EFCI Greetings and Church Updates

Brothers and sisters,

Grace and peace to you in Jesus’ name.

As of March 17, we have been informed by the the CA Governor Gavin Newsom and the CA Health Department that starting immediately, all public and private gatherings are completely banned. In order to fully comply, we have to temporarily shut down our church building until further notice. Due to the fact that our AV team cannot enter the church, our pastors cannot record for our online streaming on stage.  Therefore we cannot have the Youtube Live Stream as originally planned. However, we will look for more flexible and simplified ways of online meeting to replace the traditional Sunday pulpit. Therefore, please follow the guidelines below:

1. Effective immediately, all gatherings within the church must stop. You cannot enter the church building without permission.

2. Please take good care of yourselves, keep your soul, body and mind healthy. Avoid going outside unless absolutely necessary. Use social media such as Line, Facebook, Zoom.. to keep in contact with one another and care for each other. And watch for the latest updates from church.

3. In these difficult times, please continue to pray for the leaders of our country and also the hardworking medical professionals. Let’s help one another in practical ways, especially those around us with special needs who might be neglected.

We trust that God will lead us in this difficult hour. That God will use all of this to help us get closer to Him, to trust in Him and bring us through these unprecedented times. Thank you for your cooperation. If you have any suggestions or needs please contact our pastors or church secretary at 949-261-8007.

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.

I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”( Isaiah 41:10)
