Church Metaphors (Family/Households of Faith)

Metaphors are an interesting element of language. They provide a way for us to say something with a word image. A word picture often expresses meaning better than just words.

Get 2 KNOW Us: 4EC

You may have noticed our old logo. It uses the idea of 4EC as a reminder. 4EC represents a number of ideas. You can see it is made up of a number, two letters and two words. Each has a meaning that reflects who we are and what we believe God wants to accomplish through [...]
