1935 Road Rally Scavenger Hunt

Our 1935 young adult ministry is hosting a special event on Saturday, April 20th at 4:00pm, our first ever “Road Rally: Scavenger Hunt”. Participants will be put into teams for a photo scavenger hunt around town. This event is for all young adults roughly between the ages of 19 to 35-ish, BUT since many of our young adults are parents of young children, if you are not in that 19 to 35 category… if you are also parents of young children or just want to spend time with our young adults, you are invited to join! There WILL be childcare provided while the adults are playing the game, with a meal to celebrate at the end. Registration in advance is required at ecclife.net/connect. And side note: if anyone that is not participating in the event but wants to help make it all happen, Pastor Chuck will be looking for help with things like serving the dinner and with childcare. Feel free to reach out and let him know if you are interested.

Serving Opportunities

So many people faithfully serve up front and behind the scenes every week here at ECC—and we are thankful! Finding a place to serve is an important way to support and engage our mission. If you are looking for a way to get more involved in the ministry and mission of ECC, you can let us know here. Here are a couple of the current areas looking for more people to serve:   • We are looking for people to serve on our with our Audio Visual Team to help with slides during worship on Sunday Mornings • We are also looking for teachers and helpers in our preschool and kindergarten classroom. Those who serve are assigned to one Sunday per month, and they get to share Jesus’ love and care with some pretty awesome kids! Remember, it will take all of us serving together for us to become a community of people who know God, follow Jesus, and pursue God's purposes in the world, and we'd love to have you join us!

Easter Sunday
O God, who for our redemption gave your only-begotten Son to the death of the cross, and by his glorious resurrection delivered us from the power of our enemy: Grant us so to die daily to sin, that we may evermore live with him in the joy of his resurrection; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
