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.

What is KIDS Kupboard? Kid’s Kupboard is a ministry designed to ensure that at risk children from a local elementary school don’t go hungry during extended school breaks such as Fall Break, Thanksgiving, Christmas Break, Spring Break, etc. Foods listed may be dropped off in designated boxes in the children’s wing on the first floor.  One near the elevator and one near the outside entrance. Volunteers pack grocery sacks full of fruit and ready-to-eat nutritious food items to be provided to families selected by the school social worker.

Fall 2016 India Mission Trip

EFBC’s vision to plant churches and be relentless on declaring the Gospel to the ends of the earth sent a team of five halfway across the world to Demapur, India. India is a country of billions on a land mass about a third the size of the USA. They are filled with new languages, exotic foods, and ancient religions. Every part of the adventure the EFBC team experienced was new and life changing.

We witnessed how God is using the simple things to make the biggest differences for the cause of Christ in a land that has been dark and lost for most of its history. Our team taught Vacation Bible School to 300 kids who were more than eager to learn about who Jesus is and what He has done specifically for them. We traveled to house churches in villages far off the roads from anything modern where families are learning how to share Christ with their neighbors and friends. These churches are so much like the first church, eager to learn about God’s plan and willing to sacrifice and share whatever they have for the cause of Christ in their community. The final purpose of the mission trip was to train churches to send out, multiply, and minister to new leaders, who will become house church pastors, disciplers, and baptize to those that receive God’s word.

EFBC's team is astonished by God’s love on the front lines in places like India. We are praying and seeking His guidance on how we should go forward and serve in the future. We are excited to say that God is good in all things and He makes our paths straight. Join us in prayer as we learn God’s plan for EFBC Missions and how we can go forward with serving Him in places like India.
