Healthy, growing and vitally contributing adults make a difference in their homes, workplaces and communities.
To that end, we offer a number of resources including parenting seminars, marriage enrichment classes, support groups and camps and conferences to encourage couples and families. For additional information, please contact our church office, 714-529-5544.
We all need a place where everybody knows our name. We were designed for relationship and we want everyone at EvFree to find the place where they can be known. Small Life Groups (12–15 people) meet in homes during the week. Sunday Communities are caring communities of 40–120 people who meet Sunday mornings to strengthen and challenge one another to reflect the character of and participate in the mission of Jesus. See when and where each group meets here.
We want to to develop, empower and release young adults as kingdom people and kingdom communities into missional engagement in their spheres of influence. We do this by helping our young adults follow Jesus as a disciple, connect as a family, and go as a missionary.
For more information on how we do this and ways to get involved, please contact Ryan Lunde.
Young married couples through families with children up to 6th grade. We desire to equip and encourage parents to raise godly children in the context of a family-friendly church. This is carried out through fellowship groups, special events and pastoral ministry.
There are six different Sunday Communities at our church and one home fellowship that meets on a weeknight, all geared to Young Families. These groups provide the encouragement and spiritual support that is vital for Christian parents to personally grow in their own walk with Christ as well as receive resources for their marriage and raising their kids.
If you’d like to learn more or get involved in Young Families, please contact Cassie Koepf.
Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. I Corinthians 16:13
The apostle Paul’s exhortation is every bit as relevant to 21st century followers of Christ as it was to those walking with him in the tough territory of Corinth. In every age God has called men to the great adventure—and resulting battle—of their lives as they follow Him. Our aim is to invite men into the adventure of following Christ, and to equip them to live out I Corinthians 16:13.
