Snow Camps 2022

Register today!
You won’t want to miss this year’s SNOW CAMPS! We have the ENTIRE CAMP reserved February 11-13 and have crafted special tracks for PreTEEN, Middle School, and Adults and Families.

We have 2 great break out options for the All Ages track.

  • The Marriage Metaphor: God’s Mission on Display
    (For singles and married couples ages 18-80)
    This track will explore God’s design for the marriage relationship, and how God-honoring marriages are intended to serve as living advertisements for His Kingdom!
  • Pursuing Peace:  Finding Calm in the Eye of the Storm
    Is it possible to live in this world at this time without being swept up into the mighty current of anxiety which destroys our mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health, and robs us of peace?  The answer is “Yes!” – but not without intentionally protecting ourselves from this other destructive global pandemic – fear and anxiety.

We also have Bald Eagle Lodge and the Backwoods Cabins reserved the following weekend (February 18-20) for High School.

Men's Game NIght

Join with other ECC guys on the first and third Saturday nights each month for game night where we can  build community, share some laughs, and play some serious games! Throughout the year this group will gather together on Saturday nights to enrich relationships by sitting down to some friendly board games of various kinds.

Boundaries Group

Starts January 17

Christians often focus so much on being loving and giving that they forget their own limits and limitations.  Have you ever found yourself wondering?

  • Can I set limits and still be a loving person?
  • How do I answer someone who wants my time, love, energy, or money?
  • Why do I feel guilty when I consider setting boundaries?

Based on bestselling authors Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend’s book, Boundaries, this group will go through an 8 week DVD series and group discussion. The series offers biblically-based answers to tough questions showing us how to set healthy boundaries in our relationships.
