Wow! What an awesome Sunday
We had last Sunday!
Children’s Pastor Lavoe Hartley planned “Summer Games” for the children! We had 20 new children! Ten confessed Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior! Volunteers, “Thank You!” Thank you Pastor Lavoe for your passion and heart for our children! Thank you for your creativity and leadership. Your Pastor and your ECF family honors you and values you!
Sermon Series: This Sunday we will conclude with the sermon series “The Promise.” The purpose and desired outcome of this series is: 1) for the new and immature believer – is to introduce them to the Person, the purpose, the personal relationship and power of the Holy Spirit. 2) For the mature believer –to provoke them to be encouraged by practice and example, encourage the new and immature believer into a “Spirit-filled” life / lifestyle! This weeks sermon is entitled “Have You Received The Promise?” Let’s soar as we explore, “The Promise!”
Luvena Gandara Graduates to Glory – At 2:20PM Thursday, August 1st, Luvena Gandara exhaled her last breath on earth and inhaled her first breath in Heaven!

Tuesday, August 6th at 3PM a committal service will be conducted at her family’s burial plot near Bentonville AK.
Fatherlessness is no secret at ECF and we are being proactive about it. We know that if you are an 18 year old make in America – you are a father figure to someone. Fatherlessness did not happen overnight and will not be corrected overnight – but it is now our time of opportunity to begin to correct this blight. We are going to continue to focus on our 1 Square Mile (1SM) with emphasis on discipleship. I encourage you to be faithful in your monthly faith commitments in supporting Pastor Phil Larson!
