Yearly Meeting is this weekend! Join the online sessions this Saturday, July 18 at 8:30am at www.efcer.org/ym20 . You won't want to miss this special day of worship, prayer, teachings, and reports as we celebrate what God is doing in and through EFC-ER.
Recorded Pastors: The deadline for  Equipping Units is July 31. Find out more and submit your units at  www.efcer.org/equippingunits.
Please pray for Voicu and Ana Marian in Romania that the Spirit will lead them to creative opportunities for ministry this summer. Due to COVID-19, they are not able to hold their traditional summer camps but are hoping to do a Day Camp and VBS instead. Since restrictions have been lifted, Voicu has also been able to reconnect with six junior high boys who are eager to resume wood shop (John 14:26).

Congratulations to Pastor Gilberto Cruz Aparicio and the Iglesia de Restauracion Nueva Vision in Bassett, VA, who celebrated the five-year anniversary of their church plant this past weekend! Great things are ahead for this young church!
Help Prepare a Home for the Aufrances in the United States
There is a practical way that you and/or your church can come alongside Dave and Cindy Aufrance as they prepare to retire from the mission field. We invite you to help with the renovation of the home they have purchased beside their daughter and son-in-law’s house near Columbus, Ohio. You may bring workers to help with the hands-on work or contribute financial gifts to help cover costs. Lots of different skill levels are needed. The goal is to complete our portion of this project by August 6th when they return to the U.S. Please contact Rick or Joyce Sams for more information at 330-206-1968 or at  rsams53@gmail.com . Thank you!
