July 12th & 19th Worship Service – Online Only

All events at ERCC remain cancelled through at least July 19th.  We will present an online service at 10:00 a.m. on July 12th and 19th using our highest quality recording setup that we’re only able to use when there is no audience in the church, so PLEASE join us online!  The services will be broadcast on our YouTube channel. The link can be found on our Facebook page at: Facebook.com/erccsa.  A facebook account is not needed to access the YouTube link.

As always, during our online services you will still be invited to participate in communion by providing your own bread or cracker, and juice or whatever substitute you have available.

Also, giving electronically using a bank transfer, credit card, or debit card, continues to be the safest option for receiving your offerings.    Click HERE to find out more information about online giving methods.  If you prefer, checks can be mailed to the church.

If you have any questions, send an email to:  admin@eversroadchristianchurch.org

ONLINE GIVING

Our ability to have regular services inside our building continues to change, but our expenses and missionary giving from the church remain constant.  The safest way to give your offering is online.

Please consider one of the three online giving options that were added this year.

Each option uses a program called “Tithely”.

You can give electronically directly from a bank account, credit card, or debit card.

There are 3 ways to use it:
1)  Downloading the Tithely app to your smartphone (more info HERE)
2)  Use a form found by clicking on the blue GIVE ONLINE button in the upper right corner above.
3)  Via a Text Message (more info HERE)

These are the safest method for giving your offering.  However, checks can still be used.    Mail them to ERCC at:  5258 Evers Road, San Antonio, 78238.  Your patience and understanding, if it takes longer than usual for checks to be cashed, is greatly appreciated.

Instructions for each online giving method is available under the “GIVING METHODS” menu option above..  If you have any questions , or problems, please send an email to Jerry Kline at admin@eversroadchristianchurch.org

May God bless you as you continue to provide your tithes and offerings, even while our worship services are only online!

Online Service
If you are not ready to worship inside our building, a live stream will still be available on the internet at www.facebook.com/erccsa . However, the audio and video quality will be significantly lower than our services during the last several weeks. The setup required for a high quality online presentation is simply not practical simultaneously with attendees in the building. We will do the best we can, but apologize in advance if it is less than what you’ve come to expect from our online services.

Status of Other ERCC Gatherings:
— 8:00 am Saturday morning Men’s Prayer Breakfasts will resume on Saturday, May 23rd.
— Other gatherings are still cancelled, but we hope to phase them in during the next several weeks. Canceled gatherings include: Sunday School classes, Sunday Evening activities, and the Wednesday night Bible Study. As we are able to resume these safely, they will be announced;

If you have any questions about our reopening, send an email to: admin@eversroadchristianchurch.org

We look forward to seeing everyone as we begin gathering again in person to Worship our God!
