EVC partners with several local and global ministries to continue our efforts to Extend God's Kingdom. If you're interested in providing additional support to any of the ministries below, check our their website or contact our church offices.
Community Link is a local non-profit organization dedicated to fighting hunger and giving hope to needy families in and around the Saginaw area. Their mission relies on the help of volunteers and while there are opportunities to serve throughout the week, EVC has arranged to organize volunteers to serve at Community Link the second Saturday of each month from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm. When families come to pick up their groceries, we will be pulling the items from the shelves, bagging them and placing them in the vehicle for the families. It’s a simple but rewarding opportunity to serve in your local community. Community Link does require that all volunteers be 13 years of age or older and pre-registration is preferred to help them make sure that they have enough volunteers. The next opportunity to serve will be May 13th. For more information or to sign up to volunteer, please contact Ken Edwards at 214-544-5921.
We partner with Community Link Mission every year through financial support, volunteers and food drives. Through them, we help provide food and household items to thousands of families in our own community. Last year, the EVC family provided 200 backpacks filled with school supplies to families in need through the Community Link Back to School Fair.

Compassion International is a child-advocacy ministry that pairs compassionate people with those who are suffering from poverty. The ministry releases children from spiritual, economic, social, and physical poverty. The goal is for each child to become a responsible and fulfilled adult. Currently, the members of EVC sponsor over 100 children from a variety of countries and we look forward to continued growth of this ministry.

Since 2013, EVC has been providing financial support to Mercy Chefs to minister God’s comfort and love through high quality, hot meals and prayer for people who are impacted by natural disasters and other tragedies. Recently Mercy Chefs has been on the ground supporting those impacted by tornadoes in Richardson, TX and Moore, OK as well as several areas around the United States. Often when natural disasters hit EVC recommends sending donations directly to Mercy Chefs. For more information on Mercy Chefs' ministry visit www.mercychefs.com
