WELCOME TO ECM
If you’re looking for a campus ministry at K-State where you can come together with other young adults to deepen your spirituality, think about important issues, develop healthy relationships and make a difference in the world by serving others, you’ve come to the right place! ECM is a place and a people where engaging in these things—spirituality, study, sociality and service—are part of everything we do.
ECM stands for Ecumenical Campus Ministry. “Ek-you-men-i-kuhl” is an ancient Greek word that describes efforts to bring together diverse elements in a way that celebrates their unity. More specifically, it usually refers to the efforts of Christians to seek and to celebrate the things that unite people of faith, rather than dwell on the things that divide us. “Ecumenical” is a still great word, even if it is hard to pronounce. It aptly describes what ECM—and two thousand years of Christian practice at its best—is all about. To find out more about what that looks like at K-State, read on.
NEWS ABOUT ECM
ECM's Building will be closed from Thurday, November 26 until 5pm on Sunday, November 29 for Fall Break.
We are pleased to announce that ECM has installed several solar panels on its new campus center, as part of the Creation Care initiative of Change the World Sunday in our community! Our students are excited about this investment in their future!
After fifty-two years at 1021 Denison Ave, the ECM Board of Directors elected to relocate the ministry to 904 Sunset, just two blocks away from our previous location, where we built a new, more versatile and energy-efficient building that will serve as our campus center for future generations of K-State students and the Manhattan community. Now that the building is finished, we're excited for the next fifty years of ministry at K-State.
