EKL Youth Group
Movie & Pizza for EKLYG & Friends
Sunday, October 22
11am 2pm At EKLC
Join us for a pizza lunch and a viewing of Miracles from Heaven: Based on the incredible true story of the Beam family, when Christy discovers her 10 year-old daughter Anna has a rare, incurable disease, she becomes a ferocious advocate for her daughter's healing as she searches for a solution. After Anna has a freak accident, an extraordinary miracle unfolds in the wake of her dramatic rescue that leaves medical specialists mystified, her family restored and their community inspired.

AED Refresher Class
November 12 Following Worship
EKLC has an AED (automated external defibrillator)!  It is located on the wall on the second floor of our education wing near the restrooms and down the hall from both our church offices and our sanctuary.  We are hosting an AED refresher class after church on Sunday, November 12th in Friendship Hall for teens through adults interested in learning more about it.  You don’t have to have a medical background, only an interest in learning how to use the AED in our church building in case of a medical emergency.  If you have any questions, feel free to call Trudy Spike at 608-884-6515. See you there!
