Equipping women of all ages to live in the abundance Jesus promised in John 10:10.

ECC Women’s Ministry cultivates an authentic community where every woman is encouraged and equipped to connect more deeply with each other and to grow into a transformational relationship with Christ.

The Gathering

Saturday, November 7

10:00am-2:00pm at ECC or online 

Only $30

(Includes lunch from McAlister's Deli) 

It's All Under Control. Really. 

But we all have reasons (as if 2020 hasn't been reason enough) that can make us wonder. 

At The Gathering, author and speaker, Jennifer Dukes Lee will guide us on a journey of letting go, hanging on, and finding a peace you almost forgot was possible. Our prayer is you will discover a new way of living that will free you to be YOU, and experience the peace of knowing a God who truly has it all under control. 

Jennifer Dukes Lee is a storyteller and a grace dweller. She is the author of It’s All Under Control, The Happiness Dare and Love Idol. Once upon a time, she didn’t believe in Jesus. Now he’s her CEO. She writes and speaks across the USA to testify to his faithfulness and to make his great name known.

We are excited about what God will do during The Gathering on November 7!

MOPS meets the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of most months, from 9:30-11:30am. We’ll meet outside while the weather allows, and move indoors as the seasons change. We know this is an unusual time, and we are doing our best to meet responsibly by observing things like social distancing and wearing masks.

The NET Bible Studies and Groups

The Women’s Ministry NETam/pm is designed to create a place for women to be Nurtured in Community, Engaged in Scripture, and be Transformed through the power of Holy Spirit. 

Our study this fall is called What the Women Saw. What the Women Saw is filmed on location in Israel and taught by Jada Edwards, Bianca Juarez Olthoff, Sadie Robertson Huff, and Jennie Allen. Through time with other women and this study, you will discover who Jesus is through the unique perspective of women in the Bible. As you study the lives of Mary, Martha, Mary Magdalene, and others, you will learn from their faith and failures and be reminded that Jesus cared for and valued the women he was surrounded by. He equipped them, listened to them, walked with them, healed them, and empowered them. And he does the same for you now.


NETpm will offer What the Women Saw, Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8pm on Zoom. The study will run from September 15 to October 27.


NETam will offer What the Women Saw, Thursday mornings from 9:30-11:00am on Zoom. The study will run from September 17 to October 29.
