ECLC ANNUAL PROGRESSIVE DINNER: Save the Date for our Annual Progressive Dinner on Saturday, May 9 from 5:00-9:00 pm. The potluck dinner is a spring tradition at ECLC where the diners “progress” from one place to another during the course of the evening, beginning and ending at the church. This is a great opportunity to get to know other members of the congregation from ALL the age groups! Childcare will be available. Watch this space for more information after Easter.

EASTER FLOWER SPONSORSHIPS:  Help decorate the ECLC Sanctuary for our Easter worship services by sponsoring flowers around the altar. The cost for each potted plant is $15.  Sponsorships can be made to honor a special occasion or remember a loved one. Please note “Easter flowers” on the memo line of your check or pay online at www.eclc.org.  You may take the flowers home to enjoy after Easter.
