Active Military & Veterans, We Salute You!

Veterans Helping Veterans

Americans owe a great debt to all our Veterans who are Active, Reserve, Retired, National Guard & Discharged. God has blessed us with a great and free land preserved by the sacrifice of so many since the beginning of our nation. EFCC has an active ministry group for Active Military & Veterans which honors God by serving Active Military & Veterans through prayer, resource, support and fellowship.

We invite all Active Military &Veterans to connect with our group, as we will continue to Honor God as we seek to be followers of Jesus as American Veterans! Learn more about our ministry below.
