What's Happening at ECV

A Night of Music
This Sunday
November 17th, 7pm
United Church on the Green 
(where we have our Sunday service)
Sunday evening at 7pm, ECV is hosting a concert with JuDopeGroup. JuDopeGroup is a band led by ECVer Julian Reid that features ECVer Tina Colón, bassist Hans Bilger and drummer Ethan Schneider. The concert will showcase a unique blend of original songs and re-arranged covers, with a jazz vibe and soulful vocals. While the concert is free of charge and open to all, voluntary donations will be accepted in support of relief work in the Philippines in the wake of the typhoon, so bring cash/check if you have it (but don't let it stop you from coming if you don't). Join us and invite a friend!

Receiving the Gift of Limits

Sunday, Ryan continued our current teaching series,Receiving the Gift of Limits. The talk focused on the fact that, though we often like to imagine that the communities and causes we join have limitless potential, communities—just like individuals—exist within definite limits and to push beyond those limits is to risk dangerous outcomes. If you missed it, it's online here. This coming Sunday, Matt Croasmun focuses in on the boundaries on our time and talks about rhythms of work and especially of rest (also called "Sabbath") that God wants to give us as gifts.

Prayer on the Streets

Sunday, November 17th
United Church on the Green

One of the core values of ECV is the city of New Haven. One practical way we bless the city is to pray - to pray for the city AND its residents. Join us on Sunday as we go out into the city offering prayer and blessing to individuals on the streets. We will meet on the steps of United Church on the Green, pray for direction, and then go out in partners to pray for others. No experience necessary!
