gathers weekly on Tuesdays at 5:30 p.m.
at Chapel of the Cross. Programs may include
music, visiting speakers, and fellowship. The program time is always
followed by a dinner prepared by one of the family
groups. It is during our time together on Tuesday evenings that we
plan most of our retreats and outreach work.
In addition to our annual Beach Retreat, ECM
goes on an overnight retreat every fall with other retreats possible in the
spring, and offers many opportunities on the Diocesan and
Provincial level for retreats and conferences.
Chapel of the Cross maintains an active partnership with Habitat for Humanity,
and ECM takes an active role in building houses and organizing work
for Humanity. In addition, ECM is active
in parish fundraisers such as the ABC sale, which this year generated more
than $20,000 solely for area charities and parish outreach work. A new program for 2006 is our commitment to Camp Coast Care, a join Luthern and Episcopal reconstruction outreach project to aid victims of Hurricane Katrina relief and reconstruction.
addition to our weekly fellowship meetings, the Chapel
of the Cross offers four Eucharist services every
Sunday, at 7:30, 9:00, 11:15 a.m., and 5:15 p.m.,
and a 9:00 p.m. Sung Compline, and welcomes students
in all aspects of parish life.
