Reopening of ECC - Offering
on June 4th, 2020
Like communion, we previously passed offering plates that involved many hands making contact with the same surfaces. As mentioned before, these practices cannot happen if we hope to maintain a safe and clean worship environment. Read more about what to expect regarding offering at ECC. Online giving will be strongly encouraged, but you still can bring your envelopes and gifts on Sundays and submit them in person.

Communion is an essential aspect of the weekly worship experience at Englewood Christian Church. We share in this celebratory occasion to remember the sacrifice of our Savior that provided our restoration with God.
Reopening of ECC - Digital
on June 2nd, 2020
6. Digital I think everyone has had to stretch their minds a bit during these recent times and dip their toes into the digital world. Do you remember how little you knew about these things when all of this began? You’ve come so far! As we resume meeting together in person, there are several “digital” formats that will continue on for the month of June.
Core 52 Chapter 39 - Baptism
on June 2nd, 2020
Just a few weeks ago, I was able to witness a young girl commit her life to Christ and be baptized. It was an amazing sight that I will never grow weary of seeing, leading, participating in or simply watching from the audience. For a child or student, that moment is usually the culmination of many years of prayers, conversations, discussions, teachings and more between parents and their children. ...
Reopening of ECC - Fellowship
on June 1st, 2020
5. Fellowship One of the most cherished and anticipated moments each week at our worship gatherings is our Friendship time. Our church family just loves to greet each other handshakes, hugs and warm greetings all in the name of Christ and with the purpose of encouraging each other in love! Unfortunately, during this first phase of reopening for our campus and the return to LIVE worship services together, we will not be able to engage in any of those warm fellowship activities that involve any contact with each other.
Reopening of ECC - Seating
on May 31st, 2020
4. Seating In order to create the safest and “cleanest” environment possible, we will block off seating in our worship center to create an “every-other-row” seating arrangement. This will allow us to provide seats for everyone that have not previously been used on that same day.

Core 52 Chapter 38 - The Ascension
on May 27th, 2020
In 1995, Heather and I were blessed with the opportunity to visit the Holy Land. We attended with a group of students from Florida Christian College (now JUFL) and several other people from churches around the state. Ironically, Fred Smith was one of those who attended, and the trip was led by his younger brother, James Smith – known by most of us from the college as “Doc Smith.” (Needless to sa...
Core 52 Chapter 37 - Holy Spirit
on May 19th, 2020
Just over a year ago, the Marvel movie saga relating to the Avengers came to its climactic conclusion with Avengers: Endgame. This was a massive story arch that extended into well over 20 films during the past 10 years. Several of the main characters had their own independent movies to tell their backstory, and one of those in particular is my favorite. Captain America, played by Chris Evans, tel...
