Evangelic Covenant Order
Our mission is to share love, hope, and charity through JESUS CHRIST. Using scripture we want to share Christ's message of salvation so that all who might come to Him can receive eternal life, trusting Him as their Lord and Savior. We want to share with the community the goodness of Christ who has provided for our every need and can provide for your needs. Our congregation desires to help the poor, the widowed, the young, and the old who have spiritual and physical needs. Our church wants to share its warm friendly atmosphere and invites you, your family, and your friends who are looking for a place to worship and bond with like-minded Christians.
Faith, Family, Fellowship. Those three words describe what I believe to be fundamental parts of our lives as Christians. My faith began as a young boy who accepted Christ at a youth retreat with my friends. This faith became a real part of my life at the age of 17, when I learned exactly why my parents told me not to "mess around" when driving. After walking away from a pretty bad wreck with only minor injuries, I began to really evaluate what God had planned for me in my life. After studying at Grove City College for Mechanical Engineering, I was called, and perhaps persuaded to pursue being a Pastor in my early twenties. I attended a three- year Commissioned Lay Pastor program and was called to ministry by East Brook Church in 2006. At the time, neither I nor my loving wife had any idea what God was calling us to. Since being called, I have found that God has blessed our family with a loving church which desires to share the gift of God's tremendous Grace with its friends and community. Today along with being Pastor, I work as a Sales Manager for a hydraulics company, do my best to be a Godly father and husband and, in my free time, find myself immersed in the woods hunting with friends and family enjoying the world God designed for us. It is an honor to serve the Living God as a Pastor, and it is an honor to share His message of Grace with all I meet. It would be mine, and our church's privilege to have you join our family of faith.
Jonah had gone out and sat down at a place east of the city. There he made himself a shelter, sat in its shade and waited to see what would happen to the city. Then the Lord God provided a leafy plant and made it grow up over Jonah to give shade for his head to ease his discomfort, and Jonah was very happy about the plant. But at dawn the next day God provided a worm, which chewed the plant so that it withered. When the sun rose, God provided a scorching east wind, and the sun blazed on Jonah’s head so that he grew faint. He wanted to die, and said, "It would be better for me to die than to live." But God said to Jonah, "Is it right for you to be angry about the plant?" It is," he said. “And I’m so angry I wish I were dead." But the Lord said, "You have been concerned about this plant, though you did not tend it or make it grow. It sprang up overnight and died overnight. And should I not have concern for the great city of Nineveh, in which there are more than a hundred and twenty thousand people who cannot tell their right hand from their left and also many animals?"
