At EC, we believe life transformation happens best in community—and we live that out through small groups. We want you to experience the extraordinary life Jesus offers, and we want you to do it through connecting with others. Nothing is better than community. Whether you are brand new to following Jesus or have been following Him for years, we believe that the intentional relationships you’ll find in an eGroup are the ideal place to connect and grow. We want to help you find a place to truly belong, to celebrate the joys of life, and to weather the storms together.

We want you to become who God made you to be through personal and spiritual growth. Connecting with others is easy. Check out the types of groups we are offering below.

Perseverance

Moving towards mental and emotional wellness. 

Description: Never in our lifetime have we witnessed or lived through a global pandemic.  For so many of us, this experience has been difficult and challenging. Depression, anxiety, fear, uncertainty, suicide, are at an all-time high.  Our economies are suffering, our medical facilities are overwhelmed, seniors are dying, lockdowns are a regular occurrence, masks appear to be here to stay. 

How do we navigate and make sense of all this? Can we?  

Once this pandemic is over, will we go back to normal?  What is normal?

Join us as we begin a journey towards hope, healing, redemption, rescue, and restoration to wholeness? We know it’s God’s will for us to be transformed by renewing our minds. That means changing how we think.

Courageous

Courageous is designed to connect you into the heart of Biblical community with other men in your church. (Men Only) 

Description: Everything you do affects coming generations. The actions you take in this life can be a blessing to your great, great-grandchildren. Of course, that influence can work negatively as well.  Inspired by the movie COURAGEOUS, this eGroup will take you into biblical truths for a godly family. Join us as we explore topics such as redeeming your history, walking with integrity, winning and blessing the hearts of your children, and more. 

EC Men, join us as we grow in our walk with God and also in a life-giving community! We would love to get connected with you.

Bible 101

Getting The Most Out Of Your Bible

Description: Much like a map, the Bible is only helpful to us if we know how to read it. The Bible is an incredible book of history and facts, but most importantly, it is the all-powerful, living Word of God. It directs our paths, renews our minds, gives us strength, and encourages us. That’s why it is so important to have the right knowledge and tools when studying our Bible to get the most out of it. This eGroup is designed to equip you with knowledge and resources to better help you study your Bible. When we know how to navigate our Bible, we will be better equipped to understand and live out our faith.
