Helping Others Through Benevolence
A key ministry to our church family and community is helping those in financial need. Each year, we assist many individuals and families by providing rent payments, gas cards, groceries, and other forms of assistance. Each need is vetted in a thorough process by our deacons. You can help support this ministry by contributing online at www.jefc.org or by writing "benevolence" on a check made out to JEFC. Thank you for helping those in need!
