Miller Elementary and Bauer Partnership

Get involved in this amazing ministry.

Partnership with Miller Elementary

​ECC is entering our 18th year in partnership with Miller Elementary School and God is at work! We are so blessed to be a part of the school’s journey towards success. God has led us each step of the way, revealing what we are to do and when! We have so many opportunities to get involved in this amazing ministry. We know that life is full, so we have opportunities to volunteer one time, occasionally, and even weekly!

For more information on any of these opportunities, please email Ronda Ooms.

Miller Back to School Carnival

ECC will co-host our annual Back to School Carnival with Bauer at Miller Elementary School. It is always lots of fun and a great way to bless the Miller families as they prepare for the start of the new school year! We are putting together a team of volunteers to help run games and to help with the meal we have that evening. Sign up here.

Volunteer at Miller Elementary School for 2024-2025

We’re so excited that ECC volunteers are able to be back at Miller Elementary School again this year! There are a variety of ways that we are able to help including in a classroom, the library, at lunch or recess, or several other areas. We begin our monthly family dinners at Miller beginning in September. We will need a team of at least 10 people to help the meals go smoothly.

If you are interested in volunteering at Miller, please sign up below and Ronda will be in touch with you to discuss what might be the best fit might be for you!

Bauer Community Center Meals

Every Thursday evening, ECC congregants, gather at Bauer Community Center to put together a hot meal for families in the Lafayette area. We are now serving in the gym so that those who come can sit down, enjoy their meal, and talk with others. Our serving time is 5:30-6:00pm. We serve meals every Thursday that Bauer Community Center is open throughout the year.


If you are interested in helping serve, please email Ronda or use the form below.
