MOSAIC--ADD YOUR PIECE!  This Sunday, all ECLCers will be encouraged to place pieces in our new mosaic upon entering and exiting worship.  We have tile piece ready, but if you have a special piece to share (broken plate or cup, smooth stone/pebble/gem), we encourage you to bring it Sunday!  Not here Sunday?  ECLC's Mosaic Team welcomes helpers on Wednesday night from 6:30-8:00pm for mosaic creation!
