming up this fall! We hope to see you soon!
