Portsmouth First Friends Church hosted "Servolution Sunday" on Sunday, February 23. Fifty-four people (pictured right) participated in a "revolution of serving" (Mark 10:45). As part of the Sunday morning service, the group went out to the community to serve God and His people.
We pray for our EFC-ER pastors and spouses as they travel to Orlando, FL next week for Pastors Conference at Exponential 2020. Join us in praying that they would be equipped and encouraged as they learn to pursue the Great Collaboration and multiply disciples together (John 17:22-23).
EFC-ER pastors and spouses will meet together on Monday, March 2 (6:00-9:00pm) and Tuesday, March 3 (9:00-11:00am) in Room 346 in Faith Hall at First Baptist Orlando .

A light, catered meal will be provided from 6:00-7:00pm on Monday night. The evening will include worship and updates from the EFC-ER Ministry Directors. Tuesday morning will feature worship and an overview and helpful tips from Mike Dennis (Riverbend EFC). EFC-ER pastors and spouses will join the Exponential  schedule  on Tuesday after our session together. 

If you purchased your ticket through Exponential, please RSVP here to let us know you are coming so we can plan accordingly.
Please pray for the members of Evangelical Friends Church - India. This new, voluntary partnership was formed last week by several EFC-ER and EFM missionaries (pictured left) to promote greater missional cooperation among the various EFC ministries throughout India. They plan to gather together every other year for worship, encouragement, and fellowship.

Please continue to pray for Dave Aufrance as his surgery has been delayed again due to COVID-19. We do not have a new date at this time.
