LOCAL OUTREACH

Local Outreach

We are intentional about meeting the spiritual needs of our actual neighbors and people in our surrounding community. Following Jesus’ instructions, we provide food, clothing and resources to those with great needs; we also partner with a variety of organizations who serve the marginalized in our community.

Compassion Fund

EvFree Fullerton uses regular and one-time donations to help meet emergency needs of those in our church family and the marginalized in the community through local compassion-based ministries. For more information, write to missions@evfreefullerton.com.

Sunday Night Service

We all remember the days when churches had a Sunday Night Service, right? Well, it time to bring it back only this time there's a twist! Instead of gathering for more teaching and singing on Sunday nights, once a month, we're going to gather for worship of Christ through service to our city. Whether cleaning up a local neighborhood park, repainting a community center, offering free laundry services at a local laundromat, or helping widows fix up their homes, we're going to gather together to love our neighbors with tangible acts of service, followed by a dinner out somewhere fun together. Sunday Night Service is open to all ages, and promises to be a great time to put our faith in action as a family. For more information you can email Mitch Fierro.
