What's Happening at ECV

Receiving the Gift of Limits
Teaching Series

We don't like to talk about limits. We live in a culture that's all about more. THIS Sunday, we'll be starting a new teaching series, Receiving the Gift of Limits, that will  an invitation into a life that is fortunately, providentially, blessedly bounded, limited—and therefore truly free. It just might be the cure for the typical American holiday season. Check out the promo video. Be there for the series launch and Sunday. And invite a friend.
