Guide for Home Worship: 6/13/21
This Sunday, we’re celebrating the end of (most) COVID restrictions and the beginning of life as a regathered church. In this service, we’ll be sharing stories about the Lord’s faithfulness, singing His praises, and hearing from Scripture about the past, present, and future homecoming of God’s people.
Hour in the Word kicks off this Sunday! First hour activities are all geared toward equipping you to grow in Christ. This week Emmanuel Gatete, our summer intern, will be leading a lesson on the history of and how to pray for our brothers and sisters in Rwanda. Starting June 20th Jim Stamoolis and Pastor Casey will be leading a series entitled The Basics of Faith in Christ: What Christians believe. If you’ve ever wondered what heaven is like, or why Christians say Jesus is the only way to God, this is the series for you. And, even if you’ve been a believer for a long time, you may be surprised to discover what the Bible says about God, the world, and Christian’s eternal destiny. Join us every Sunday morning from 9-10 a.m. in the Great Room.
Church Picnic—This Sunday, June 13 following the service. Whytegate Park is located across the street from the church and features playground equipment, tennis and basketball courts. It has lots of room to spread out and enjoy the outdoors. If you plan to attend, please contact the church office. If your last name begins with A-M bring a salad to share or if N-Z bring a dessert to share. Everything else will be provided. Also remember to bring lawn chairs.

Bi-Weekly Virtual Prayer Gathering: This Tuesday night (6/15) at 7:30 PM, we’ll be gathering on Zoom for our bi-weekly prayer meeting. Come join us for a meaningful time of prayer—all from the comfort of your own living room. Zoom details to follow via email. If you have a prayer request or an update, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prayer… If you would like for people from our church to pray for you at any time, please send your request directly to email@example.com. Once approved by one of our pastors, your request will go straight out to our prayer list.
Offering Envelopes: We would encourage you to use last year’s offering envelopes (date not important) if you still have them. If you do not and would like envelopes with your envelop number please contact the church office with the number of envelopes you would need (example: one time a month, every other week, etc.). The Finance Committee appreciates when you use your numbered envelopes as this makes their job more efficient.
If you’re not receiving our emails – please contact the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to our email list. We would be happy for you to receive the information that is forwarded each week. Also any who would like to be added to the “prayer request list” may also contact the church office.
Would you like to use the Great Room? The Great Room is now available for groups of 25 or less to use throughout the week. To keep things safe and sanitary, you’ll need to reserve a time and follow a set of guidelines we’ve developed. For more information, please email email@example.com.
Weekly Office: Pastors Kenny and Casey are on Facebook Live at 9:00 a.m. on Thursday. During this time they will read a scripture passage and have a time of prayer. Copies of these times of worship will then be posted on our website: evcl.org/daily-office
