“Invite Your One”


October 13, 2019

Invite Your One is an Outreach Strategy that will enable our church to grow. It is based on the Great Commission that our Lord gave us in Matthew 28:16-20. It is really simple, each of us at ERBC commit to inviting at least one person to our special Invite Your One day, Sunday, October 13th. I will be talking about it more in the days and weeks to come. So start praying about who you’re going to invite!

May God Richly Bless You,


Pastor Richard

Wednesday Morning Bible Study

An ongoing weekly Bible study is being held each Wednesday morning from 10:30- Noon. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to better know God’s Word. The learning, fellowship, and discussion are sure to allow “iron to sharpen iron” (Proverbs 27:17)! Worksheets are provided.
