Compassion

ECC CHRISTMAS TREE PROJECT – A yearly event in November and December to meet the needs of families and individuals in need of help for the holidays to provide Christmas gifts for the Holiday Season. In 2016 we helped 41 families by sharing the love of Christ and giving to meet their needs in His name. Contact Mark Post for more information at 208-286-0879

 

HOLIDAY MEALS MINISTRY – We offer families and individuals help for the holidays by providing meals for those in need for both the Thanksgiving and Christmas meals. Many of our Small Groups at ECC have adopted a family for the holidays, and much of the help given is in monetary ways so we can give gift cards and a turkey to families for a holiday meal. To donate, please contact Mark Post at 208-286-0879 or write a check and in the memo line put Holiday Meals Ministry.

 

WOW MINISTRIES: WOMEN OF WORTH – WOW is our ministry to widows, and Pat Amyx is the contact person for their monthly luncheon meetings and other times of fellowship for women who have lost their spouses. The group also has adopted children from KCCM in India as a special outreach of the group to meet the needs of orphans in India. Contact Pat Amyx at 208-890-6335 or Glennis Thomas in Women’s Ministries.

 

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD – Our Children’s Ministry team, in partnership with Operation Christmas Child and Samaritan’s Purse, distributes shoe boxes for filling for boys and girls in third world countries, and we are also a distribution center for the collection of the boxes in the Treasure Valley. We are privileged as a church family to send these boxes filled around the globe to children who would never hear of Christ or Christmas except through these gifts. Contact Mark Post at 208-286-0879 for more information and how you can help.

 

IDAHO CHOOSES LIFE – We are privileged to help champion the pro-life movement with our partnership with David Ripley and Idaho Chooses Life. David lobbies for the Right to Life causes with the State Legislature of Idaho, and we host the annual Idaho Chooses Life dinner and auction at ECC in the first week of December yearly. Life is a sacred gift and trust from God, and we partner with David and ICL for the sanctity of life as a creation of God and gift to us. Contact Mark Post at 208-286-0879 for more information on how you can give and support Idaho Chooses Life.

 

COMPASSION MEALS – The Women’s Ministries of ECC coordinate meals for those who have had surgery and those who have experienced the loss of a loved one and are having a funeral at E.C.C.  If you would like to be part of the team of meal and food providers for this ministry of Compassion for those in need, please contact Danielle Bowman at 208-401-5421 or the offices at ECC 208-286-0879.
