Outreach

OUTREACH

The mission of the Outreach Committee at EFC Newport is two-fold: first, to carry forth the Word to those that may not know Jesus usually referred to as “The Great Commission” (Matthew 28:16-20) and second, to conduct acts that mirror the acts of Jesus. This includes service wherever the need exists.

  • Our Outreach program has three distinct areas of activity. They are:
    • Local Evangelism and Church Growth
    • Missions
    • Service Programs
  • We have numerous Outreach programs underway now.  Some are complex and require the participation of the entire church while some are suitable for some groups or individuals just wanting to make a difference.
  • Operation Christmas Child – EFC Newport is one of 5,000 locations nationwide that serves as a drop-off site for Operation Christmas Child. This year the dates are Nov. 18–25, 2019, with drop-off times to be released this fall. At EFC, our volunteers receive and pray over each of the boxes that will be delivered to children in need around the world.
  • Hospitality – Serving within the Church for coffee hours, small gatherings and special events.
  • Soup Kitchen
    • Meets once a month at First Presbyterian Church in downtown Newport
    • Feeds on average 50 men, women and children
    • Volunteers needed for cooking, serving, cleanup
