What's Happening at ECV

Come and See
On Sunday, we finished telling The Big Story (listen to talks here)! As a church, we were invited each week to see how God’s big story relates to our own. One person who has a central place in this story is Jesus. From The Big Story, we know some of what Jesus was up to…but what was Jesus like? What did others in his day make of him? How did Jesus present himself to others and how might he present himself to us? These next four weeks, we will explore those questions as we look at Jesus’ role of Friend, Prophet, Priest, Judge, and King. Who is Jesus? Come and see.
Check out a Homegroup

Interested in a homegroup? Now, is a great time to check one out. Homegroups meet in homes throughout the city and there are options for all nights of the week. The weekly homegroups are wrapping up going deeper in The Big Story, and we'll begin looking at the person of Jesus next week. These groups have been great places to connect with others and to take next steps in what we've been sharing on Sundays. They are also spaces of prayer, engaging conversation, and friendship. Whether you are trying out church for the first time or you have been following Jesus for years, you are welcome at our homegroups. For more details visit the Homegroup section of our website.

Vineyard Justice Network

the Vineyard Justice Network conference is happening October 16-17 in Raleigh, NC. The forum will be focused on practical and compassionate ways for churches pursuing The Justice of God’s Kingdom to take on the issue of ending poverty. There are student registration rates and travel scholarships available, and the speakers they have lined up are amazing! You can find more info and register hereThis conference is close to ECV’s heart not only because of our vision for justice to come to New Haven, but also because the founder of VJN is Kathy Maskell, one of the co-planters of ECV.
