What's Happening at ECV

The Work of the Church
Last week, Josh kicked off a new series on “The Work of the Church.” As the Church we are called by God to play many important roles in the world and in one another’s lives. Josh’s talk this past week focused on a challenging role: the Church as an army used by God to push back the forces (both external and internal) that threaten God’s good creation. This week, Matt invites us to think about the ways that the Church does the work of a school, forming disciples (literally, “students”) for the sake of God’s work in the world.

ECV is hosting a follow up event to the Veritas Forum called "Working Through Lament". It's happening this Saturday, November 14th, 4pm at FSUMC. This event will be focused on helping people get to the heart of matters of racism and injustice by processing the feelings and experiences we have, are afraid to have, or don't even know how to have. All are welcome to both events, so don't hesitate to invite your friends.
