Yearly Meeting 2018

If you were unable to attend, all of the Yearly Meeting sessions (except the concert) are available at www.efcer.org/ym18.

We would love to hear about your experience at YM. Please take a few minutes to complete a survey here to help us plan for next year.

If you have pictures or stories to share, please send them to Julia McDonald at jmcdonald@efcer.org.
The Evangelical Friends Church of Louisville, KY is a congregation of refugees from Central East Africa. Please pray that God's Spirit will be poured out in full measure at their spiritual renewal conference August 10-12. (Acts 2:17-18)

 Romania/Hungary Youth Camp - Pray for God's continued work as youth from Romania (with Voicu and Ana Marian) and Hungary (with Tony and Agi Frei) gathered this past week in the name of Jesus. Long-standing animosity runs deep between these two countries. Pray that the unity demonstrated at the camp will bear testimony of the power of the love of Christ that breaks down the walls of prejudice, hatred and resentment.
(Eph. 4:3)
