Operation CC

We want boys and girls around the world to know that God loves them and has not forgotten them during this time of fear and uncertainty. Children need great joy now more than ever. Most of all, they need the hope found only in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Will you partner with us to share that glorious hope with boys and girls around the world—many of whom have never heard the Name of Jesus?

Greetings Emmanuel,

 

As we continue to walk through 2021, the Missions Team is thrilled to share an update regarding our local, regional and global impact. As you may recall in February, we began a close consulting relationship with our denomination Converge. A team of EBC members were selected and began work with Converge to begin the 2:10 Focus Coaching process. The 210 process is helping Emmanuel prayerfully identify how God is calling us to focus our passions and resources to share the gospel cross-culturally.

 

We need your help! Over the next couple of weeks, the 210 Team would like to collect as much information as possible about who we are as a church. We would like the survey completed and information gathered by Sunday, August 8. Attached is a link to participate. The DNA survey will help reveal our church’s unique talents, global passions and resources. We believe that God is uniquely and strategically calling us to use our resources as a church locally as well as globally.

 

Please continue to be praying for the EBC leadership and the 210 team for discernment as we continue on this journey to discover how God has made and called EBC uniquely.

 

 “Go into the world to make disciples” and bring the hope of Christ to the nations.

 

The 2:10 Focus Team,
