Fall Retreat Video

Yesterday I (Pastor Josh) sent out a LifeShare update about the ECC Students’ Fall Retreat which took place last weekend. The briefness of the LifeShare was to be coupled with a video that was visible on the actual lifeshare.live page, but not visible on the email that was sent to our subscribers.

If you are interested in watching the video recap of ECC Students’ Fall Retreat, please click on the link below. Thanks! P. Josh

ECC Students: Fall Retreat ’21

This past weekend, ECC’s Student ministry went to Camp Wesley for a time of fun, retreat and study. We spent our free time playing games, hiking, and getting to know each other. During our study time we focused our attention on Chapters 5 and 6 in Romans. On Sunday morning, four different groups shared a 15-20 minute worship service each focused on our theme: A New Way To Be Human. It was an amazing weekend, where God drew us nearer to him and to each other.

If you get a chance, ask a student about the weekend and let them share their experience with you!
