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!


MEAL - 5:30PM

GATHERING - 6-8PM


We meet regularly each Sunday evening in the Gathering Area at ECC

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.

EVENTS

Kalahari Girls' Retreat

March 13-15

Grades: 7-12, Girls only.

Cost: $115


ECC Students' Girls will be spending the weekend learning about Jesus' prayer to The Father in John 17. We're going to use this time, and Jesus' prayer as a platform to develop an intimate prayer life in each of our teens. Not only will they have some great time to spend in God's Word, but they'll also be given an opportunity to swim, water slide, surf, and much more at one of the world's biggest water parks.

Guys' Spring Retreat

March 20-22

Grades: 7-12, Guys Only

Cost: $115


We're going to spend the weekend eating good food, hiking, playing dodgeball and paintball, and much more. Most importantly, we're going to take time looking at John 17, and how Jesus prays to the Father. We hope this can be a launching pad to begin developing a similar prayer pattern in the lives of each young man that attends the weekend.

Lodging will be at Walnut Ridge in Brown County, IN. It's a beautiful place to rest and have some fun.

CHALLENGE '20

KC AGAIN!

We're heading back to Kansas City! We're still going to serve and share the gospel of Jesus Christ, and we'll be filling our mornings and evenings with a conference devoted to discipleship!


CHALLENGE CONFERENCE

If you're looking for an opportunity to grow deeper in your faith, worship with thousands of other students your age, and have an unforgettable/life-changing experience you won't want to miss this!


SERVING

One of the reasons we're returning to Kansas City again is to follow up with some of the ministries we worked with last year. So we'll be making time to go to familiar sites and see some familiar faces.
