Jesus loves you
Welcome to Edmonton Free Methodist Church
What is prayer? Prayer is our direct line with heaven.
Edmonton Free Methodist Church is committed to the safety and health of our congregation and community user groups. Currently, we have suspended our in-person Sunday gatherings and will have online services streamed live on our Facebook page on Sundays at 11:00 am. Click the bottom at the top of this page.
Life in Christ is as an unprecedented adventure, an exciting journey in which we get to know God our creator, understand our purpose in this world, and have free access to the Divine enablement that it takes to fulfill our God-given destiny. How can that not be exciting?
Our congregation at EFMC is a vibrant, multi-cultural group of bible-believing Christians from over twelve (12) countries around the world, and yes, we believe the Bible to be the Word of God from front cover to back cover. We love to sing, clap our hands in Praise & Worship, enjoy chatting and laughing, and possess an insatiable appetite for each other’s (international) cuisine.
My mission as pastor, is to round EFMC into a healthy, working and focused group of believers who have a heart for God, as manifested in our love for people; Christians who are confident in the fact that we are the salt of the earth and the light of the world, and that God has entrusted us with the responsibility of daily reflecting His Glory into a dark and otherwise hopeless world.
Generosity is very high on our list of priorities. One of my seminary lecturers once told me,
'you can give without loving, but you can't love without giving'.
We believe that generosity is not just something we do, it’s who we are. We presently sponsor some 13 children around the globe and are working on sponsoring even more as God increases us.
Welcome to the EFMC

Sunday - 11:00 am - Live-stream Worship Service - Pastor Patrick Lashley - Check our Facebook page at 11:00 am to join in. Last Sunday the church enjoyed an outdoor "drive-in" service in our parking lot. While it was inordinately windy, it was an uplifting time together, and so good to see everyone in person - albeit it from two metres away. Today Pastor Lashley began a mini-series on "The Faith of Rahab" (taken from Hebrews 11). Next Sunday he continues with the story of Rahab - with her being converted to Christianity. Please join us online to 'hear the rest of the story'.
Be sure to check the Facebook page for more exciting Sunday School lessons and activities - many thanks to Larissah Lashley for maintaining Sunday School during the pandemic.
