Thank You: On behalf of the children, families, and community members blessed by last week’s Rodeo & Races event, we want to pass along a huge thank you to everyone who helped make this event special.  It takes a team to pull this event off, and we’re so grateful for your joyful service!  May the Lord bless and grow the Gospel seeds planted and watered by our church last Saturday! 
—Chris & Suzanne Anderson and Barry Termaat

The Big 3
#1) Membership Class
On Sunday, August 30th from 12:15pm to 3:15pm in the Fellowship Hall, we will have a class for those interested in church membership. We will explore our ministries and the doctrine of the Evangelical Free Church. If you want to sign up or have additional questions, please contact a pastor or Ellie in the church office at 338-2077.  We would love to have you there!
#2) Women’s Ministry Fall Bible Study
There are two opportunities for you to join us. 
  • Thursday mornings from 9:00 -11:00 AM starting September 10th.  We will be studying God of Creation: A Study of Genesis 1-11 by Jen Wilkin.  Cost is $17.  Note: In Person and Zoom Option available.  Childcare provided to age 5.
  • Tuesday Evenings at church from 7:00-8:30 PM.  Intro Night will be September 8th and then we will meet every other Tuesday evening starting September 15th for the study of Colossians He is Enough: Living in the Fullness of Jesus by Asheritah Ciuciu.  Cost is $10.
  • Registration deadline is September 1st for both.
#3) Pray For Me Campaign
This fall the FEFC Youth Ministry is beginning the Pray For Me campaign. The goal of Pray for Me is to match our 6th-12th grade students with multiple “Prayer Champions.” A “Prayer Champion” is an adult in the congregation who commits to pray for one student for an entire school year. Each Prayer Champion will be given the name of a student, specific prayer requests, and a Prayer Guide to use in praying daily for their student. This ministry works to tighten the web of intergenerational relationships in our church and equips adults to pass along a life of faith to the next generation.
Please contact Pastor Dan ( ) if you would like to be a Prayer Champion or if you are a parent and want to make sure your 6th-12th grade student is matched with Prayer Champions.
“Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.” (Rom. 12:10) We have many in our church family who are vulnerable to the novel coronavirus or cannot risk infection. If you are sick, please stay home and join our Sunday Morning Worship livestream. When you come to church, please wash your hands often, cover your cough, and maintain 6’ physical distance between families. We also encourage you to wear a mask anytime you cannot maintain 6’ physical distancing.
