In His Steps Shoe Ministry: 25 Years of Helping Children

Last school year, EFUMC provided about 265 pairs of NEW shoes to needy school children. In 2017-18, we were able to bless approximately 690 children!

 

Edinburg CISD helps us by identifying students in need. We partner with a local shoe store to provide $25 gift cards for students to purchase brand new shoes, sometimes the very first pair of new shoes a child has ever worn. Learn more about In His Steps here.

 

Walk in the footsteps of Jesus and help the needy children of our community by supporting the In His Steps ministry. Donate on-line using PayPal here. Or place your donation in the offering plate during worship. Be sure to designate your donation for In His Steps.
