Bring Comfort & Joy to those who need it most!

In this COVID-Christmas season, where so many are suffering more than usual, we have a unique opportunity as Christ’s body to demonstrate his love and to share the joy of giving with others!

Every gift matters!
Every prayer makes a difference!
Every person getting involved multiplies our impact!

How to get involved:

1. ASK God to direct your steps.
2. GATHER your family and friends.
3. DISCUSS the list of giving opportunities and outreach partners.
4. DECIDE what you will give and follow instructions for each gift.
5. PRAY for those receiving your gift and the partners serving them.

Our gift drive partners include:

Foster Care Support Ministry

Bring JOY to a child in foster care this Christmas! Join the annual EFCC Gift Drive to tangibly show love to one of the 2,500 children living in foster homes, treatment centers, and group homes. These children have lost so much — your gift will show them that they are not alone.

EFCC Junior High Ministry

Partner with the Junior High Ministry as they continue to work with Mt. Horeb Baptist Church to reach children in Mexico! It is very important to only include new items in order to show respect and bless these children who may not get any other Christmas gifts. We welcome the donation of items such as jackets, sweaters, and blankets to take with us to Mexico. For more information, CLICK HERE for the instructions flyer.

Alternatives Medical Clinic

Women and men who make life-affirming choices often face very difficult life circumstances just as their new child is born. Your gift will encourage and support them in the process of protecting life and bringing up a child. For more information, visit the Alternative Medical Clinic web site.

Solutions for Change

Our outreach partner, Solutions for Change operates a comprehensive residential program for people who have become homeless and are working hard to get back on their feet. By providing a gift or gift card you can ensure that these families will be able to give a gift to their children this Christmas.

Escondido Police Department

Every December, the Escondido Police Department hosts a special Christmas Party for kids and teenagers in the community who have been victims of abuse, neglect, or violent crimes. Your gift will help make Christmas a bit brighter for the children in our community who are living in very difficult circumstances. For more details please visit their web site.

Safe Families for Children

Safe Families for Children helps parents facing domestic abuse, homelessness, and unemployment by providing a safe, temporary host family for their child while they address the crises in their life. Your gift will provide encouragement to the biological family in crisis.
