Resolve to Recycle Through ECC: We collect foam products for recycling! Bring in foam cups, plates, takeout containers, egg cartons, meat trays, and foam used to package electronics (no packing peanuts). The foam must bear the #6 symbol and be clean and dry. Put it in the box located in the big storage room just inside the CLC to the left. The foam will be transported to DART in Randleman for recycling. Let’s keep that foam out of the landfill! We collect CFLs and all types of batteries for recycling! Put them under the mailboxes in the downstairs hallway of the old building (across from the library). We collect electronics for recycling! Bring your
computers and peripherals, TVs, stereo equipment, electronic games and toys, phones, digital cameras, cables, small household appliances, etc. These go in or by the closet on the left just as you come into the downstairs hallway of the old building from the parking lot between the church and Pandora's Pies. Bring nothing heavier than 20 pounds, please. We’ll take them to the Guilford County Prison Farm to be recycled.
Join The Walking Group at ECC: If you would be interested in walking, please come join us at 9 am on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Some days we may move outside! Questions? See Sharon!
Have you Noticed? The walls in the Community Life Center were recently painted and they look spectacular. To keep the room looking fresh, please remember that tape, command strips, or any type of adhesive is not allowed on the painted sheetrock walls. Also, gum and glitter are not permitted in the CLC. Thank you for your cooperation!

Music Ministry Endowment Fund: Every week ECC is richly blessed with music as an important aspect of our worship. To augment the budgeted funds for these efforts your Music Committee has newly established a Music Ministry Endowment Fund. Your support of this fund may be to: General Needs, Guest Musicians, Choir Soloists, Music Camp, Hand Bell Maintenance, Organ Maintenance, Piano Maintenance, Other ___________. This Endowment Fund is an excellent channel for your expression of love at a time of memorial giving or to honor someone. It provides for beauty long after flowers will have faded. If your heart sings a melody after worship services may it inspire you to remember this newly created way for gift giving and sharing in the splendor of our music.
Salvation Army Food Pantry and Good Samaritan Fund:
Every Sunday please bring canned foods which will be taken to the Salvation Army Food Pantry. Also on the first Sunday of each month, donations may be made to our church's Good Samaritan Fund, which is used to help people in the congregation and surrounding community who have fallen on hard times.
