Welcome to the ECC Bible Project Blog!  As we move through the Bible together in 2018, we invite you to listen in as the staff (and even a few guest contributors from our very own ECC family) reflect on scripture together and seek to be formed by God's living Word.  
 
Our prayer is that these weekly posts might encourage you to join in and see scripture in new and exciting ways, or maybe just remind you of what you already know.   Either way, we're in it together.   And we're glad you're here.
