A Christian Passover Seder

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to celebrate a Passover meal? Have you ever wondered how the elements of the meal tell the story of God redeeming his people? If so, you now have an opportunity to celebrate this meal with your Church family, to experience the tastes and smells, and to hear it explained in this highly interactive celebration of our redemption.

It is a “family” meal, so all ages are welcome and invited, but we will need to know who will be coming, so please call or email Joe by March 25 to reserve your place at the table. The meal will take place on Wednesday, March 28, from 5:30-7:30pm in our Fellowship Hall (downstairs).


Palm Sunday Egg Hunt and Brunch

Over the next week, please bring plastic eggs filled with candy and treats. Then on Sunday, March 25, (the week before Easter) bring all of your children and grandchildren at 9:30am where we will share a brunch together in our Fellowship Hall (downstairs) and then after the eggs have been hidden around the church yard, the children will search for the eggs.

Once the eggs have been found and all the baskets (and bellys) are full, we will head to the sanctuary for our Palm Sunday worship service at 11:00.


Easter Sunrise Service

"Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb…” (Mark 16:2)

According to Mark, the first Easter Sunday began early when just after sunrise three women first discovered the good news of Jesus’ resurrection. Come join people from all over Eldorado early this Easter morning, April 1 to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection in this brief service hosted by the Ministerial Alliance.

The service begins at 7am at the First National Bank gazebo. There will be music, readings, and prayer – not to mention coffee, donuts, and breakfast burritos!

How to Help after the Hurricane

As we watched all of the news of Hurricane Harvey hitting the Texas coast, we have been praying for the homes, and businesses, and schools, and hospitals, and pets, and livestock, etc. that have been affected. And most of all, we have been praying for the people who have been affected by this storm in life-changing ways. We continue to pray for those in need, and we thank God for the evidences we have already seen of his grace and mercy at work even in the midst of such devastation.

While we continue to pray, now we are asking "what else can we do?" This is a great question. And as you know, the answer to this question changes as quickly as the situations we are responding to. After contacting several other pastors in our presbytery who each have their finger on the pulse of the situation, they are in agreement that the best things we can do for now are to pray and to give financially to established relief agencies. Our ECO denomination has partnered with World Renew as one such agency.

Please continue to pray for all those affected by this storm. Please pray for the relief workers as well. We will keep you posted as the answer to "what else can we do?" changes. In the meantime, please consider donating to World Renew.




Read Scripture


This plan will take you through the entire bible in two years. The scriptures are divided up into sixteen “chapters” and organized in semi-chronological order. You’ll read 1-3 chapters a day, and sometimes skim through larger portions that contain genealo­gies, census information, etc. Click Here for a 3-minute overview of this plan.



One Psalm is listed with each reading for you to slowly pray through, making its words your own. By the end you’ll have prayed through the book of Psalms 2½ times.



Each day you come to a new biblical book there will be a short animated video on The Bible Project website about that book’s design and message and what to look for as you read (Click Here for a sample). In addition to videos regarding books of the Bible, you will find theme videos relating to several topics that appear throughout Scripture (Click Here for a sample).



Free downloadable posters from each Read Scripture video are available on The Bible Project website.

For more information about the read­ing plan and how you can support The Bible Project visit:



To read along on your smartphone or other device, install the Read Scripture app (by Crazy Love Ministries) from the App Store or from Google Play.



Each week, you are invited to gather with others who are reading the same scriptures (Click Here for a printable bookmark/schedule of weeks 1-8). Together, we will share a meal, watch one or two of the videos, and mainly discuss what we are reading. What does it say? What does it mean? What does that mean for us? Wednesdays from 5:30-7:30pm.
