Book Clubs, Workshops, & Learning Cohorts

At any given time, there are a few groups gathered to go deeper in a topic, read and discuss different books together, or do workshops that are relevant to our discipleship and our understanding of what it means to follow Jesus in our time and place. If you would like to learn more about groups currently happening or about future opportunities to join a book discussion, a workshop, or a learning cohort, contact our staff (

“I remember thinking, ‘seriously God, I just can’t do this…’ I asked my homegroup to pray and they did… It may sound small, but in this season of my life it was an amazing expression of God’s mercy and love for me. The love and power of Jesus was evident in the members of ECV during that time. I truly saw the mercy and kindness of God.”
