COME TOGETHER FOR CELEBRATIONS THIS FALL!

All ECLCers are invited to gather in community at parties this fall where the Stewardship Committee will offer a word of thanks for the many ways our members make our church a vibrant community of faith, and invite some conversation about our church and its meaning and mission. These simple, potluck parties are a great opportunity to meet other ECLCers, reflect on what God is up to within this congregation, and give thanks for this community of faith we share. Bring a favorite dish to share; beverages will be provided. Which party (or parties!) will you attend this fall?
