EDWARDS ROAD STREET REPAIR

According to Greenville County, the 6-foot-wide pipe under Edwards Road near Richbourg Road was undermined by the recent storm and has failed. It was scheduled for repair next year but has now been bumped up to expedited status. They currently anticipate the road will be closed for several weeks for repair, so please use the Highway 29/Arundel Road/Botany Road/Edwards Road (near the Dunkin' Donuts intersection) or the Howell Road/Imperial Drive/Botany Road/Rollingbridge Drive (near Camperdown Academy) accesses.

MORE KAIROS PRISON MINISTRY INFO

KAIROS Prison Ministry is an ecumenical Christian ministry designed for use in state and federal men's and women's correctional institutions in the United States and throughout the world.

The purpose of KAIROS is to establish a strong Christian community among the residents of correctional institutions. This is done by the presentation of a 3-day short course in Christianity. It is presented by an interdenominational team of about 55 persons for a group of 42 residents. The chaplain carefully selects the inmates from the prison population. The ideal recruits are those residents who are presently the leaders in the institution. There, they become Christ's agents for change in their environment that ultimately can bring about change in the attitude and quality of life for the entire institution.

The primary goal of the KAIROS ministry is to teach those who attend the weekend to become part of a share and prayer group. This allows them to share their lives on deep spiritual level and pray for one-another.

The South Carolina KAIROS website gives much more information, and Ed Chandler will be glad to talk to you further about how you can be involved. Please contact Ed at (864) 244-9153. You can also see a recent Post and Courier article on how KAIROS makes such a difference in men's lives!

ERBC SECURITY MEASURES

For the safety of our Weekday children and our Church Staff, our Receptionist will not be allowing anyone in the building that she does not recognize. She will speak to those outside the door by intercom before letting them into the building. We do not want to offend anyone, but we are implementing these measures to offset any possible dangerous scenarios. Thank you for your understanding!

 

INTERCESSORY PRAYER TEAM WEEKLY INSPIRATION

Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the Name that is above every name,
that at the Name of Jesus every knee should bow, in Heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Philippians 2:9-11

 


THE HEART GALLERY

The South Carolina Heart Gallery is a photo exhibit displayed in the main hallway that features adoptable children from the SC foster care system. Local photographers donate their time and services to photograph the waiting children. The Heart Gallery basically puts a face on the need by letting people see these children's faces in the photos.  The goal is to raise awareness of the need for adoptive families and to hopefully find homes for these kids by letting their personalities shine through the pictures.

 


SARCOMA SUPPORT GROUP

You're not alone! At our Sarcoma Support Group you'll find:

  • Help in forming a network
  • Face-to-face connections with others who know what you're going through
  • Hope and encouragement for your emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing while you fight for your physical wellness

The Sarcoma Support Group meets every fourth Monday in July, October and January at 7:00 p.m. in the Library. For more information you can contact Beth Lagrange by email or by phone at 864-254-0333, and you can access the Sarcoma Support Group webpage.
