What's Happening at ECV

Building Update 

It has been great to see God's care and provision for ECV during the search for our new location. After weeks of contacting 40+ locations thanks to our building team, talking back and forth with different locations, and several in-person meetings for the ECV staff, we are down to two locations. Both locations have said yes to us using their space, and the staff and elders are walking through the next steps as the final details solidify. Please pray for us as we hear back about final financial details and, ultimately, make a decision. Please join leaders in the church as we set aside today, 10/15, to pray and fast for favor, wisdom, and a smooth transition. More details will be shared soon and until then, we'll see you at Trinity Lutheran!
This week

On Sunday, Asha talked about how our call to fruitfulness comes from connection to Jesus, not self-evaluation or others' evaluation of us. Asha reminded us that we can invite Jesus to abide in us, which enables us to dream God-sized dreams freely instead of fighting for something less. Listen to the talk here.

Next Sunday, Josh continues the series by exploring Jesus' call for us to die. While this is intense language, Jesus uses it often. Come and hear how this strong call is Jesus' path for true life.
Operation Christmas Child
Every Sunday in October 

OCC is a project of Samaritan's Purse (a Christian international relief organization) that provides shoeboxes of small gifts for children in developing countries around the world! Throughout October, we are collecting pre-packed shoeboxes OR loose items (ex. toiletries, toys, school supplies) in designated areas on Sundays. Join us in the fun of giving!

E-mail Hannah with questions.
