Easter Offering 2020
EFM’s 2020 Easter Offering information is available here . This year's materials tell the story of Evangelical Friends’ missionary-sending efforts over the last 133 years. They are designed to be used in Sunday school classes, small groups, or even individual use.
 
Any monies sent to the EFM Easter Offering from EFC-ER churches and individuals will help support our works in Haiti, Hungary, Romania, India, and Thailand. Be sure to include the name of your church along with your gift so that it can be directed specifically toward these EFC-ER fields. May this offering not only inspire you, but also give clarity about the role the Lord of the harvest wants you to have in this still-unfolding story of Evangelical Friends and the Great Commission. LET’S GO TOGETHER TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH!
Please pray for Ben and Charity Kibbe and their coworkers in Thailand as they continue the process of Discipling for Development (D4D) in the villages of Ja Taw and Pa Mu. The goal of D4D is to help people practice whole-life discipleship, address poverty alleviation, and work with communities to experience God’s restoration in all areas of life. The Kibbes are being coached in D4D by David Thomas of EFM.

The group met together for Pastors Conference on Monday night and Tuesday morning for updates, connection, and worship. Brenda Walsh shared, "It was a great conference! Fantastic speakers!" Bruce Bell said, "This conference was an amazing mixture of teaching, worship, and fellowship with our pastors and spouses. My wife and I both left revived and refreshed in our passion and love for the Lord!"

Quote for the Week

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near." - Hebrews 10:22-24 (ESV)
