Online Meetings and Gatherings for ESCC Family and others

Because we can’t physically meet at our church buildings every weekend, we are regularly hosting live, interactive Zoom gatherings and recording online meetings.  You will find the details of upcoming events each week on our events page.  Once the meetings are recorded, you will find them on our YouTube channel.  Check these 2 places regularly so you don’t miss out on anything.  These meetings are for our Youth, our Young Adults and our Not So Young AdultsEVERYONE is welcome – whether you usually worship with ESCC or you don’t.

Useful Information about using YouTube

We have made you a short clip that explains how to sign into YouTube – either from a PC or a phone.  It also explains how to log into the El Shaddai YouTube channel, and to subscribe.  This way you can get notifications, use the chat function during Sunday meetings, and experience a whole lot of other useful features.  Watch it – it’s only a few minutes long:

Using Zoom for meetings and connecting

Now that we are having to connect “virtually”, most of us are making a lot of use of Zoom.  It can be confusing and difficult to understand at times.  Here is a YouTube Clip that helps explain the basics.

Once you have the basics, here is a useful document on some “Do’s” and “Don’ts” during a Zoom meeting.

Our youth has continued to thrive in this season!  We are meeting in groups using online platforms where we learn how to hear the voice of Jesus, obey His words, & reach out to others.  If you don’t have a group to meet in & you would like one, or you have a group of friends that you’d like to start meeting with & you need some support, please contact Michael.  He will help you out!
