Frequently Asked Questions
Are EV Church services on, or meeting onsite?

Can we still meet in Growth Groups?
Growth Groups are currently not meeting as a formal, physical-face-to-face meeting, but are rather meeting together online. Now more than ever, we need to rely on the structures of Growth Group in regards to the relationships, fellowship and network they provide. We’ll continue to provide resources to facilitate supportive relationships going forward.
What about serving in ministry teams?
There are many people who are continuing to serve each other at EV. However, many ministries will be placed on hold for a time. If you are unsure or unable to serve in your regular ministry team, contact your team leader.
There are also many new opportunities to serve each other in many new roles. Contact us here if you have skills and capacity to serve the EV Church community at this time.
What if I need help, or care?
If you need assistance, care or help at this time, you can contact our care team firstname.lastname@example.org or here.
How can I still give to EV Church?
We encourage you to continue financially partnering in our ministry during this different season. The staff team is working just as hard to see us deepen our faith, and to take advantage of the new opportunities before us to reach our community with the gospel.
