What's Happening at ECV

A Costly Love
Last Sunday, Josh shared about what it looks like to have an unoffendable love. Listen to that talk here.  This Sunday, known as "Palm Sunday" on the Lenten calendar, Tina will continue our teaching series on "Costly Love" by sharing about a love that is sacrificing. We will look to Jesus as our model as we explore what it means to live and to love in this way.
ECV Passover Seder
3/27 @ 5:30pm

Engage the season of Lent with all your senses! We will be holding special Seder dinners this Friday, March 27 as the culmination of our Friday Lenten dinners. The ECV Passover Seder is an opportunity to join in a special celebration and commemoration of Jesus' work as our Deliverer in anticipation of Easter. It is an especially significant way for children to engage the meaning of Jesus as our Passover Lamb. A special dinner feast will be prepared and a liturgical reading performed during the meal. Please RSVP soon by using this form if you would like to participate.

Holy Week at ECV

Holy week is almost upon us. Here are some events that ECV is hosting the weekend of Easter to help us engage with this season commemorating Jesus' death and resurrection.

Good Friday Service
Please join us at First and Summerfield UMC on 4/3 from 6-7p. There will be scripture, poetry readings, and reflection on the significance of Jesus' death.
Childcare will be provided.

Easter Sunday Potluck
Join us after the service for food and fellowship! Bring a friend and a dish to share.
1. Last Name A-F: Bring a Drink or Dessert
2. Last Name G-M: Bring a Side Dish
3. Last Name N-Z: Bring a Main Dish

ECV Egg Drop

Join us this Saturday, 3/28, 1pm at Tracie and Eoin's place (192 Mansfield) as we paint beautiful eggs to place around our city as a sign that Easter is coming! The eggs will contain an invitation to our Easter service and the subsequent potluck dinner that night. We "piloted" this experiment last year and had a lot of fun (and made ECV's first ever Vine). Some people even came to last year's Easter service with their egg in hand! Please know that no artistic experience is necessary for this activity! Just an openness to paint, hang out, and have some fun.

The Saturday of Easter weekend, 4/4, @ 10am we will meet on the steps of First and Summerfield UMC to help hide the eggs downtown. If you'd like, you can also come and pick up eggs to hide in your own neighborhood.
