Dear Church Family,

By now, the topic of “reopening the country” has become a familiar one to us all. As various sectors begin the process of reopening with new guidelines and restrictions, the question might be on your mind, “When will we reopen our church campus?” Rather than offering a specific re-entry date at this time, we believe it’s best to approach this important question by sharing four principles that will guide us as we begin the discussion of re-entry onto our campus.

Guiding Principle 1: Our church has never closed.

Since our first online worship service on March 15, we have witnessed EFree Church in action in a big way! The gospel is being shared. People are coming to Christ. Lives are being touched. Each week, our online worship service gets hundreds upon hundreds of views on our Facebook page, and that doesn’t even include our church website. On Easter Sunday alone, our facebook stream received 1310 views. Praise God! In addition to Sunday worship, our groups (from children to youth to adults) are gathering online throughout the week and staying connected, not only with individuals here in our immediate area, but with those in other parts of the country and the world! And you continue to give generously to support the ministries of our church in these uncertain times. All this to say, our church has never closed!

Guiding Principle 2: We want to be a good witness to our community.

At EFree Church, our desire is to represent Christ in the best way possible to those in our community. We want to “love our neighbors” and have a spirit of cooperation. We want to honor our leaders. Gathering back on campus too soon can potentially hurt our witness and communicate to those in our community that we don’t care about them or that we’re out of touch. As a representative at the EFCA West District says, “There’s no prize for being among the first churches to reopen their doors.”

Guiding Principle 3: We’ll gather back on campus when it can be an uplifting and safe experience for everyone.

Our staff and elders are working hard to ensure that when we eventually make our way back onto our campus, everyone can have an uplifting and safe experience. By now, we all know that social distancing is not easy, and it requires much preparation and cooperation on everyone’s part. 

Guiding Principle 4: We will remain flexible.

As our plan of re-entry continues to take shape, we will remain flexible and revisit plans as needed. In this ever-changing season, we can be confident that God never changes and that He is always ready to give us guidance so that we can make wise decisions.

We look forward to seeing you in person when we gather back on campus. In the meantime, we’re excited to worship with you online this Sunday. Please join us at 9AM or 10:45AM on our facebook page or at efreedb.org as we continue our series Blessed: A Study of the Beatitudes. Pastor Tim will share a message entitled Mercy: Explained, Experienced, Extended.

We thank God for your generosity as you continue to give to support the ministries of our church, especially during these difficult times. You can give online or mail your weekly offering to the church at 3255 S Diamond Bar Blvd, Diamond Bar, CA 91765. Your checking account is the preferred method when giving online.

Jesus loves you!

Dear Church Family,

2020 began like any other year for our church. There was great anticipation for the year to come, and we were excited to see how God would work in the life of our church. Back in January, our leaders gathered for our annual Staff & Elders Weekend. One of the central themes for the weekend was the importance of remaining flexible in ministry. Needless to say, we had no idea that in just two short months, our church, like most churches around the world, would be faced with a situation that required flexibility like never before.

On March 15, we held our first online worship service. In a matter of 48 hours, from the initial announcement to the actual service, our amazing team worked tirelessly to make that first online worship experience a reality. Can you believe this coming Sunday will be our seventh online worship service?

One day, we’ll gather back together in our worship center. We don’t know exactly when that’ll be, but God does, and we can take comfort in knowing that truth. In the past month and a half, God has shown His love for our church in so many ways. He has given us opportunities to stay connected through technology. He has stirred the hearts of many in our church to be His hands and feet in the midst of this pandemic. He has shown His provision in times of difficulty through the generosity of His people. The list goes on and on. We have an awesome God! We encourage you to take some time to read the ministry reports from the first quarter of 2020 to see just how awesome He is.

Please join us this Sunday at 9AM or 10:45AM on our facebook page or at efreedb.org as Pastor Luke continues our series Blessed: A Study of the Beatitudes. If you can/need HELP during this COVID-19 pandemic or would like someone to talk with or share a confidential prayer request, please let us know.

God continues to meet the needs of our church through your faithfulness during these difficult times. Our leaders are thankful for such a kind and generous church family! You can continue to give online or mail your weekly offering to the church at 3255 S Diamond Bar Blvd, Diamond Bar, CA 91765. Your checking account is the preferred method when giving online.

Thank you!

We’ll look at each of the eight beatitudes listed in Matthew 5:1-12 over the course of the next eight weeks. Please join us at 9AM or 10:45AM on our facebook page or at efreedb.org.

Remember, if you can/need HELP during this COVID-19 pandemic, please let us know. If you would like someone to talk with or would like to share a confidential prayer request, we’re here for you as well.

In addition, we’re going to invite those of you watching our Easter Service on facebook to tag anybody you know who lives in Southern California and who works in the medical field, law enforcement, fire and rescue, or who is serving in the military. We want to thank them by adding all the names tagged during the service into a raffle. At the end of each service, we’ll reach out to the winners via facebook messenger. So start thinking of those names!

Here’s our plan for the coming weeks. Effective immediately, all on-campus and off-campus gatherings will move to an electronic format through at least the end of March. We, the church, have the opportunity to do our part in slowing the spread of COVID-19 as much as possible, and we are committed to doing just that.

For parents with kids in our Children’s Ministry and Youth Ministry, we love our students! Our leaders will stay in touch with you with details on our exciting plans for them.

Our leaders understand that you may have needs, both physical and spiritual, during this season. If you need prayer for anything, please email us at office@efreedb.org, and our leaders will be sure to pray for you. If you are in need of any physical assistance, or if you’re available to offer physical assistance, please fill out this assistance form. We especially encourage those who are most vulnerable to the virus to reach out to us. We’re ready to help!

Dear EFree Family,

There is uncertainty and anxiety regarding CoronaVirus (COVID-19) in our community. We know that God is in control and in uncertain times, we rely on Him to give us hope and encouragement. 

“Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with my righteous right hand” (Isaiah 41:10). 

Would you take a moment right now to pray for those affected by this illness? Please pray for those whose lives have been impacted and for those who are working around the clock to minimize the impact of the virus. Thank you.

After much prayer and consideration, and guided by the recommendation of our state government and L.A. County Department of Public Health, we are canceling all on-campus ministry gatherings for this Sunday, March 15. We do invite you to listen to this Sunday’s message, which will be available online starting at 9AM on Sunday morning. This is a great way to gather with loved ones to hear God’s Word!

We will make decisions about future gatherings on a weekly basis. Please check back here regularly for the latest news.

Our leaders are committed to serving you. We are excited to find creative ways to connect with you and minister to your needs during this time. We encourage you to connect with one another in creative ways as well. We have so many opportunities to bless one another in this day and age!

We hope you will continue to pray for and support the ministries of our church during these uncertain times. You can give online conveniently and securely by going to efreedb.org/giveonline. You can also mail your offering to the church at 3255 S Diamond Bar Blvd, Diamond Bar, CA 91765 or drop it off during the week.

Thank you,
