We strongly believe God wants to use Evergreen to reach our local community and even the world. We call this area of focus "Growing Wider in Influence". Here are a few of the ways we regularly reach out:
Community Events We regularly organize and sponsor community events such as our summer Club at Colonial Village, Vacation Bible School, Family Fun Day, and 4th of July events in the Summer. We use these opportunities to get to know our neighbors and to invite our local community to experience God's love and truths.
Mission Trips Every other year or so, Evergreen sends a team of adults and teens on a short term mission trip in Honduras with a sister church in Choluteca. Many of our trips directly support Casa Hogar or Great Commission Latin America missions, though recently one couple spend two weeks supporting a Great Commission team in Nepal
Faith In Action At Evergreen, we believe in actively reaching out to and serving our local community. We don't want to just "go to church". We want to "be the church"! This past summer, we went weekly into a nearby neighborhood and played with the kids and shared the gospel.
Bread patrol Evergreen members periodically go out into the community and deliver gifts of bread to families that are new to our area. We want them to know we care about them, that we'd like to pray for them, and that we would love for them to come visit us.
