On our Kitchen Team, we strive to take care of those serving each weekend at ECC. We are thankful to those who step up each weekend to teach, lead, and serve, and we want to provide for them in return. From picking up catered food to prepping meals to cleaning up at the end of the day, the Kitchen Team helps physically feed those spiritually feeding the Body of Christ at ECC.

Each weekend, we have various serving times. When you volunteer with the Kitchen Team, you will arrive before service to help set up, prep, or pick up the meal for that service, then stay until it is time to transition to the next meal or until clean up is complete. 

SERVING OPPORTUNITIES

Saturdays: Kitchen Team volunteers will pick up catered meals and bring them to the church before services begin. We also need people willing to oversee and take care of the kitchen area until clean up is complete. 

Sundays: We have serving times starting as early as 7:00 am. Kitchen Team volunteers will prep breakfast for the 8:00 am, transition from breakfast to lunch during the 10:00 am service, or manage the kitchen area for the 12:00 pm service until clean up is complete.

In Emerge, our mission is to make sure every child and student with special needs has an opportunity to hear the gospel and feel the love of Christ. We believe EVERYONE deserves to have a purposeful experience with Jesus while at church. This ministry also allows parents to truly rest in God’s presence, knowing their child is in a safe and loving environment. In Emerge, we use a one-on-one buddy system to ensure that each child is immersed in an inclusive environment with the comfort of a buddy to walk with them throughout our weekend services. Our goal is to meet each child where they are and provide them with the services they need to understand the gospel at their level.

In EON, we aim to meet students where they are during their middle school (6th-8th grade) years.

Why “EON”? According to Webster’s Dictionary, an EON is “an immeasurably or indefinitely long period of time” or “one billion years.” At EON, we strive to meet students in a difficult phase where it can be hard to see the large picture of their lives and of eternity. During middle school, when a student’s identity tends to focus on the sports they play, the clothes they wear, or their friend group, we desire to promote their eternal identity in Christ. This identity will last beyond their upcoming school test or shopping trip because it will last an EON!

For many students, the question they ask in this season is “Who am I right now?” rather than “Who am I going to be for an EON?” Peers, media, and culture bombard them every day, telling them who they are and who they should be. This pressure can lead to drastic, rushed, and short-sighted decisions that can affect the rest of their lives. In EON, we walk side-by-side with students and help them overcome the short-term chaos with eternal peace.

During our services, we have time for students to play games and have fellowship with each other and the leaders. We then have a time of worship which is followed by Bible-based teaching. The majority of our time is spent in Life Groups, where students get an opportunity to share about their weeks, discuss the lesson together, and pray for each other. 

EON ADULT LEADERS

During EON services, volunteers spend about an hour and a half with students. Because our time is limited with them, we try to maximize the quality of our time together. We sit with the students and ask about their weeks, and, most importantly, we listen. From the beginning of class and the end of class, we have to be as intentional as possible.

EON volunteers have an important role each week as we are in the world with middle school students. Middle school is a time when students are searching for their identity. We have the opportunity and privilege to share biblical truth and live out the gospel in the way we talk, act, and love in the time given with them each week. We purpose to pray for them throughout the week in hopes that God can protect them from the world, which tells them how they should look or who they should be.

As EON volunteers, we ask questions, we listen, we pray, we are intentional, we are consistent, and, most importantly, we love.
