Children of all ages are welcome in the sanctuary during our worship services, but the nursery is open to infants and toddlers during the service as well as the Sunday School hour. Our nursery workers are dedicated to showing each child the love of Christ.
Elementary age children (K-5th grade) are encouraged to sit with their families for the beginning of the service, then are invited to attend children's church after the offering. This is an exciting time for children to engage in age appropriate lessons and activities.
Sunday School meets on Sundays at 9:00 AM. The elementary class is currently studying What's in the Bible and the Junior and Senior High School class is studying The Book of James by Francis Chan.
Midsouth Covenant Camp
This year's Midsouth Covenant Camp is July 30 - August 5. Camp is held at Frontier Camp in Grapeland, TX. There is always a wonderful line-up of lessons, games, and activities. This seven day camp ministry is for children in 2nd through 9th grades and is a wonderful opportunity for children to experience God's great creation, learn more about His word, and grow in their relationship with Jesus.
The first Sunday of the month is Family Sunday, an opportunity for families to worship together for the entire service. The children are invited up to the front after prayer for a special children's message, and a children's worship packet is available in the Narthex.
The youth are encouraged to attend and fully participate in the worship service every Sunday. There are a number of opportunities for youth to serve on Sunday mornings, including the worship team, reading scripture, or helping with PowerPoint.
Youth Bible Study
The youth Bible Study is currently on break. Most Wednesdays during the school year, the youth gather for this exciting Bible Study to worship God and dig deeper into the Bible together.
Every three years the ECC puts on a conference of epic proportions. The purpose of CHIC is to be a catalyst that inspires Christ-like change; challenging students to see themselves as part of something bigger and inspiring students on the journey of following Christ. From the time they arrive, students are stunned by the sheer number of their peers who have intentionally gathered out of a desire to play, worship, learn, and grow in understanding and in faith with people from all sorts of cultures and backgrounds.
