Don’t miss the new Power Minute video series that began Feb 1st. Pastor Mark will send you a daily email with a YouTube video called “Power Minute”. Videos will be sent Monday through Friday for 5 weeks. These are very short videos (aiming for 1 to 2 minutes) with a verse of Scripture and an insight from that verse. It is intended to encourage you each day to think on the things above and draw near to God.
If you wish to receive these videos, sign up by sending him an email at email@example.com. Just say, “send me the videos.”
Sunday evening Bible Study on February 7th will be one hour earlier at 5:00 pm for this Sunday only. Join us for a new series on the Book of Galatians!
Our 9:00 am “Sunday School” classes have been cancelled for February. A decision about March classes will be made toward the end of February.
Jonathon Hastings went to be with the Lord on January 16th.
You are invited to a Memorial Service that will be held in honor of our dear brother in our auditorium on Sunday (January 31st) at 6:00 pm.
Dear ERCC Family and Friends,
As everyone should know by now, Phillip Walton will be retiring on December 27th after 32 years as the senior pastor of our church. The pandemic prevents us from having the BIG luncheon, dinner, or party we’d all like to have with Phillip and Jane before they leave. HOWEVER, we still have an opportunity to meet with them before they depart.
Drop by ERCC between 1:30 pm and 3:30 pm on Sunday, December 27th for a Retirement Open House with Phillip and Jane in the fellowship hall. Follow the normal safety protocols we’ve become accustomed to, but the idea for this Open House in the fellowship hall is to provide time for people to come and go throughout the afternoon so the whole church isn’t there at the same time. This is your chance to personally express your appreciation and feelings for them as they begin their well deserved retirement life.
If you have a special gift, you’re welcome to bring it then. But if you’re considering a monetary gift…please know that they just learned their water well has gone dry and drilling a new well will cost almost $17,000! If you want to contribute toward paying that cost, a donation box will be available for those gifts as well (no pun intended).
If you have any questions, talk to Sylvia Rodriguez, Rose Kline, or Trudy Workman.
P.S. There will be Cake!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
May God bless you as you continue to provide your tithes and offerings, even while our worship services are only online!
While we are meeting in person, we are also livestreaming the 10:00 am Worship Service for those not ready to to join us in person. You can find it on YouTube by searching “Evers Road Christian Church” or using the link found at: www.facebook.com/erccsa . Please understand that the audio and video quality will be lower than our online services at the height of the pandemic when the building was closed. The setup required for a high quality online presentation is simply not practical simultaneously with attendees in the building. We will continue to do the best we can, but apologize in advance if it is less than what you’ve come to expect from our previous online services.
NOTE: Beginning October 17th we are restarting smaller group gatherings including Saturday Men’s Prayer Breakfast, Sunday School, Sunday Evening Bible Study, and Wednesday Evening Bible Study. Some of these will be meeting in alternate spaces so everyone can maintain physical distance. Check out the details HERE. We’d love to see you in person again!
