Welcome to EFC-ER's Weekly Encourager. We trust that this will become a bright spot each week in your emails. The purpose of the Weekly Encourager is to provide up-to-the minute information about region-wide events, prayer requests and helpful resources from the local churches. We will close each email with a quick quote and/or survey to gather helpful resources from leaders to share with our wider Friends family.

Attention Pastors! Details on a Marriage "Prepare/Enrich" Seminar (7/23/14) have been sent to every church.


A special note from David Mabry, coordinator for this seminar:

If you have not registered, but you would still like to participate, please call me or e-mail me ASAP. I can take credit card payment over the phone or I can take your word on a check to be delivered at Yearly meeting. BUT I must know by 2:00pm tomorrow (Thursday, July 17th)!

Also, if you are already a certified Prepare Enrich facilitator you may sit in on the training for FREE!!! Normally, "Refresher Training" cost $50-$75, but for EFC-ER Pastors it is complementary. If you wish to take advantage of this opportunity, please call or E-mail me ASAP so I can order the correct amount of lunches. You are also encouraged to bring your PE kit/materials to the training to follow along more closely.
