EFCA Statement of Faith

We are an association and fellowship of autonomous and interdependent churches united around the same Statement of Faith.

Help Greenfield, IA

On May 22, a tornado ripped through the small town of Greenfield, IA and destroyed most of the town. Thank you for your prayers for Pastor Mike and the Cornerstone Fellowship family. The church is partnered with ReachGlobal Crisis Response to coordinate the ongoing recovery efforts.  Cornerstone wants to be a blessing and serve their community with care and compassion for the long term, but they need our help. They have sent ways to get involved- click the link below to learn more.

Help Spencer, IA

On Saturday June 22, extreme rainfall led to the Little Sioux River in Spencer, IA overflowing its banks and destroying hundreds of homes and businesses. In the immediate aftermath of the flooding, CrossWinds Church served as one of the two community shelter locations. CrossWinds Church is actively helping with clean up and recovery in the city and has been in contact with ReachGlobal Crisis Response.

CrossWinds has received a number of questions concerning ways that other churches can help. Here are a number of ways to do so:

1. Pray for the leadership of CrossWinds Church as they seek wisdom in how to care for the hurting and displaced in their community.

2. If your church would like to aid in the clean up efforts, please contact information@crosswinds.tv.

3. If you are interested in giving to the clean up efforts, you can contribute to the CrossWinds flood recovery fund here (link: https://crosswindsefca.churchcenter.com/giving/to/flood-recovery).

Thank you for keeping the community of Spencer in your prayers during this challenging time.
