We meet the first Sunday of every month (Gathering) to celebrate who God is and how He is working in our lives. We take communion; we sing; we pray.
The rest of the month all of our people meet in groups around the city with their friends and family to party, talk about their faith, and serve their community together.
We welcome kids at every point. Our Gathering is designed so that every age can participate. We believe in families following Jesus together so we encourage groups to bring kids to the party, let them participate in the spiritual conversations, and include them in serving.
The church building...
We don’t have one. We also don’t have programs, and we are not focused on Sunday morning.
Because we want our time, money, and talents to be used "out" rather than "in."
We want as much church to happen in our groups and in every day life as possible. Since our resources and people are not tied to a church building or programs we can put them back into our communities. When people, time, energy, and money are tangibily used to share Jesus with family, friends, neighbors, and communities lives are changed.
The mission of EDC is to:
bring God near to people by living like Jesus every day.
It’s our prayer that people will have an encounter with God and in Toledo we’ll see healing, second-chances, the outcasts included, brokenness restored, and people and communities transformed.
