EFCC Sunday

EFCC Sunday 2023

Dear EFCC Family!

As we settle into the fall routines and welcome the cooler temperatures, we would invite you to join us in celebrating EFCC Sunday. This is a time where we take a moment to reflect and thank God for the associate of churches and believers we are apart of. It’s also a time to reflect on the work God has done nationally and internationally. Below you will find materials we’ve put together to help share what is happening with the EFCC as whole. We also invite you to take this time to celebrate with your congregation the things that God is doing locally, and the places He is leading you.

When? We are asking churches to pick a Sunday between now and the end of November to have an EFCC Sunday celebration.

What Do We Need? We ask that you use the materials we have prepared below as part of your EFCC Sunday celebration. Download and share the video. Print and share the bulletin insert. Take a time to reflect on what you are sharing from your local churches journey.

What are we sharing? The materials provided share the exciting things that we are doing together and events that are coming up that we hope you will join us for.  These include:

The Benevolence Fund – it was started just before the impacts of COVID-19 started being felt all over the world. This fund has been used to assist people suffering from:

    • Desperate poverty
    • COVID-19
    • The war in Ukraine
    • And now, forest fires in Canada

God is transforming lives! To follow where God is leading, we’re recruiting a new generation of leaders, pastors, and missionaries. We have a partnership with Prairie College offering bursaries to qualified students. Last year, we had our first participant. This year we are up to six!

We’re extending this partnership to Serve24, a 2-year (i.e. 24-month) apprenticeship pairing academic instruction from Prairie College and hands-on, practical experience with our missionaries.

The development of our EFCC Leadership (formerly Lay Leader) Training module and how that is growing.
