ECC Students March Fundraiser

For each Sunday morning of the month of March, we will be having a “Money Wall” in the Gathering Area with envelopes numbered $1-$100. The goal is to have 100 people take at least one envelope and donate that denomination of money toward the youth group. You will find students there to greet you and give information about what the money goes toward, and don’t hesitate to ask us to serve in any way to help earn that money. Thank you for helping support the youth ministry at Eaton Community Church.

ECC Students: March is DOer Month

To help bolster our fundraising efforts and serve the church, our community and the world, each Sunday evening we’ll be participating in a fundraising/service project during DOer Groups time (6-8PM). The events are below:

March 7 – Clean-Up Day at ECC

March 14 – Global Serve Day (finding ways to serve the global church)

March 21 – Writing Grief/Encouragement Cards for those who have lost loved ones in the last year

March 28 – Prayer Walk

Please pray for us as we find ways to actively live out the word of God (James 1:22).
P. Josh
