Ellettsville Christian Church
Ellettsville Christian Church is a church of roughly 300 people in Ellettsville (which is just outside of Bloomington), IN. Realizing that our relationship with Christ is a journey and that none of us is 'there' yet, we seek to be a church that helps people take their next steps toward God--whether that is their very first step, or whether they've been walking with God for years. Ellettsville is a small town (6500 or so) with it's own high school (Edgewood) so it has 'small town values' while at the same time its proximity to Blooming (and Indiana University) brings a diversity to the population and access to bigger city amenities with regard to the arts, sports, and etc. ECC is working to become more community-focused and is looking for an engaging, energetic person to join our current team and help lead our Children's Ministry into the next season that God has for us.
