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

  • Questions and answers RCL Year A, Easter Day My kids are of the age now of relentless curiosity. They want to know everything. They are full of questions. They listen to Jim and me talk and want to know what we’re talking about. They ask what that picture in the newspaper is showing. They want to know what happens ...
  • Outreach at Easter Come one, come all, to the Easter Egg Hunt following the 10:30 service this Sunday! The children will be contributing their Easter Bucks (found in their Easter eggs) to three outreach opportunities that serve children. They welcome your contributions, too, if you would like. The three opportunities are: Operation Starfish, feeding hungry children in the ...
  • Who is this? RCL Year A, Palm Sunday It’s a confusing day. I wonder how you would explain what we’re doing today to someone who’d never been to church, who didn’t know the story we’ve just told. What is it we’re doing here? Why did we start outside? Why were we handed palm branches trimmed only yesterday off our ...
  • New Online Sign-Up System for Montgomery Meals! Calling all volunteers! Those that are regular Montgomery Meals volunteers and those that have never volunteered at Montgomery Meals. Now is your opportunity to serve those less fortunate – when your schedule allows!  Let’s remember why ECA has served InnVision for over 20 years: to help those less fortunate; to use our gifts of food preparation and ...
  • Youth Group Service Opportunity Sunday, April 27 is the youth’s environmental service day, cleaning up after and sorting trash from the Big Sur International Marathon. This will be a great “everybody wins” scenario. First the youth will get to see spectacular Big Sur. Students can earn 5 volunteer hours for their school service requirements. Their service will divert trash ...

  • Unbound RCL Year A, 5 Lent Reading that story aloud gives me chills. It’s one of the gospels I almost hate to preach on, because I just don’t want to say anything after those last words. ‘Unbind him, and let him go.’ This is the sign beyond all other signs in John’s gospel. This is the fullest revelation ...
  • Seeing is believing RCL Year A, 4 Lent Now, if you were paying attention during the reading of the gospel, you might have noticed that the story the kids just acted out is a different one. They gave us a story found in Luke’s gospel of a man who is blind and who is healed by Jesus – a ...
  • South Sudanese Youth Opportunity Presentation Join us on Sunday April 6th, after the 10:30 service. Gabriel Makuie has brought back photos and two short videos of the students we sponsor in school in Kenya. Gabriel is secretary at Hope With South Sudan (our parent organization). He is a senior at San Jose State, majoring in Environmental Studies. Eventually he plans to ...
  • Thirsty for living water? RCL Year A, 3 Lent This is not actually an attendance question, but how many of you were here last week? Do you remember Nicodemus in last week’s gospel? The powerful man of authority, sneaking in to Jesus under cover of night to find out if his suspicions can be proven, if Jesus really is the ...
