The All-New EC!

EC_coversfanQuestion: When you first heard about having a quiet time, what was the most confusing part?
Answer: “I think the most confusing part was knowing what to do with my quiet time and what kind of devotion to do and how to read and study my Bible.” —Courtney, EC reader

Question: What’s the hardest part about trying to memorize Scripture?
Answer: “Picking a Scripture to read and stick on. I, personally, just read whole pages and go, what did I just read?” —Cassidee, EC reader

Question: What’s the biggest obstacle to having time alone with God and studying His Word each day?
Answer: “The busyness of my day. I allow the day to slip by, and then make excuses as to how busy I was, yet there is always time for God if I choose to make the time. The best time is first thing in the morning when I first wake up.” —Dave, EC reader

Want to have a quiet time, but don’t know where to start?

Want to memorize Scripture but need help?

Want to grow in your relationship with Christ, but don’t know what to do?

Let EC help you.

One of EC’s greatest strengths has always been our emphasis on studying God’s Word and helping students dig into Scripture.

And in June 2013, we’re taking that to a whole new level. In June, Essential Connection will become a devotion-only resource. Each month, you’ll get an interactive, challenging, and deep devotion for each day of the month, with all the tools to help you learn how to study Scripture and respond to it. All of EC’s devotions will be based on God’s character, guiding you to know who He is, understand how His character affects your daily life, and how you can live out those truths in your relationships.

In addition, you’ll also get EC’s plan to read through the Bible in a year, emphasis on spiritual disciplines, prayer prompts, a challenge to memorize Scripture, and a guide to help you take sermon notes and apply what you learn to your life.

 Essential Connection will really become like your spiritual journal. There will be plenty of ways to interact with Scripture and write, sketch, or journal your prayers or thoughts. We’ve designed the “new” EC to be very personal and challenging and can’t wait to hear what you think!

Then, help us spread the word!
