As members of the Christian Church, Disciples of Christ, we don’t have creeds or doctrines. We think that how we live our faith is more important.
We have a passion for the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We believe that God’s direction for us is a lifelong journey that is intended to be shared and reflected upon with others.
God’s love and mercy are shown to others through acts of justice and peace. Our church shines when we move outside our walls and become the hands and feet of Christ. We are blessed by our gifts and our gratitude expresses itself in how we use our gifts and talents for mission and ministry.
We value unity amidst diversity, not uniformity.
We value freedom of belief and a reasoned, thoughtful approach to faith.
We take the Bible seriously – not literally.

When is the worship service?
What is the worship service like?
Our worship service is best described as traditional, and informally formal!
Yes, we still have pews and pipe organ. Whatever the style of music on a particular Sunday, it is done well. Some songs are accompanied by our talented organist on the amazing pipe organ that fills the sanctuary with a huge sound. Some songs are accompanied by the piano, and our pianist is an amazing jazz pianist.
The bulletin tells you when to stand up and where to find the songs.
Where should I park?
We have several Handicapped spots near the main entrance off of 44th Ave. Most people park in the North parking lot, parallel with Englewood Ave. We also have a south parking lot accessible from 44th Ave. and Douglas St.
Where is the sanctuary?
The sanctuary is located at the far South end of the building. Following worship guests are invited into the Fellowship Hall, just off the main entrance, for refreshments. Monthly potlucks (first Sundays) are especially popular.
What activities are available for my children on Sunday mornings?
Children are always welcome in worship. For those who would like, a nursery is available for babies and toddlers during worship, and all children during the 9 am hour. Following the children’s time in worship, children are invited to participate in Children’s Church, which is usually based on the Pastor’s theme for the sermon.
What should I wear?
Feel free to come as you are and dress as you’d like. Here at ECC, you’ll find all different sorts of people from all different walks of life. Some folks like to dress up for church and some wear jeans. Some people wear a tie or a dress and others have tattoos and piercings. Some people with tattoos and piercings wear a tie or a dress. You are welcome and will feel at home just as you are.
Can I take Communion?
You may know Communion as Eucharist, or The Lord’s Supper, or you may have no idea what it means when we pass around bread and juice. At ECC we have Communion every Sunday. We believe Jesus Christ is the host at the table of communion, and that he invites everyone to his table. You do not have to be a member or our church, or any church to take communion.
What do I do with this plate of money when it is passed to me?
As part of our worship we believe it is important to offer, as an act of gratitude, just a part of what God has given to us back to God’s work through the Church. As a guest we hope you will feel free to give or not give as you feel led. It is not a duty, obligation or requirement for anyone.
