Thanksgiving Back Service
9:00am on November 18th, 2018
This will be our 2nd annual “Thanksgiving Back” service, giving and serving out of an overflow of gratitude for all that God has done for us in Christ. Here’s the plan...
MEET AT ECC AT 9:00 AM ON SUNDAY MORNING.
Instead of our normal 11:00 am service, we will gather at ECC at 9:00am for prayer, singing, and giving a special offering for our Benevolence Fund to help individuals and families in need. All giving this Sunday will go directly to that fund so that we can continue to care for others in our church and community through this ministry.
PLEASE PRAY ABOUT HOW GOD WOULD HAVE YOU GIVE TO OUR BENEVOLENCE MINISTRY THIS SUNDAY.
After this short time of prayer, singing, and giving we will get some instructions for going to worship, serve, and share a Thanksgiving meal with the homeless under the I-35 bridge betwee 7th and 8th Streets.
We call this meal the "Great Thanksgiving Banquet"! We share a Thanksgiving meal with the homeless community. This event is held annually, the Sunday before Thanksgiving. Those who attend are offered a hot meal, but, more importantly, are offered offered fellowship with other attendees and those who came to serve at the Banquet.
PRAY FOR AN OPPORTUNITY TO SHOW GOD'S LOVE TO ONE PERSON.
Holidays can be a lonely time for those living on the streets. Often times, our street friends are not in contact with loved ones. This becomes especially apparent during the holiday season. Our goal is to offer hope, compassion and a hot meal to those who attend the Great Thanksgiving Banquet.
