Introducing... our ECV Youth Ministry Intern - George Black!

This past Sunday, we were so excited to welcome George Black as our new ECV Youth Ministry Intern! Many of you probably know George either from hearing his awesome voice singing in Elm City Voices or on the worship team, or from his leadership in WyldLife Club (the Jr. High group that is part of Young Life New Haven, an ECV Partner) or even in his work with LEAP, a local youth development non-profit.

This year, George will be working with a team to start planning events and activities that will reach the youth (ages 11- 17yrs) in New Haven! He is currently looking for folks who are interested in dreaming and planning with him to build a youth ministry in ECV!

If you are at all interested in working with youth, please contact George for more info.

Elm City Voices
Rehearsals on Sundays starting on 9/18
2:00 - 3:00 pm@ United Church (downstairs in the Bradley Room)

As you all heard on Sunday, the Elm City Voices are singing, having fun and praising Jesus!

All Singers are welcome to join ECV's fabulous Choir (singing Gospel music, etc.) - Rehearsals are on Sundays at 2pm! If you love music and want to find a way to connect with people at ECV, this is a great opportunity to do that. Also, if you have musical friends from the New Haven community, invite them to sing with us!

All rehearsals will be held downstairs in the Bradley Room at the United Church on the Green. If you have any questions feel free to email Shyla.

 Support Famine Relief in East Africa: Purchase "Serenity" by Tina Colon Williams (at www.tinacolon.com)

As many of you have probably heard, the horn of Eastern Africa-- specifically the nation of Somalia-- is currently suffering from a devastating famine. According to NBC, 11 million (other sources say up to 13 million) people in the Horn of Africa need food assistance.

As we heard during Announcement on Sunday - In response, Tina and Juliet have decided to release a new studio recording of "Sincerity," written by Tina and produced by Juliet, and give all proceeds to responsible and proven organizations working against the famine in Eastern Africa.
