ECC-Evangelical Covenant Church
Angels with Good News: Part 2
Welcome to ECC! It's that time of year again. The time when we prepare our hearts to celebrate the birth of Christ by journeying through the Season of Advent together. During Advent, we look back to Christ's First Coming, anticipate his Second Coming, and learn to live life with him as he comes to us each day. Thanks for joining us! We worship together each Sunday morning at 10:30am on YouTube, on our Worship page (, or in person.

Isaiah 117 House Service Project
One of the missions we support at ECC is Isaiah 117 House which helps care for children awaiting foster placement. On January 6-7, Isaiah 117 House will be hosting Help Build Hope where the community comes together to build interior walls of the new Isaiah 117 House. They need over 150 participants from the community to help with the construction from age 5 and up. January 6 will be a training day with building following on January 7. We encourage our church community to help out this mission by participating in this build. You can find more information and register here:
