We meet the first Sunday of every month (Gathering) to celebrate who God is and how He is working in our lives. We intentionaly take space to pause, reflect, pray, and receive communion.
The rest of the month we encourage our people to join groups that we like to call the meeting place for the seeker and the skeptic. Our groups focus on informal discussion designed to create community while searching for God. Have a life/spiritual/faith question? Ask it! Need to talk? Do it! Wrestling with God? Bring it. Let's do this journey together.
The church building...
We don’t have one. We also don’t have programs, and we are not focused on Sunday morning.
Because we want our time, money, and talents to be used "out" rather than "in."
We want as much church to happen in our groups and in every day life as possible. Since our resources and people are not tied to a church building or programs we can put them back into our communities. When people, time, energy, and money are tangibily used to share Jesus with family, friends, neighbors, and communities lives are changed.
The mission of EDC is to:
bring God near to people by living like Jesus every day.
It’s our prayer that people will have an encounter with God and in Toledo we’ll see healing, second-chances, the outcasts included, brokenness restored, and people and communities transformed.
