Congregational Meeting May 2, 2021

A congregational meeting of the members of Evers Road Christian Church will be held on May 2nd, 2021 immediately after the morning worship service (approximately 11:15 am).

There are two items on the agenda for the meeting:

A.  Vote on a By-Laws amendment regarding the appointment of Elders
B.  Vote to confirm additional Elders

The proposed amendment to Article V of the ERCC By-Laws is posted on the bulletin board in the foyer and copies are available in the church office.

Cancelled: Prayer Walk on Saturday, April 17th

 

UPDATE:  Due to the cold and strong winds, the “official” ERCC prayer walk is cancelled today.  But feel free to walk and pray on your own.


The next ERCC Prayer Walk is on Saturday, April 17th, at 4:00 pm in the O P Schnabel Park.  The address is 9606 Bandera Road, but the main entrance is under construction, so enter via Verde Drive which is west of the main entrance (see map below)  The park has 8.2 miles of natural, pugmill, concrete and asphalt trails which are great for Prayer Walks!

What Is A Prayer Walk? A prayer walk is pretty simple,  It just brings together two wonderful things:  walking & praying!  It’s a time we can be intentional about exercising and being intentional about  prayer.

We’ll meet at the entrance of the park, have a group prayer, and then everyone can walk at their own pace, for as long as you’d like, while meditating and praying.

Join us!

When:  Saturday, April 17th, at 4:00 pm
Where: OP Schnabel Park, 9606 Bandera Road

Spring Cleaning is Saturday morning, April 3rd!

We need volunteers to help with our annual spring cleaning.  This is the time of year when we get ready for our spring and summer events by getting the church grounds and property repaired and cleaned.  We have jobs on the outside and on the inside so lots of help is needed!

Easter Breakfast at ERCC

christ-is-risenJoin us on Easter morning (April 4th) for breakfast at ERCC.  We’ll have our traditional breakfast tacos, muffins, and other yummy breakfast foods ready at 8:45 am until 9:45 am.  Plan A (good weather) is to enjoy our breakfast and fellowship outside between the fellowship hall and main building.  Plan B (bad weather) is to move inside the fellowship hall.  There will be an Easter Egg Hunt for the kids at approximately 9:15 am.

And then at 10:00 am we will celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior and worship our God together in the main auditorium!

Remember:  Easter is a good time to invite your “unchurched” friends, people who have drifted away from the church, and even strangers to church.  Everyone needs to hear the gospel and the Easter celebration is a great opportunity!

CHRIST IS RISEN!

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!

Live Stream

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!
