Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of McCook Evangelical Free Church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. MEFC members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as washing the church van, to folding the church bulletins.


Mission Outreach

McCook Evangelical Free Church is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom around the world. We are active in sending missionaries and supporting these missionaries with our money and with our prayers. Each year, a short term missions team from our church travels to one of these countries to assist our missionaries in practical projects and evangelistic outreach. We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own community.


Music & Drama

God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music and drama ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Still others get involved in drama. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of MEFC, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.


Ushers

The usher team at McCook Evangelical Free Church fills an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, guiding traffic, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The usher team is a servant-hearted group of men whose ministry is integral to church life.


Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of McCook Evangelical Free Church. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. All of our weekly sermons are uploaded to our website in audio formats. We also maintain an active Facebook page for additional church communication.


Marriage Mentoring

Marriages can be difficult to maintain. Misunderstanding, confusion, resentment, and anger can flare up in any marriage. Several couples at MEFC serve other families as marriage mentors. Their role in listening, understanding, helping, and encouraging struggling couples has, by God’s grace, saved marriages, and repaired relationships. Couples have found fresh hope and new joy in a warm and fulfilling relationship with their spouse.


Prayer Warriors

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. McCook Evangelical Free Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Sunday, during the morning services, a team of volunteers prays for the ministry of the Word. Throughout the week, volunteers pray for their pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs.


Children’s Church

In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, MEFC holds a children’s church service in conjunction with the Late Service. This special time gives kids ages 3 years through Kindergarten more opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Our friendly children’s church volunteers have an endless stream of creativity–ranging from puppet shows, to games, to object lessons.
