Loving Our Community

2023-8-1 | Ronda Ooms

1 John 4:7 “Beloved, let us love one another.”

In just a few weeks schools across the area will be starting up for the 2023-2024 school year. Since 2007, ECC has partnered with Miller Elementary School in various capacities. That means this will be our 17th year!!! God has been faithful over the years, and we have been blessed by our participation in the school as we have sought to bless others!

1 John 4:7 says “Beloved, let us love one another”; our work at Miller is a wonderful way to live out that command. Have you considered being a part of our Community Outreach Team? Are you ready to do something different or outside of your normal activities? I invite you to start praying about joining us in the exciting ministry that God has allowed us to be a part of!

An immediate need is on August 7 from approximately 5:00 to 7:00 PM. We will partner with Bauer Community Center and the school to host a Back To School Carnival. It’s a great way to welcome the children and their families back to school and to help them get excited about the new school year. This year, the carnival is on a Monday so that it can be paired with Meet The Teacher Night at the school. ECC hosts the dinner that evening and has multiple game areas that we are in charge of. Help is needed with the food portion and with manning the games. Please sign up here.

Beginning in September there will be many ways that you can be a part of our outreach ministry. Opportunities are available to help in individual classrooms, the library, at lunch or recess, with afterschool tutoring, to be a mentor, or a MakerSpace helper. We will also be continuing our monthly family night meals at Miller and will need volunteers for food prep and serving.

We are so blessed by our participation at Miller Elementary School. It will be fun to see how God uses us this new school year. We hope you’ll be a part of blessing the wonderful staff and families He has allowed us to partner with. Please email me at rooms@ecclife.net or give me a call at the church office at 474-4842 if you have any questions. I’d love to connect with you to talk about what might be the best fit for you.
