The Sunday School Department consists of seven classes from the ages of 2 to 18. We seek to teach and train children in the ways of the Lord. Our main desire is to educate children about the bible so that they are equipped with God's word. During the month of July, our department offers Vacation Bible School (VBS) for children within the church and is open to the community. They learn more about the word of God in a fun and friendly environment through activities and crafts.
Psalms 127:3... Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward
Friday night's are Children's Club at ERT! During the year, the children meet new friends, new teachers, and become familiar with God's word. Through Bible stories, games, crafts, learning activities, snacks, music and informal moments of worship and praise, children will learn of God's love and respond in thankfulness and love to Him.
Our theme verse: Psalms 119:11 - Thy word have I hid in mine heart that I might not sin against thee.
The vision of E.R.T. has always been presenting the Gospel to all nations. As a missionary church, we do our best to reach the lost, feed the hungry, clothe the naked and help the helpless-both at home and abroad.
In India, we have established an orphanage to house 50 children. Presently, we are supporting 36 orphans. We are also supporting 20 Pastors in India. We have also helped to establish a church in St. Lucia, and are supporting them on a monthly basis. From this branch they have established 4 other branches in St. Lucia, and one in Martinique. We are also supporting missionaries in East Africa, South Africa, Jamaica and Belize. We support Canadian missionaries with outreach in Northern Ontario, and as far away as Siberia
Ecclesiastes 12:1... Remember now thy creator in the days of thy youth.
We are a fun loving, knowledge-seeking, Jesus-serving group of young people. Our motto is "Educate through Fellowship and Love." EYM consists of three sub-groups: College & Career, Youth with a Mission, and Childrens Club. Friday nights are special because we meet at 7:30pm for teaching, encouragement, prayer and fellowship in an atmosphere where we can be ourselves.
1 Timothy 6:11...But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, Godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
One of the goals of our Men's Fellowship ministry is to encourage men to become better fathers, husbands and men in their homes. We strive for this ministry to be a place where men can come and share what is on their heart without reservations that may normally exist in a general forum. It is an atmosphere where we can assist and encourage each other with everyday things of this world and also the spiritual aspects.
The ERT Women's ministry is to reach and minister to women of all ages and culture in the church, in the community and wherever the Lord would lead them.
We do take the word of the Lord seriously - Titus 2:3&4 says "That the aged women be teachers of good things, and also teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, and to love their children. It is important that all women know Gods will and leading for their lives."
We always stress the importance of praying and ministering to the women who are sick and not able to attend the services. The women's ministry is committed to develop Godly relationships by sharing the word of God that will help them to stay strong in the Lord. We also emphasize the importance of reaching out to women in the community with needs. It is important for them to know that there are those who care for them spiritually and physically.
The ministry is to impact and affect all women that they will be awakened to the importance of being empowered by the word of God to cause them to carry out and accomplish God's plan and purpose in their lives.
