Our Ministries and Outreaches
Our Ministries and Outreaches are developed to support our Mission Statement which is to "Advance God's Kingdom", "Create Disciples" and to "Evangelize the World". They are also our way to connect with each other and to our community. If you would like to take part in any of these Ministries go to our "Contact Us" page or come out to our sanctuary and let know how we can accommodate you.
In a phrase..."Prayer changes things!" And we rely heavily on prayer to get things done for Christ. The Apostle Paul said in Ephesians 6:18, that we must pray at "all times".
Come join us at the church on 7:00 p.m., every Wednesday evening for an powerful hour of prayer. You'll be glad you did!
Our Youth group is always on the go and doing things that bring them closer to God and having fun at the same time. If you are between the ages of 12- 17, this is the group for you! Our Youth group leader, Angela Fronsoe, is excited about God, is filled with His Holy Spirit and has a heart for the youth - Come on and get in on the action!
The Men's Fellowship Group targets the men. They meet every Thursday evening to get into the Word of God, encourage each other and to pray together. The group is currently led by a seasoned man of God, Gregory Anderson, whose motto for the team can be found in Proverbs 27:17 "Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend" Need sharpening? We've got you covered!
If you're a women and you're ready to go to the next level spiritually, this is the event for you. Powerful sermons, moving of the Holy Spirit, and wonderful fellowship - the Women's Breakfast has it all! This event just keeps growing in size because the sisters are being fed both spiritually and naturally. And speaking of being fed naturally - the breakfast they serve is quite good too!
The Nursing Home ministry has been going for many years. This is a ministry where EC team members go into various nursing homes where the attendees are not able to attend a traditional church. In this case, we bring the ministry to them - Just like in the bible!
Like the Nursing Home ministry, the Prison Ministry brings the gospel to those in need. EC has supported this ministry for many years and in doing so, supports two Minnesota Prison facilities: Stillwater and Lino-lakes. The inmates always look forward to the worship services which provide them hope in an otherwise dark place.
The Children's Ministry is one of our most important ministries because it focuses on the future church. Jesus said in Matthew 19:14 "Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven". On this basis, Children's Ministry seeks to address their unique needs, ground them in the Word of God and provide them with godly activities. Minister Tressie Smith leads this vital ministry and has a special burden for the children. If you would like your children to join this group, contact us and let us know.
