Welcome to Echo Hill!

"Where do I fit in? Or maybe I don’t?" " I’m almost 30 now—when do I start feeling like a grown up?" "Why does everyone look at their phones—and not at me?" "Why did grandpa die and when will he be back?" "Am I a good person? Can I be one?" Life is full of questions...at Echo Hill we have them, too. While we might not have all the answers, we are a community of people, young and old, male and female, working and retired, going to school and still too young to even crawl, talented in many ways, and different in many ways. We get together each Sunday to talk about life, love, family and friendship.

Our minds, our hearts, our ears and our doors are always open to you.
