COVID UPDATE

Church Family and Friends,

As you have likely heard, we have several in our congregation who have tested positive for COVID over the last several weeks. We wanted everyone to know that these cases have included some who have not been present in activities or services over the last 7-10 days and a few who have been present. We continue to notify anyone who has been in direct contact with someone who has tested positive. Thankfully, the bigger picture continues to show overall improvement with more vaccinations and less cases in our community. Please continue to participate in the prescribed practices to help keep everyone healthy. Finally, please be praying for healing for those who have tested positive and for the end of this virus.

Blessings and peace to you all,

Pastor Dan

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
