The Erickson Family
David and Leann Erickson drove a U-Haul from Florida to California in 1997. After arriving they flipped through the Yellow Pages (do you remember those?) looking for a local Evangelical Free Church. They found a church home at CCCLH that greeted them warmly and a vibrant young couples group that welcomed them in. The reason they stayed was the church's commitment to Biblical preaching and sound doctrine.
For the past 19 years, CCCLH has been their church home. They now have four children ages 18 to 12. They have been involved in worship, nursery, moving ministry, Sunday school, youth group, and various men's and women's reading groups. David has also served as an elder. David and Leann currently teach Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade Sunday school. They love telling Bible stories to the little ones, praying the Lord's Prayer, singing the 66 books of the Bible and having fun with glue and markers.
Now their nest is starting to empty. Their oldest son Justin recently got a promotion and job transfer to Philadelphia. Instead of mom and dad, he now has a roommate, a new church and access to a local laundromat. They are praying for him. And it gives them new perspective on bringing up their other three children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. They count themselves blessed to be part of the church God is building here in Laguna Hills.
