Welcome to Church With EFCC

Our latest series is about gaining vision for and an invitation to a life that is not so new and not so normal. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be looking at some of the ways the early church lived – so it’s not new, it’s 2,000 years old. But as we’re also going to see, it’s not normal, it was very strange. Following Jesus is anything but normal. In one of his letters, Peter called Christians a “peculiar people.” That means we’re different; even strange.

Be prepared because over the next few weeks, you will be challenged to jump off the “normal” path and onto something that’s weird. Strange. Abnormal. We hope you are enjoying the Not So New, Not So Normal series.
