Faith in Action

 

 

 
 

 

How Does It Work?

1.

Members and friends text or call into the hotline with tips, leads, or direct need requests on behalf of others in the ECC community.  

2.

ECC staff then follows up with the need discreetly to see if we can help.

3. 

If the individual gives us permission, we will then post the need anonymously to the Faith in Action Board outside the sanctuary for the church to respond in generosity and faith.

CAN'T PEOPLE TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES?

For a time, yes, we can all manage to appear, or pretend to be, independent.  But the truth is, everyone needs a little help from time to time.  
 
Yes, it takes humility to admit you need help.  And yes, it takes grace and courage to serve someone who has a need. But that's precisely the sort of community Jesus called us to be and build.
