Know God, Know Freedom, Know Purpose, Make A Difference

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8

“Go and make disciples of all nations…” – Matthew 28:19a

God desires that all nations and all people come to Him. We believe that once someone has encountered God’s goodness, they want others to experience Him as well. Jesus then empowers us with the gifts of the Holy Spirit to take His Gospel into the world. This is missions!

As a church we want to share the abundant life of Jesus. We do this by communicating what God is doing in the world, mobilizing the church to engage in God’s mission, and we send & support long-term missions whether in our backyard or around the world.

This is accomplished through our program called MissionConnect.

MissionConnect

MissionConnect consists of three teams that carry out the mission God has for Ephrata Community Church.
ENTHUSE: We believe we must testify of God’s ever-expanding Kingdom

Do you know who ECC has sent out in missions? Are you familiar with our ministry partnerships? The Mission of Enthuse Team is to inspire the church to become familiar with what God is doing through ECC and among our local and overseas partners through quality communications that lead all parts of the church into action and engagement with God is doing.

EXPOSE: We believe that once you have tasted missions it will change you forever.

Have you ever been the first person to explain who God is to someone who does not know Him? Have you experienced the feeling of leading someone to Christ? The Mission of Expose Team is to connect you with what God is doing in the world through ECC and our partners by creating opportunities for short-term missions, as well as providing additional missional service and learning opportunities locally and abroad.

ENGAGE: We believe anyone & everyone has a role to play in God’s global mission.

Can I still be involved in missions from home? What do I do if I feel called to missions? The Mission of the Engage Team is to mobilize the church to be a part of God’s missional work at ECC by walking alongside anyone desiring to be involved in missions, serving in short-term outreaches or being sent long-term, and by facilitating local outreach and “Mission Support Teams” to care for each of our embedded missionaries.

Opportunities to serve include leading outreach teams, strategizing and initiating local community outreach, being part of a missionary care team, volunteering with our partner ministries, and more! Come join us as the church lives out our witness of Jesus and reaches the world with the Gospel.
