The mission of EFCC's FACES Foster Care and Adoption Support Ministry is to minister to orphans and waiting children by being a resource to adoptive and foster families. In addition, FACES is a source of help and support to anyone interested in the cause of the fatherless, through support, prayer, encouragement, and fellowship among these individuals.

FACES also provides opportunities to meet the needs of orphans and foster kids locally and around the world.

Service Project Opportunity for Christmas

Each year, FACES the Adoption and Foster Care Ministry of EFCC hosts a gift drive for vulnerable children. We have committed to showing Christ's love by gifting nearly 400 children with Christmas presents this year, but we need your help!  The gift drive will be presented to the entire EFCC congregation in the next few weeks. We need a "behind-the-scenes" team willing to help make this happen.

Over several weekends in November and December, we will be distributing the ornaments outside the services on Saturday nights and Sunday mornings. We're seeking volunteers to "man the tables" and assist with this task. We need several people for each time slot to give simple instructions, hand out the ornaments, and collect gifts as they come back in. CLICK HERE to sign up to help now.

On Sunday, December 2, there will be a sorting party after the 11 a.m. service at EFCC. This year, gifts are going to children in foster care, teens served through Solutions for Change, the San Diego Police Department outreach division, and Alternatives Medical Center. We will need help organizing gifts, wrapping, and possibly doing some last minute shopping!  If you would like to help in this way, please email Anna.
