Join us for Sunday worship at 7:30 and 10:30 AM

Here you will find a community of joyful and generous hearts, an extended family of people of all ages and walks of life – all of us seeking and searching after God together. Every week we gather, in worship and out of it, to break bread, to explore God’s Word through scripture, to share stories of God in our lives and to be Jesus’ people in the world. Come join us on our journey!

We hope this website tells you something about us and our path. But the best way to find out more is to come and see. Join us for worship or for any of the other activities and ministries listed here – or contact us to ask questions. We look forward to meeting you along our shared path.

What’s Happening At ECA

  • All Parish Meeting After church on Sunday, November 2, we will have a congregational meeting facilitated by our diocesan consultant, Joanna Shreve.  Please plan to come and celebrate the work we are doing together in this place.  A simple BBQ lunch will be served.  
  • Love in Action Proper 25A  20 Pentecost – October 26, 2014 Leviticus 19:1-2, 15-18; Psalm 1; I Thessalonians 2:1-8; Matthew 22:34-46 Homily preached by the Rev. Canon Linda S. Taylor Well, here we are. It seems like a very long time since I first began talking with Mary McPherson about the possibility of coming to be with you during this transition. ...
  • Give to God what is God’s: it’s simple RCL Year A, Proper 24 Well, it’s hard to believe that this is it. My last sermon to you at ECA. My last chance to say everything I want to say. Where do I begin? Do I lay out all my theology to make sure that you get it, do I tell you all the stories ...
  • Youth Group Thanksgiving Pie Sale Make your Thanksgiving preparation easier and enjoy a delicious pie baked by our youth! The youth are holding their annual scratch-baked pies sale the week before Thanksgiving. Proceeds from this fundraiser will go toward their Christmas service/giving activity (an adopted family from the EOPS program at Mission College): EOPS offers educational support services and grants to students ...
  • Your RSVP is requested RCL Year A, Proper 23 There’s nothing worse than being invited to a party that you don’t want to go to. Or even worse, a wedding. Someone invites you because they count you as a friend or as an important connection, and they want you to be part of their special day – and you just ...
  • Tending the Vineyard Karen Cuffie, Field Education Student RLC Year A Proper 22 When our family first moved to California, my husband and I were not real wine drinkers. Honestly, I couldn’t have told you the difference between a merlot and a chardonnay. Now, after living in the Valley almost 16 years, I think I’ve graduated from wine kindergarten. I’m ...
  • Go into the fields RCL Year A, Proper 21 There’s a helpful question that is sometimes asked of churches seeking to renew their mission and ministry: if the church were to burn down tomorrow, would anyone in the community care? In other words, is the church doing enough outside its walls that others in the neighborhood know and respect and ...
  • Generosity isn’t fair RCL Year A, Proper 20 Every evening when I make dinner, one of the last steps is to get out two plastic cups and the gallon of milk, pour the milk into both cups, and then crouch down so my eye is at the level of the cups, to check and be sure the level of ...
  • Youth experiences shared On Sunday, September 14th, Will Bond and Nick Martin shared their experiences from a summer trip to Philadelphia for the Episcopal Youth Event.  The EYE draws over 800 high school aged kids from all over the country and even world wide.  Will and Nick also went on a mission trip to Chester, PA.  Listen as ...
  • Being real community RCL Year A, Proper 18 At retreats and other events, I’ve had the chance to spend time with monastics over the years, and I always find myself delighted by their humor and bracing honesty. They are people who know themselves and others very well. One monk I saw as spiritual director would always warn me against ...
