ECC Students

We exist to help teens experience a relationship with Jesus Christ. There are many different ways we accomplish this, but we use mainly two:

WEEKLY GATHERINGS and EVENTS.

WEEKLY GATHERINGS

JAMES 1:22 ESV

"BUT BE DOERS OF THE WORD, AND NOT HEARERS ONLY…" 

Our approach to ministry is to give students the freedom to experience what we hear from the word of God. We hope to help each person develop an all-encompassing view of what it means to be a follower of Christ. There will be elements of fellowship, worship, prayer, service, study and challenge. We are helping develop DOERS of the WORD!

2019-20 THEME:

COLLIDE

WHEN HEAVEN MET EARTH

WHY The Gospel of JOHN?

It’s been said of John that it’s “shallow enough for a baby to wade in, but deep enough for an elephant to drown." - Ben Witherington III. 


This means The Gospel of John is for both the young in faith and the old in faith. We're hoping to realize the uniqueness of God coming down to us, and how it changed the world forever.

gATHERINGS

Each week we will gather together on Sundays to learn more about who Jesus claimed to be in the Gospel of John. This will be done through small groups, large group teachings and home groups. 


Below you'll also see a weekly devotional we're providing for students (and adults) interested in diving deeper.

rETREATS

There are a few retreats students will be involved in throughout the school year. Each of these retreats will be focused on a specific chapter from the book of John and how we can learn and apply Jesus' teachings to our lives.

Prayer Walks

PRAYER WALK (10:15AM)

The last Sunday of each month, our group meets and worship together at our 8:45am service. Following the service, we pray through and over the Crystal Lake community.


There are always adult leaders available, and it's a great opportunity to give back to our community.

Visitation

On the last Sunday of the month in the evening (6PM) we gather at the church to travel to homes of those who are "older" in the faith, and enjoy giving them company, while we gain a wealth of knowledge from history and experience. We play games, share a snack, and spend some time getting to know each other.
