Praying for Our Neighbors
Expand
Dear Friends, Jesus said, "I am the light of the world. Anyone who follows me will never walk in darkness but have the light of life." The Lord planted our church--and each of you--where we are to help our neighbors discover the light of life. So, we're asking everyone who calls ECC home to consider becoming a "light" to their neighbors and living intentional pray-care-share lifestyles. This fits so well our annual B.L.E.S.S. initiative, too. As a reminder, BLESS stands for Begin with prayer. Listen with care. Eat together. Serve in love. Share your story.Becoming a "light" in your neighborhood is free and confidential. You'll receive a map and list of your closest neighbors, along with emails at the frequency of your choice to pray for your next five neighbors that day. When you get a chance, walk or drive by those homes as you pray for them. To learn more about this opportunity visit the following link and watch the 2 minute video by Stephen Kendrick. When you are ready to get started, click the sign up button on the bottom of the page. - Pastor Stacey Littlefield

Fifth Sunday After Pentecost
Kurt Kincanon, Administrative Pastor
White this week's Good News Statement below:
Questions to ponder: Which character or characters in the story of the Jerusalem Council do you identify with? What experiences have you had that are similar to them?
Question to ponder: Read Peter’s experience in Acts 10 and compare it to what Paul writes in Galatians 2 and finally what Peter says in Acts 15:7-11 What stands out to you about what happened and Peter’s Journey?
Question to ponder: Re-read James’ speech and decision documented in Act 15:13-29. What can you lean and apply from how James approaches this situation? How does it apply to your work or ministry context?
Question to ponder: In what ways have you, like the gentile believers in Antioch, made concessions at times for the sake of not offending, or causing your brothers and sisters in Christ to stumble

Prayer for the Fifth Sunday after Pentecost
O God, you have taught us to keep all your commandments by loving you and our neighbor: Grant us the grace of your Holy Spirit, that we may be devoted to you with our whole heart, and united to one another with pure affection; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
