§ Last week the church office had some issues with the email software we were using, so we switched over to a new software called MailChimp. This is now the email carrier by which the weekly e-blast and our current 40 Days of Blessing daily reminders will be sent out. We appreciated your patience while we worked through the issue last week. If for some reason, a weekly e-blast does not go out, please refer to our website, www.ecoos.org. The weekly e-blast for Oct. 12 was posted there as is every week’s e-blast.
