Praise and worship is not just a gathering of believers singing songs in a church service. At ECC, praise and worship is an incredible time of entering into God’s presence where we taste and see that the Lord is good. With the conviction that God inhabits the praises of His people, we joyfully prepare for and lead in worship weekly, and in special events throughout the year. As we present a joyful song to the Lord, we seek to grow in our love for Him and those for whom He gave His life.
ECC is committed to seeing our neighborhood transformed through the love of Christ. There are numerous ways that we seek to meet the physical, and spiritual needs of those God has placed in our neighborhood. Whether its our ongoing ministries like Senior Drop-in, Christianity Explored, Friends for Kids you will you will find our church constantly reaching out to those around us. Though we know it is important to meet whatever needs our neighbors might have, we know that all that we do must be done in the name of Christ, sharing His love with each one we encounter.
God's people are to be a people on mission. There is no way to get around this fact. His people are to make disciples of all nations. We are to take the gospel to our neighbor next door and to people across the globe who have never even heard of Jesus. It is not an either/or, but a both/and. Our call is to see lives changed through the message of hope and salvation found in Jesus Christ. It is our goal that every person involved at ECC will be involved in some sort of missions endeavor so that God's Kingdom may spread in Springfield, in the United States, and across the globe.
