The Parking Lot Project Update (7/29)

We just received word that the parking lot WILL NOT be completed (nor drivable) by this coming Sunday (Aug. 1).

Therefore we will continue with our normal two services on Sunday morning, however, we will need you to use our temporary entrance/exit on 732. (See photo below)

HOW YOU CAN HELP

  • First, we are looking for volunteers who would be willing to help direct and assist people in parking. We need support for first service and second service or both.
  • If you can help us, please contact Tami Webb: 937-689-3048.

    FOR THOSE ATTENDING 1ST OR 2ND SERVICE
  • We ask that you please be patient upon your entrance to church this coming Sunday, and be respectful of those who are volunteering to help assist in parking.
  • We have handicap spaces available, but are reserving those for any who have a handicap plate/sticker/etc.
  • If you do not need a handicap space, please be willing to park where the assistants tell you to park.

We are looking forward to worshiping the Lord with you this coming Sunday, and are continued to be excited about what God is doing here at Eaton Community Church. We are sorry for this inconvenience, but are confident the parking lot will be completed the following Sunday (Aug. 8)

LIVESTREAM

If you feel uncomfortable or unable to attend this coming Sunday because of these recent changes, we encourage you to participate in worship with us through our LiveStream at 10:45 am. You can access that here.

ECC Students: Dodgeball tournament

On June 9th, 35 players and several spectators gathered together to partake in a tournament of epic proportions! 7 teams, each uniquely designed of five individuals sought to be the top dodgeball team in ECC Students for the remainder of the year. And what was the prize? Nothing… but PRIDE!

It was truly a fun night to watch so many adults and students (and spectators) laugh and smile at the events taking place. There were expected victories, and there were major upsets! The suspense was high and the hilarity even higher! In all, we played 28 games in just over an hour with one team coming out victorious:

THE BACKYARD BALLERS

From Left to Right: Caleb Sinks, Logan White, Aaron Clark, Josh Martin, Josh Sinks

So let’s give a round of applause for their victory, and if you happen to see them around, congratulate them, for they are the reigning ECC Students Dodgeball Champions.

Other teams to partake in the evening:
THE ECC KNIGHTS
TEAM JOY
THE NONES
THE DUCK, DUCK, CHUCKS
IMPACT
THE RUSTY NAILS
