Showing We Care for Our WORLD
Supporting & U.S. Missions, and Starting New Churches…
We are a church that supports missions.
This focus will continue as we assist missionaries around the globe who are reaching out to every identified people group, especially those in highly unchurched countries.
At a time when we can’t send our mini-mission teams, we’re increasing our commitment to those front-liners who serve on foreign fields year-round.
These missionaries are sharing Christ, starting new churches, and serving the physical and spiritual needs of those in some of the world’s most important (and most dangerous) mission fields.
With your support, we will continue to feed the hungry and drill wells to bring clean water to those who lack it, along with the living water of Jesus Christ to everyone.
Showing We Care for Our COMMUNITY
Reaching the People of Southern California with the Love of Jesus…
Many people have been deeply and personally impacted by the pandemic and, as a result, are in need of basic resources such as food and shelter.
Through new partnerships with Habitat for Humanity and Union Rescue Mission we will help build homes and provide food and shelter for those experiencing homelessness.
We will also help feed the hungry in inner city Los Angeles through a joint partnership with Children’s Hunger Fund and the R.O.C.K. Church.
We will collect food at ERBC, take it to Children’s Hunger Fund in Sylmar for packing, and the R.O.C.K. Church will distribute it to their community.
The SHOWING WE CARE Special Offering will help expand our evangelism efforts, so we can continue to reach our community with the love of Jesus!
Meeting the Needs of the Less Fortunate Through Community Ministry…
We are a church that serves the “least of these.”
Through the SHOWING WE CARE Special Offering we have a unique opportunity to help those in greatest need in our community, both spiritually and physically. We will continue to partner with local organizations that are making a real difference in the lives of the less fortunate.
A new partnership with CarePortal will enable us to come alongside foster families in our community and provide them with what they need to welcome foster kids into their homes.
Whether it’s a crib, or bedding, or diapers, or formula, or groceries, CarePortal is an online platform that brings the needs of hurting children and families in our community to our immediate attention enabling us to be the hands and feet of Jesus to those in need. There are 33,000 kids in Foster Care in Los Angeles County. Just because we can’t help all of them shouldn’t stop us from doing everything we can to help some.
Your Showing We Care gift will help ERBC to provide some of the most basic needs for children who have been placed in Foster Care.
(Jesus) “I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!” – Matthew 25:40
Showing We Care for Our CHURCH
Providing New Digital Spiritual Growth Tools for Our Kids & Adults…
We want to expand our digital outreach.
We already had plans in place to upgrade our digital ministry and provide online streaming of our worship services during 2020. We just weren’t planning to implement those improvements quite as quickly as we did. While we continue to pray for a return to meeting in person soon, we still want to expand our digital outreach.
We will also have more Parking Lot Worship Services, Drive-Thru events, and other opportunities to engage with kids and families.
We are a church that loves to invest in children and families. Through the SHOWING WE CARE Special Offering, we will be able to provide more tools to help children experience God’s love.
We consider it an honor to help families have strong homes and to help raise children to follow Jesus. To do this we have designed a fantastic experience for children on Sunday called E-ROCK KIDS. Our goal is for E-ROCK Kids to be the best hour of your child’s week.
