We connect in small groups to help us follow Jesus through community

First Group

If you are interested in an in-home group, we encourage you to participate in First Group! First Group is designed to help our church family get plugged in with a new group, learn about why we value small groups, and practice healthy small group habits. At the end of the class, your group will have the opportunity to launch as a full-fledged ECC small group who is on mission to help one another follow Jesus better.
If a registration doesn't pop up, check back again soon. If you have an ECC account, please login after selecting your campus. If this is your first time logging in, please create an account to register for First Group.

Interested in leading a group?

Here at ECC, we connect in small groups to help us follow Jesus through community. We have a variety of different ECC groups based on different interests, times of the week to meet, and studies they are going through. While our primary focus is in-home small groups, we also have a variety of groups based on everything from basketball to quilting, and hiking to fishing, if you are looking for more fellowship with our church family. If you are interested, please contact your campus Small Group Minister for help getting plugged in with one.

Groups Timeline

Although any group can choose to meet year-round,
the Group Ministry at ECC is comprised of three terms throughout the year: Fall, Winter, and Spring.

During the breaks in between, groups are encouraged to meet to serve, connect, and build relationships.
The best time to connect to a group is at the beginning of a term.
