As any long term EBC’er can testify, it has been a tremendous joy to build into K.C. Nowack and see and experience the fruits of our investment. From his AWANA leaders who helped him learn his first memory verses as a little boy to those who have financially supported his studies with 10,000 Fathers Worship School, each of us has had a role to play in his spiritual growth. Therefore, I am most excited to announce that the elders have offered K.C. a year long internship starting this month.
Over the next year, K.C. will continue the educational pursuit he began with 10,000 Fathers Worship School through intensive discipleship in a real world context. He will develop and refine his own philosophy of worship, explore the possibility of pursuing future vocational ministry, and continue the development of his character and competency as both a child of God and a worship leader.
Please be sure to congratulate him when you see him next. Also, I encourage you to commit K.C. in prayer over the next year. Pray that God would “do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think” for K.C. in the next year.

Meals Needed for On Goal Soccer Camp coaches
It looks as though Spring has finally arrived. The snow has melted, and the field at Leavitt Park will soon be ready. This year we have approximately 15 coaches traveling to Laconia. They combine their passion for soccer with their love for Jesus Christ in this amazing ministry.
As a church community we are asked to pray for, house and feed these young disciples.
We have two online meal train sign-ups available. One for lunch and one for dinner. If you are interested in signing up to provide a meal, please click this link.
Scroll down to the bottom and click “Volunteer” button and fill out the form. Betsy Weller, the On Goal Coaches Meals Coordinator, will follow up with you!
