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.

 A Little Extra.... QUOTE FOR THE WEEK:
What a great time at the EFC-ER's Yearly Meeting
May Dr. Wayne's Monday evening's question continue to challenge us: 
Are we 'passively pursuing God '  
or are we enthusiastically, whole-heartedly  
IN PURSUIT of His presence and His transforming will?
We hope you've enjoyed catching up with news from the EFC-ER office.
More information and news will be coming each week.
Please send Donna any of your suggestions and/or ideas for this weekly encouragement.
Stay tuned.... we've just begun!
