Hey everyone, good morning and welcome to Echo Church! I'm (first name) and we're honored that you would spend your Sunday morning with us. Whether you're joining us for the first time or if Echo is your home, we hope that you feel a part of our family.
If you're new here, we're excited that you chose to be with us today!
To help you feel at home, you were given a worship guide on your way in. The guide has helpful information so that you can get to know us a little.
You'll notice that inside the worship guide is a card with the words NEW HERE at the top. Please take a moment to complete that card. After the service, we would love to meet you at our Welcome Table! You can bring the completed NEW HERE card with you, and we have a cool Indiana/Echo t-shirt that we would like to give you to say "thanks" for joining us. Stop by and grab your's today! Then, we'll simply send you an email from our pastor this week.
Also, if you're new to Echo Church and you're interested in learning more about us, we created a simple way for you to connect. Every month we have a fun, two-part gathering called Echo Steps. Step one meets the first Sunday of each month and you'll discover more about us, how you can connect with others and grow in your relationship with Christ. Step two meets the third Sunday each month and you'll learn how to join an Echo Team, and meet team leaders. You can begin Echo Steps in any order.
To sign up, simply stop by the Welcome Table today. Lunch and childcare are provided, and Echo Steps begins right after the 10:30AM service.
On Sunday, June 16th, Echo will be conducting Child Dedications. Child Dedications are a special opportunity for parents and churches. Parents commit to raise their child in a Christlike manner. The church family commits to uphold the family through prayer and support. Any family that has not had the privilege of dedicating their child to the Lord is invited to participate. Simply let us know in the box at the bottom of your READY FOR A NEXT STEP? card, and write down your child's name.
Next Sunday we will begin a brand new series called, "God is more than ENOUGH." If you've ever found yourself saying, "I've had enough," then this series is for you! So many of us are tired.. tired of trying to measure up, tired of chasing things that don't satisfy, and tired of looking for peace and contentment. This series will help you discover that God is enough, regardless of your circumstances. Here is a sneak peak of: God is more than ENOUGH
Well, we're really excited to meet new guests after the service at the Welcome Table. And, we look forward to helping each of you connect and take your spiritual next steps. Now, let's continue to open our hearts and hear encouragement from God's Word.
