Our gathered worship begins each Sunday at 9:30!
EFCito Summer Schedule
Summer EFCito (our version of children's church) will have it's LAST SESSION this Sunday, August 31st. Our regular EFCito will begin again soon, so keep your eyes and ears open for more information.
EFC Ministry Fair
After our time of gathered worship on Sunday, September 21st, we will host a ministry fair of the ministries at EFC and closely associated with us. We would love to have you come downstairs and see how you can get plugged in with any of the many opportunities that will be represented!
EFC Member Covenant
The EFC Elders continue to polish a simple yet increasingly important tool for people who want to explore what it really means to be part of this local church. The “tool” is The EFC Member Covenant.
Each September we invite (and challenge) any and every individual, from high school age up, to take a copy of it, read it, think about and pray over it and decide if you are at a place in your journey where you would like to commit to it for the coming year.
Circle October 12 on our calendar as a Sunday when we will go from gathered worship to an opportunity to hear what we call “The ABC’s of EFC” – along with some specific things that we must do to comply with the government.
Prison Ministry Prayer Needs
"Remember those in prison, as if you were there yourself..."
(Hebrews 13:3, NLT)
The ladies ministering ("Alma Libre") in the El Inca prison continue to turn to people from three of their "anchor" churches here in Quito with a passionate plea for prayer. They tell of rapidly increasing tension in the extremely overcrowded prison – with emotions running very high in the face of changing restrictions and uncertainty heading toward the pending mass transfer to a new prison complex near Latacunga.
Please pray for the prisoners, the guards, and all those who are ministering to them.
Young Adult Bible Study
The Young Adults Bible Study is starting up again on Thursday evenings, 7-9pm in the EFC classrooms. We are continuing our chronological study through the Bible. Contact Jeremy McMillan (email@example.com) for more information.
You can give financially to the ministry of EFC through PayPal on our website. Giving through PayPal helps us navigate the financial needs we have in the United States, and it allows your giving to be tax-deductible in the U.S.
