Our local Ministerial Association collectively has a food pantry and a transient fund. If you would like to donate food, there is a labeled cabinet in the foyer. It is there year around. If you would like to give financially, then make a check out to the E-Free Church and note that it is for the Food Pantry or Transient Fund. Also, your Red & White and H&R bonus points can go to the Food Pantry.


Tis the Season!

As a church we support many missions and missionaries from local to half way around the world.  

To help build and maintain these relationships we encourage connection with each of these missions.  One way to do this is through showing our appreciation of their work and sacrifices during the Christmas season. 

We encourage those who are so led to offer Christmas cards and financial gifts to these missions.  For the next few weeks there will be a decorated box in the fellowship area to accept these gifts.  You can designate financial gifts to a particular Mission or all undesignated gifts will be distributed equally to the missions supported by our church.

Thank you, Mission Team
