Every Sunday at ECC, we gather together as Christians, in the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, to worship our God and celebrate the gospel of his Son, Jesus Christ.
At ECC, we have a radical commitment to following the direction of God’s Word for all that we do in our corporate worship. In other words, we worship “by the book,” incorporating the elements of worship found in the Scriptures. These elements, include preaching the Word (1 Tim. 4:13; 2 Tim. 3:16-4:2), prayer (1 Tim. 2:1, 8), singing (Col. 3:16; Eph. 5:19) and the ordinances of baptism (Matt. 28:19; Acts 2:3) and the Lord’s Supper (Matt. 26:26-28; 1 Cor. 11:23-26). Through these elements, often called the ordinary means of grace, God creates and increases faith in his people.
9:30 am | Sunday Classes
We currently have classes for Toddlers (ages 2-3), Preschoolers (ages 4-5), Elementary (grades 1-5), and Middle School (grades 6-8). Toddlers, Preschoolers, and Middle school classes are located upstairs in our main hallway, while our Elementary class meets in our downstairs hallway. We also have a staffed nursery available during this time for children ages 0-24 months. We use the children’s curriculum by the Gospel Project.
Your child’s safety is of great importance to us. To this end, we provide a secure check-in service for all children participating in these ministries. (We also require background checks for our volunteers, and our building is under video surveillance.)
Line by Line
For teenagers and adults, we offer a class called Line by Line downstairs in our lower auditorium. This class is specifically designed to help every disciple of Jesus Christ learn how to read, study, and understand God’s Word for themselves. Each week, we work through passages of Scripture not only to discover important Bible-study skills and develop good interpretive habits, but mainly to behold the glory of Christ and to be transformed.
10:30 am | Worship Service
Our Sunday Worship service is a time where gather together to corporately celebrate the supremacy of our triune God and the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. In our Sunday worship services, we sing several songs, hear Scripture read, offer prayers to God, listen to a sermon, and celebrate the Lord’s Supper. Our corporate worship is a time of reverence and joy and is designed mainly for the benefit of believers. We conclude our time of worship around 12:15pm. You can view our weekly liturgy here.
Information for Families
During our worship service we have several spaces for families with littles. These are available throughout the entire morning:
- A staffed nursery (ages 0-24 months)
- A designated space for nursing mothers.
- A baby changing room open to moms and dads.
Children are always welcome in our corporate worship gatherings, and we love having them with us! In our lobby we have “quiet” activities freely available for families, things like crayons or pencils and paper for coloring and taking notes. We encourage parents to acclimate their children to the full worship service as soon as they are able, but we also understand that our desire for children to stay in the service can be challenging for families in our day.
We have two options for children during the second half of our worship service:
- A staffed drop-off play space for toddlers (ages 2-3). Around 11:00am we have a brief time of fellowship, during which we dismiss these kids.
- The Family Room. This is space where parents can bring their children if they become restless. This Family Room has a livestream of the service as well as several quiet activities. You can use this space to help your children learn how to sit through the worship service in an environment that’s non-disruptive. Once your child has gotten all the wiggles out, please feel free to come back in!
We’d be delighted to have you join us!
