What's Happening at ECV

An Enduring Love
All throughout Lent, we have seen that investing in love is costly but worth it. God has challenged us to receive His sacrificial love as the way to love others well. Tina shared this message last week by emphasizing our need to have Jesus "wash our feet." By receiving love first, we can freely give it away. This love, however, is more than a means. It represents an end, the enduring power of love. On Easter Sunday, Josh will share how Jesus' resurrection makes an enduring and eternal love an everyday reality for us.

ECV Good Friday Service
4/3 6-7pm

“It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord… to sit alone in silence when the Lord has imposed it.”
(Lamentations 3:26, 28)
Please join us for our ECV Good Friday service at First and Summerfield UMC from 6-7pm. There will be scripture and poetry readings and reflection on the significance of Jesus' death.
There will also be a special service downstairs for the children.

Easter Sunday Potluck
4/5 after the service

Easter is almost here!

Join us on Easter Sunday and celebrate the new life we have in Jesus! After the service we will continue the celebration by sharing a meal together. Bring a friend and a dish to share.

Josh's Commissioning
4/10 8pm @ FSUMC
Join us as we celebrate all that God has done in this year of transition, celebrate God's call to Josh and God's provision of Josh to us as a church and bless him as he continues to walk out this new role as Lead Pastor. It'll be a significant opportunity for us as a community to mark a time when God spoke clearly, provided abundantly, and led us into a tremendous season of fruitfulness.
The event will be a First and Summerfield UMC at 8pm. There will be prayer, worship, scripture reading, stories of God's provision over this past year, and a few words from Josh about where he sees God leading us as a community.
