This Week at ECV

Town Hall & Special

Teaching This Week

This Sunday, we have a special teaching that will share where God is leading us as a church at ECV and discuss the question how do we follow Jesus in a discerning community.  In our last series, we saw how the church of Corinth did this with one another.

This Sunday, we will share how we, too, have been praying to receive "the mind of Christ" and to discern wisely together.  The elders and the transition team are excited to share where they feel God is leading ECV as we make adjustments in staff roles and focus our vision.

Also, we invite everyone to join us for a Town Hall meeting immediately following the Sunday gathering to hear some more details about the upcoming changes at ECV, including some specific presentations, and to ask questions and give feedback.

Summer Prophecy Group

TONIGHT! Wed, Aug 6
6:30-8:30pm (note time change)

36 Tilton Street, Apt D

This summer, on 1st and 3rd Wednesdays there is a gathering at Jane and Eric Jueland's for anyone who wants to practice hearing from God for one another and process the experience of participating in prophetic ministry together. If you were stirred up by the Life With a Living God conference to step out into prophetic ministry, or if you are feeling led to investigate this way of hearing from God more, this is a great group for you. Weather permitting, we'll meet in the back yard. This week we will be discusing further the idea of personal consecration as well as the possibility of meeting when the summer is over.


Sunday, August 10th

8am: Meet on the steps of United Church on the Green,
9am: behind UCG

Agape Church is a community of housed and unhoused people seeking God together that meetsSunday mornings.  A core group of ECVers have served this church for more than five years.  Every so often, we select a Sunday where we especially welcome ECVers to come and check out the ministry of Agape.  Join us!  If you would like to prepare food at 8am or simply join the service at 9am, please letJosh know.

Praying for Peace on Our Streets

Every week, we pray for the peace of our streets.  Last week, we saw a long stretch of no homicides in the summer end with the death of Tyrese Jones.  He died on Chapel and Kensington St., a couple of blocks away from where several ECVers live.  As we were reminded last week by Josh, God has invited us to a reality where in seeking the peace of our entire city we seek our own peace.  Let's step into that reality further and pray for New Haven this week.
