What's Happening at ECV

Counting the Cost...

Jesus encouraged us to "count the cost" of being his followers so that we're not surprised by the demands and end up giving up. Last week, Matt talked about one of these costs: embracing the likelihood of failure. This week, Julian Reid shares what God taught him through his time in investment banking and through the process of leaving the world of finance as we consider another cost of discipleship: money.

Evenings at ECV: Four Factors of Risk Taking

Immediately following 
Sunday Gathering

During the month of May, we will hold Evenings at ECV to foster a space to engage risk-taking and Spirit-empowered ministry at our church. We want to create an open, questions-friendly, practice-oriented space to explore how to do this well as a community. During this series we will discuss four factors in taking risks in the context of ministry. This Sunday, Matt will lead a discussion on growing in authority in the Kingdom of God. Please RSVP to 
Josh if you plan to attend.

ECV City Initiative: Witness

Tonight, 7pm
Wexler-Grant School
55 Foote St. 

Tonight there will be a public hearing on the reopening of the Q House, a community center shut down in 2003.  The Q House is on Dixwell Ave. across from the Stetson Library, and it is a much beloved space by the New Haven community.  This hearing will call for program ideas that will shape how the building is used and even how it will be built.  A space like this is part of peace coming to our city.  Read more here.  Please pray for the meeting and consider attending.  E-mail Josh if you have questions.

Parking for SundayGathering

The city of New Haven is changing the parking restrictions for the space in front of United Church on the Green. Parking on the sidewalk area facing Temple Street of the parking lot is no longer allowed. Tickets will be written for cars parked in that area. That's the bad news. The GOOD NEWS is that parking will be allowed on the left side of Temple Street on Sundays. Other parking options include street parking on College or Elm Street and the Temple Street lot.  Spring is here! Enjoy a short walk to the church!
