WE MEET SUNDAYS AT 11AM AT
THE CELC BUILDING IN EAST WALNUT HILLS
1301 East McMillan Street Cincinnati, Ohio 45206. There's a map at the bottom of this page.
For some people, attending church can be an intimidating endeavor. Here we explain what to expect to help take the edge off what's intended to be a helpful experience.
Where to go:
Parking is available on the street along both sides of East McMillan and Ashland Avenue.
Enter in the main entrance facing East McMillan. Once inside the lobby, grab a cup of coffee if you'd like. (Also note: restrooms are located on both sides of this lobby level.) Then proceed up either set of stairs to the worship area.
What to wear:
Feel free to dress casually. In the summer, people wear flip-flops and shorts in our gatherings. In the winter, jeans and long sleeves are the norm. But if you want to wear a dress or suite/tie, be you—you'll feel at home whatever you choose.
What we do:
Our gatherings are intentionally simple, as we believe the earliest Christians worshiped modestly. We have a short time of musical worship, with some Scripture readings scattered throughout. Every week we invite Christians to observe communion in order to focus our thoughts on Jesus' sacrifice on the cross. We then have a message brought by one of our church leaders, where we thoroughly examine a portion of the Bible to observe God's message to us. Sunday gatherings tend to last about an hour.
What about kids?
Echo Kids consists of supervised child care for infants through kindergartners. School-aged kids stay in the main worship gathering throughout our service; we have activity packets to keep these children occupied during our gatherings. Our children's rooms are adjacent to the auditorium and fully secure from outside access.
