Who We Are

Nestled in a small rural community of 500, ECC is a mission-minded fellowship that seeks to have a world-wide impact for Christ. We are preparing to move to a newly renovated school building across the street to afford greater flexibility, outreach, and handicap accessibility. Worship is casual involving the congregation. Jr. Worship is provided for k-5th. We seek to engage the community for Christ through several outreach events each year. Of greatest importance we seek to teach God's Word as the truth and present Jesus Christ as the Way to eternal life.

Our Services

What are services like?
Songs are a blend of traditional and contemporary. Many members of the congregation are involved in leading the different aspects of the service. Preaching/teaching is instructive and motivational towards giving one's life and service to the Lord Jesus Christ. A time of visiting and refreshments follow the service in the hallways.

What is the community like?
The congregation is made up of several families and extended families that enjoy being together. Having common goals of missions, outreach, training children, and ministering to the community bind us together in work and love. There are small groups for older adults, young adults, youth, children, and women that meet to encourage, study, fellowship and serve together.

What if I'm not a Christian?
You are most welcome and will be loved and encouraged. Services will urge you to consider the truth claims of the Bible and a biblical worldview. We do not discriminate ethnically, economically, or socially. People with questions and seeking answers are welcome. Jesus loves you--and so do we!
