This summer we are setting aside time to come together as a church and echo God’s love for our community through service. Soon, Johnson City will be covered with GFC members engaging in projects at organizations, schools, and neighborhoods to make a huge impact!

ECHO will be held on Saturday, July 25. This year, ECHO will look a little different. There will be various opportunities to serve organizations onsite from 9am – 12pm and we are working with each organization to create guidelines for your safety. There will also be service opportunities that can be completed from home and dropped off at the church on July 25, between 9am and 3pm.

All projects will be family friendly, unless noted within registration. Shirts are not available for purchase this year, but we encourage everyone to wear their favorite ECHO shirts from years’ past!
