ECC is thrilled to welcome our new minister, Richard Castleman, and his family! His wife Dana and five children, Michal Kate, Noah, Jack, Emorie, and Elijah will be not only a blessing to our church family, but to southern Illinois as well. Please join us in welcoming the Castlemans!



MOPS – RETURNING IN SEPTEMBER! We moms need each other, especially moms of preschoolers! At each meeting there will be time to get to know other moms in an accepting small group atmosphere. Need some inspiration? At every meeting there will be a speaker or video that gives practical tools and insight into the specific things that are important to you. Join us every other Thursday morning at 9:30am. Childcare provided.
