Yesterday Pastor Gary invited the Church to join in on 3-Days of Prayer & Fasting beginning today through the end of Wednesday, October 11. We believe that fasting and praying together as a church will prove to be monumental. We hope you prayerful consider joining us! WHAT IS FASTING AND WHY DO WE DO IT? We are dedicating 3 days (October 9-11) to God! Fasting is simply withstanding from something in order to focus our attention and efforts towards God. When we partner this with prayer, we are able to see God......
ECF Family and Friends, Our hearts continue to break for the city of Houston, and the devastation that hurricane Harvey has caused. As the church you know we never turn away from these disasters. We refuse to stay on the sidelines when suffering people need us to get into the game. So, after much discussion, prayer, and counsel from experts who deal with these kinds of tragedies regularly, here is our initial response to the overwhelming need in Texas: First, ECF has already sent a $10,000 gift from our Acts 2 Fund to......
Summer is fast approaching, and that means warmer weather, longer days, and a chance to invest in your leadership and influence skills. We are all leaders—even if you don’t run a team, have a fancy title, or spend your week preparing sermons. If you have influence, you are leading someone. And when a leader gets better, everyone around them gets better, too. ECF is hosting the Global Leadership Summit for the 8th year on August 10-11. We know it’s a commitment in your professional and personal life to attend the Summit, so we......
Hi Everyone! I hope you’re having a fantastic week. This Sunday, June 4, marks two special events and I want to encourage you to make every effort to attend. Eight weeks ago we kicked off our annual First Fruits giving event. We’ve done this for over 15 years and gather together to celebrate the great things God has done for us and acknowledge that everything we have comes from Him! He wants to bless us and make us a blessing to others (Genesis 12:1-3)! While some have already given, this Sunday we’ll......
Hi everyone! I trust you are all having a fantastic day! This Sunday I will launch a three-part series called First Fruits: God’s Plan to Prosper You. We’ve done this annually for more than 15 years and it’s proven to consistently help people align themselves with God’s word and begin to experience God’s blessing on their finances. For those new to the congregation let me give a brief explanation. Our First-Fruits offering is drawn from the Feast of First-Fruits (Harvest) found in Exodus 23,34 and Leviticus 23. Each family would harvest the grain......
Hello Everyone! I hope you’re doing well and staying warm. We felt the wise decision was to cancel the service this morning and stay off the roads. We’ve rescheduled Wayne Cordeiro for February 19. I do hope you’re joining me in our daily reading and praying through the Lord’s Prayer. Today’s reading from John 6 is challenging from many angles. I was stopped in my tracks by verse 15. “When Jesus saw that they were ready to force him to be their king, he slipped away into the hills by himself.” John......
