Missions

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

Multiply ME

Edmond's First Baptist Church (EFBC) is a "Family of Faith Passionately Connecting to His Mission"and that mission takes us down the street across the country and around the world. 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.

If you or your Connection Group (Sunday School) would like info about how you can be involved in one of these projects, complete the online form at MULTIPLY ME or contact Billy Fuller, 405-473-2836, EMAIL BILLY.

NYC Mission Trip

July 2016
Thank you for your prayers for NYC! An EFBC mission team just returned from a week long project in Queens, New York. What a privilege it is to work with Iglesia Bautista Canaan year after year, a church that is impacting a community and planting churches here God is opening doors. This year we served as a VBS team that reached into their community and maxed out their attendance. God did some great things last week and we are grateful for the experience. Praise God for the countless lives touched by the Gospel and the six young girls who committed their lives to Christ!

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!

You can schedule with the missions office other needs that your group has (Van usage, supplies not provided by your connection group, and Date of the project).
