Serving together to take the Gospel across the street and around the world.

Multiply ME

Here you will find updates on how EFBC Connects to His Mission. You will also find ways that you can join us in fulfilling that vision as well. EFBC is involved in projects all over the city.

Book Box WEB Banner 01 high

Take a Book at Oak Ridge Estates

Recently the leadership of the Oak Ridge Kids Club had an idea of building a Book Box. Here is how it works; “The Book Box” is placed in a public area in the Oak Ridge Estates Community, anyone may take a book out of “The Book Box” at anytime, keep the book as your own or share it with someone else. This is such an easy fun idea that helps develop community and encourages reading of all ages!

Homebound Ministry Valentine’s Emphasis

The 2016 Valentine’s Day emphasis for our homebound members was truly a group effort. The balloon bouquets were provided by the Homebound Ministry, Women on Mission made vases with paper flowers, Kathleen Wilkes brought homemade cookies wrapped in Valentines bags, handmade cards by the children of Parents Day Out, and custom made hand signed cards by the Goree Connection Group. These items are greatly appreciated by our homebound members and their families.

The Sewing Ministry appreciates all of the donations of fabric and notions. This has helped to accomplish our goal of supporting missions at home and elsewhere. For more information, contact Anita Smith, 405-330-1551, or follow the SEWING MINISTRY.

Friendship WEB Banner 01 high

Friendship International

Thank you for your prayers and financial support of Friendship International. We just completed the fall semester of the 39th year. This has been a record-breaking year in attendance, averaging about 103 international women each week. We have 36 countries represented, our most recent, the Ivory Coast. Each week the ladies met together for snacks and a devotion before dismissing to one of 16 classes that were offered this year. We also had several ladies become American citizens in the past year, which is always exciting for these ladies and their teachers who helped them prepare for their test.

We finished the semester with a Christmas party which included a devotion centered around the reason for Christ’s birth. A lady from South Korea also shared her story of becoming a believer in Christ while here in Edmond! With all that is taking place in the world we are blessed to have the privilege of sharing Christ’s love as the only true source of peace. For more info, follow FRIENDSHIP INTERNATIONAL.
