Taking our lead from the New Testament, we believe the Bible’s path to salvation and spiritual growth can be summarized in three words:  Follow. Connect. Make. This drives everything we do here at EFCCL. Our Vision is to Follow, Connect and Make.

Connecting is the second step in fulfilling our core vision to Follow, Connect and Make.

This next step towards spiritual community connects us to a group of fellow believers. Being connected and getting involved in a local church is a critical ingredient for spiritual growth and maturity.  Just click on the light blue link of each connection point below to learn more. 

Community Groups

Community Groups build meaningful connections within a smaller community based on study questions from the prior Sunday's sermons. Getting to know each other through attending weekly helps a large church feel more like family. 


Mentoring/discipleship is an excellent way to connect through intentional discipleship or mentoring relationships in our Men's and Women's discipleship-making ministries. 

Adult Bible Fellowships

Study the Bible in these Sunday morning classes that offer both study and fellowship. These meet in the South wing of our building during both service times, so you're able to attend a worship service and have study and fellowship.  

Men’s and Women’s Events

Men's and Women's events are held throughout the year to bring us together around events as well as similar interests and studies. 


Embrace is a program at our church for mothers of young children. It's designed to fulfill the need for friendship, mutual support, and spiritual growth.
