In February 2021, in response to the financial strains exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, East Fairview Church donated $3,000 to each of the following five organizations that present the good news of Jesus Christ while serving human needs:
- Align Life Ministries for baby care supplies
- The Bowery Mission in New York City for food, clothing, and shelter
- Water Street Mission in Lancaster for food, clothing, and shelter
- Nigeria Crisis Fund for material and spiritual relief to persecuted Christians
- Love INC of Lancaster County to respond to individual and family needs
In May 2021, the church sent $1,000 to Barnabas Aid to assist persecuted Christians around the world.
In July 2021, the church offered prayers and financial support to two members as they participated in a mission trip to Ghana, Africa.
In September 2021, the church staffed the milkshake stand at the Brethren Disaster Relief Auction at the Lebanon Expo Center. All the proceeds were donated to the auction.
In December 2021, in response to an outbreak of severe tornados in Kentucky and surrounding states, the church collected over $5,000 for the Brethren Disaster Ministries/Children’s Disaster Services to aid in recovery efforts.
Evangelism and Servant Ministries Team
The Evangelism and Servant Ministry (ESM) team connects the congregation with the community, promotes opportunities for witnessing through service and missions work, and we have a little fun doing it along the way. We help promote the work of Christ-based organizations such as Bible2School, COBYS Family Services, Love INC, Water Street Mission, and the Manheim Central Food Pantry. We also encourage members to participate in short-term mission trips. We sell milk shakes at the Brethren Disaster Relief Auction at the Lebanon Fairgrounds each September. We also participate in the Manheim Project to help local residents with house/yard work.
We simply try to shine the light of Christ on the congregation and the community through actions.
