ECSMC goes for a one-day retreat on a Sunday in June. We usually go to a park where we have a interactive worship service, a potluck meal, games, and ice cream in the afternoon. Every other year, ECSMC has an winter retreat consisting of a Saturday evening filled with humor, a potluck, and games.
Once a month during the winter, we warm up and connect by sharing a bread and soup meal. Together with the Fellowship Commission, members volunteer to cook soup and provide fruit and bread for all to share.
