The dictionary definition of mission is as follows:
The vocation or calling of a religious organization, especially a Christian one, to go out into the world and spread its faith.
Jesus tells us in Mathew 5:16: In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”  At ELRAC we take these words seriously! It is our mission to let other people see Christ in us so that they may be drawn to Him. 
ELRAC supports missionaries through faith promise donations to the Great Commission Fund. This fund has been designated and is managed through the home office of the Christian & Missionary Alliance in order  to support missionaries domestically and globally. We are excited to hear from missionaries about what God is doing around the world. We have a visit once or twice each year when missionaries are home from assignment.

We also support several local missions to help people in our own backyard. We support the local chapter of Gideons International, (https://www2.gideons.org/about) as well as Women’s Care Center of Erie County (http://www.wccerie.org) and the Erie City Mission https://www.eriecitymission.org). Our main goal as a missions committee is to lead the charge in demonstrating Christ and His love for all.
