Ministries

missions

For over thirty years now, Erastus has taken ten per-cent of its offerings and designated the funds for a number of different organizations. Sixty per-cent of the tenth goes into our "Love Fund" account, which is used for hardship cases that may come to our attention within the surrounding community. The other forty per-cent of the tenth goes to our "Mission Fund" to support various mission organizations.

Today, Erastus Christian Church is happy to be able to share our blessings with:

  • Freedom Church of God Food Closet. Erastus Christian, Homer Baptist, Mt. Zion Baptist, and Providence Baptist all combine their efforts to work with Freedom Church of God's food pantry to serve the different surrounding counties.
