- The EC Denim & Diamonds Auction Gala is May 7, 2014. Preparations are underway for this important fundraiser. The Auction Committee is busy collecting donations and creating interesting theme baskets for the silent auction. We have an urgent need for large baskets. If you have any baskets you are not using that can be donated to EC’s Auction Committee please send them to any EC school office or drop them off at the T.R.I.P. store. Please call 973-427-9294 with any questions. Tickets will be available soon. Visit www.ecdenimanddiamonds.com to learn more about this year’s exciting Auction Gala.
- Global Missions in your own home: EC is currently seeking host families for International Students aged between 13 and 18 for their 2014-Summer programs which will take place from July 19 - August 6 & August 3 - 23. Many of these students have never heard the gospel and this would be a great opportunity for global mission’s right in your own home. As a host family, you will offer a young International Student the opportunity to discover America through your eyes. Your family will not only gain a new family member, you will also learn about a different culture, its values and traditions, language, food, and more. The International Students will be in class or activities every weekday. Families just need to provide room and board and a safe, loving environment in the evenings and on weekends. A stipend is provided to cover all hosting expenses. For more information please contact James Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 908.328.9668
