We bear fruit together as we interact with our neighbors and friends in our community
We are excited to announce that over the course of the next two years we are building a partnership with Naomi’s House, a ministry of The Moody Church. Their mission is to “provide lifelong hope and healing through long-term, residential, comprehensive care for women who have suffered sexual exploitation.” In the immediate future, we are partnering with them in prayer and awareness of the issue. As they develop, we will partner with them in more tangible ways through financial support and practical support. If you want to know more about this ministry, take a look at their website ( http://www.moodychurch.org/naomis-house/) or talk with Katie Stromberg or Dru McLeland (firstname.lastname@example.org). Come join the wonderful women of ECCH as we flourish together in Jesus Christ and invite others to do the same this fall.
The Final Quarter
A group for retired men meets each Wednesday at 8:00 a.m. for breakfast, and lively discussion about relevant topics…they will often bring in special speakers, look at God’s Word, share their “stories” etc. All Are Welcome!
Senior Lunch Specials
Every 2nd Tuesday 11am at church there will be a interesting program followed by a delicious hot lunch. Sign up in the church office.
Men’s Fraternity: Thursdays at 6:00 a.m. through March
Do you want to be a better father, husband, leader at home, at work or in the community? Men’s Fraternity is effectively a leadership class for men designed by Rob Lewis, which uses all kinds of material (including the Bible) to instruct men via time-tested ways on how to lead courageously. Show up each Wednesday morning at 6am with a pen – we’ll provide a book – grab coffee, a bagel and say hello to friends. At 6:15am sharp, grab a seat at a table and we start a 30 minute DVD; after DVD, group discussion with the other men at your table. We hard-stop at 7:20am so you can get to work. Many guys work in the city and either take the 7:40 direct train, or drive downtown together. There are downloads you can watch if you miss a session.
