Adult Bible Communities (ABCs)
Jesus began a people movement that is centered around community. To facilitate the building of relationships at MEFC, we have life stage Adult Bible Communities--a place where you can, in a relaxed atmosphere, get acquainted with other believers, and learn applicable Bible truths together.
ABCs at Milaca Free Church are centered around equipping and training believers. We have a very strategic structure in place that includes four age groups taught by a rotation of seven teachers. Join us for a great time of learning on Sunday mornings after worship.
Cross Trainers - Singles and Young Couples, located in the south room off the gym
Body Builders - Married or Singles, with kids at home, located in The Shed
New Horizons - Empty Nesters, still employed, located in the gym
Encore - Retired or Semi-Retired, active and flexible schedules, located in the fellowship hall
MEFC Health Ministries
The mission of the Health Ministry at Milaca Evangelical Free Church is to promote health: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual within our church community. We do this because Jesus’ ministry was a healing ministry, and because Jesus sent His disciples to preach the Gospel and heal the sick (Mt 10: 7-8).
