F.A.Q

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT WHEN ATTENDING ESCALON COVENANT CHURCH?

Upon entering you will be greeted and welcomed. If you have infants you are welcome to place them in the Nursery (10:30 service only) or bring them into the sanctuary with you or sit with them in the parent room located off the foyer. The music at the 8:45 service is a classic blended style worship and the 10:30 service is contemporary. The sermons are designed to Educate in the Bible, to Explore what that means in your life, and to Engage in everyday life what you have learned. It is our desire that every part of the service including singing, prayer, the sermon, and the time following the service be a meaningful time for you.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

We want you to feel comfortable. Casual clothes are the norm at ECC, but please wear whatever you feel most comfortable in…whether it is jeans or a tie.

How Long are the services?

Our Sunday service  typically last about 75 minutes.

Will i have to say, sign, or give anything? Or will i be singled out?

At ECC you will never be put on the spot, singled out, or embarrassed. As our guest you will not be asked to participate in the offering. The only time that you have to sign something is if you have children and place them in the nursery. Our hope is that you allow our service be a gift to you.

WHAT ABOUT MY KIDS – DO THEY COME INTO THE SERVICE WITH ME OR IS THERE SOMETHING GOING ON FOR THEM?

At the 10:30 service, we have a Nursery that is available for children up to their fifth birthday and Children’s Church for children age 5 through 5th grade. We also have two parents rooms where you can be with your children and still see and listen to the service.

What is the best way to get connected?

The best way is different for each person. One of the best ways is to get involved in one of our Life Groups. Another way would be in serving in one of the various ministries in the church (available to you after attending for 6 months). Please call the church office if you want to get plugged in.

Who Funds this church?

Our funding does not come from corporate sponsors or from our denomination, nor is there just one generous person paying all the expenses. It is the generosity of everyday people in our community that fuels what happens at ECC.  Our support comes from the normal tithes (10 percent of earnings) and offerings of people who love giving to what they see God doing here.
