As 2020 is coming to a close, we are supporting the Richmond Christmas Fund * by running a toy drive to bless the needy families at Richmond. Thank you KEC brothers and sisters of for your generosity! In just two and a half weeks, we collected a total of 324 toys and 24 gift cards for the Christmas Toy Drive! All the donated toys and gift cards have been safely delivered to the Richmond Christmas Fund today! Let's continue to pray that every toy donated will become a blessing to families and children in need in our community!
* In 2020, Richmond Christmas Fund has handed out 6,000 toys to approximately 1,000 Richmond families. The total number of beneficiaries is 2,864 people, including 849 children, 318 youth, and 347 seniors.
Union Gospel Mission (UGM) from downtown eastside has produced a short video to thank KEC brothers and sisters for our support in the past year!
Under the epidemic, the number of people in need of help in the city is increasing. UGM especially encourages KEC brothers and sisters to support the Christmas Hampers Project through online donations, and bless 300+ families and 150 elderly people by the end of the year.

When the world is in darkness, do Christians focus on self-preservation? Or do we see it as an opportunity to become the light of the world? Will we step up to share God's goodness and generosity to many people in need?
Reaching Out is more than just another sermon series, but a generosity campaign for the needy in the community.
