EFC-ER pastors and churches have been given unique opportunities to creatively minister to others as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our world is hungry for peace and hope that is only found through Jesus Christ. We have all adapted to meet those needs in new ways. You have shared stories of online prayer groups, virtual Bible studies, live-streamed hymn sings, video testimonies, and digital or drive-in church services.
This Yearly Meeting is another opportunity for innovative ministry during a unique time. Due to concerns about COVID-19 and social distancing,
the Oversight Board has prayerfully made the unanimous decision to host Yearly Meeting online this year. The one-day conference will be streamed online on Saturday, July 18.
Yearly Meeting will include teaching sessions, Oversight Board and Ministry Team reports, guided prayer, and worship. Matthew Cork, Superintendent of Friends Southwest, will be the main speaker. You will not want to miss this special, one-day event! We will also provide resources and equipping workshops on our website at
. Details will be added as they are finalized.
This year’s theme is “
Momentum: Fueling A Spirit-Led Movement to Change Lives
.” Momentum, or motion, does not occur without action. The church gains movement as a result of the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and applying the teachings of Jesus. We continue to pray for you as you lead your church in innovative ways and prayerfully consider how we move forward together in ministry. Let’s pray that we will apply the preached word and move with momentum into all the world in our day.
