OUR COMMUNITY




We're passionate about taking God's good news, in word and deed, to those desperate for hope in our community because His written word, the Bible, compels us to.  


  • GOOD NEWS CLUB

    EAC sponsors a Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) Good News Club after-school program at Edgewater Public Elementary one afternoon a week.  Trained teachers tell the children about Jesus and disciple them in the Word through Bible lessons, songs, Scripture memorization, and other fun activities.

  • EVERY CHILD INITIATIVE

    Through Every Child Initiative, foster families are identified and matched with volunteers who provide support and care to foster parents as well as foster children.  These support services include babysitting, tutoring, transport, meals, lawn work, etc.  By providing emotional and physical support for foster families and foster children, we're able to sustain those called to foster care and provide consistent gospel exposure for vulnerable children in our community.

  • PROJECT: ACTS 29

    One Sunday in November, we dismiss early and put our love into action by going to the Edgewater Winn-Dixie to buy groceries for local food pantries and baby items for Grace House Pregnancy Center.  This year, 347 local families were blessed with a holiday turkey and total purchases of over $30,000 stocked our community food pantries and Grace House Pregnancy Center.

  • RECOVERY CHURCH OAK HILL

    We're a fellowship of people belonging to the Recovery Church Movement (RCM) which reaches and trains those in early recovery to grow in their faith and recovery.  Join us for a service in Oak Hill at 10:00 am on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month.

  • FOOD PACKAGING

    We partner with Kids Against Hunger to prepare and package meals on a Sunday morning every spring for the world's hungry.  Join us on Wednesday, May 15, this year for a unique experience!

  • HOT MEAL PROGRAM

    The third Friday of every month, EAC volunteers prepare and serve a free hot lunch at First United Methodist Church of New Smyrna Beach for those in need.  We also provide a free hot supper one Sunday evening a month at Edgewater United Methodist Church.

  • COMMUNITY THANKSGIVING DAY DINNER

    Including EAC, a large coalition of local churches and over 200 volunteers prepare and serve a free Thanksgiving Day meal with all the trimmings for 500-700 guests at First United Methodist Church of New Smyrna Beach.

  • "COVERINGS OF LOVE" QUILTING MINISTRY

    Every Thursday, ladies gather to create beautiful quilts and share food, fellowship, and prayer.  The cancer patients who receive these quilts are wrapped in the warmth of Christ's love.

  • ROOM AT THE INN

    On nights when the temperature is forecast to drop below 40 degrees, we partner with area churches to provide the homeless with dinner, a safe and warm shelter, and breakfast the next morning.

"For I was hungry and you gave Me food, I was thirsty and you gave Me drink, I was a stranger and you welcome Me, I was naked and you gave Me clothing.  I was sick, and you cared for Me.  I was in prison and you visited me.  Then these righteous ones will reply, 'Lord, when did we ever see You hungry and feed You?  Or thirsty and give You something to drink?  Or a stranger and show You hospitality?  Or naked and give You clothing?  When did we ever see You sick or in prison and visit You?'  And the King will answer them, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these My brothers, you did it to Me."


Matthew 25:35-40
