 Family Promise Returns to ECUMC

Our first hosting of this year is coming January 21-27. The sign-up board is in the narthex. Or go to to signup online. Please consider how you can be a part of this valuable ministry.


It’s that time of year again to share a little love with some of our members and friends of the congregation who could use a little pick me up this time of year. Send a Valentine's Day or Thinking of You card to members on the list that can be found at the crossroads beside the Valentines box. You can use the little ones that are used for school exchanges if you would like!  You just put the recipient name on the card and sign your name and drop them in the collection box in the cross roads area.  No postage necessary – New Dawn and staff will deliver!  Cards are due back by FEBRUARY 4th so we can deliver in time for Valentine’s Day!  Our goal this year is 1100 total cards.


A word from our new children’s ministry director:

My name is Rebecca McConnell and I am very excited to be your new Director of Children's Ministry. I have a degree in Religion with a concentration in Christian Education from Florida Southern College. I have had the privilege of working in Children's Ministry for the past 13 years, both in the Florida and the North Georgia conferences. I am originally from Athens, Georgia, and I love UGA football, crafting, sewing, hiking in the North Georgia mountains, and spending time with my wonderful husband, Sean, and our sweet fur babies, Daisy and Duke. I am excited for the opportunity to be in ministry with the kids and families of East Cobb UMC and I can't wait to get started and see what God has in store for us. I look forward to beginning a new path alongside you January 22, 2018 and to meeting you all soon!
