In lieu of a Thanksgiving Eve service, this year we are promoting
“A Season of Giving”. We as a church desire to coordinate all of our giving efforts to promote a spirit of gratefulness and blessing in our congregation and in our community.
Our goal is to challenge you give generously and to seek out opportunities to share the gospel message with those you reach out to this season. By doing so, we will be able to share stories and celebrate the lives changed through the generosity of our church.
EFCCL aspires to be a blessing to the needy, unemployed, and spiritually lost friends and family members of our church, as well as families in need from Hannah Beardsley Middle School, our Benevolent ministry, the military, and children all around the world.
Stay tuned for more information about each of the outreach opportunities
we are supporting during “A Season of Giving”.

Christmas Cards for the Evangel Children’s Home in Hong Kong
The Evangel Children’s Home was established in Hong Kong in 1956 by Ruth Sundquist, who was a long-standing member of EFCCL. Its original goal was to provide a caring and loving Christian home for orphans and later expanded to include non-orphans. The demand for such services increased over the years and living quarters for children were established in 1961.
With the love of our Lord Jesus, Evangel strives to care for and teach children from broken homes, provide houses for them, encourage them to grow with the Lord’s guidance and love to become healthy individuals, and educate them to take their place as useful citizens in the communities. Share the love of Christ with a child at the Evangel Children’s Home by sending them a Christmas Card this year!
Children’s names will be available at a booth in the North Lobby starting November 11.
Sign up to send a card, or two!
Heres how it works: You provide $5 inside a Christmas card and $1 to cover postage, and we send all the cards to Hong Kong. ALL CARDS ARE DUE BACK TO CHURCH BY SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 25!
