eefc Vs. Leave a Comment

Pastor Jonathan Eckberg continues our study through the book of Ecclesiastes. We are all geared to want more: more dessert, more free-time, more financial freedom, more joy. But our desire for more can easily lead us into sin. The sin of greed is a problem that plagues all our hearts. In Ecclesiastes 5:8-6:12, we discuss why this is such a …

Pastor Jonathan Eckberg teaches week 2 of our Back-to-School series. Last week we discussed how evangelism is the biblical call to the body of Christ. But what does that mean for us as individuals?

Pastor Jonathan Eckberg introduces a new 2-week miniseries called, “Limited/Limitless.” Limitations are a part of life. None of us have an endless supply of energy or resources at our disposal.

Pastor Jonathan Eckberg shares our Easter message. Last Easter we were unable to meet together. The following 12 months brought more than their share of disappointment, frustration, and division.

Pastor Jonathan Eckberg concludes our series, “Abide,” by looking at 1 John 3:1-10. Some decisions are difficult, others – like what socks we wear or what spoon we choose to eat with – are so ridiculously easy and so obvious that we barely even think about them.

Pastor Ron Eckberg teaches the next message in our series, “Abide.” In John 10:10 Jesus tells us that he came that we might “have life and have it abundantly.” What a wonderful promise!

The Tie that Binds – 1 John 2:7-11

eefc Spotlight Leave a Comment

Pastor Jonathan Eckberg continues our study of 1 John, “Spotlight.” We live in a frantic and fragmented world. Information and decisions often come at us faster than we can sort them out. So how do we tie the details and big picture elements together to find a unified approach to living out the light of Christ? John tells us how …
