We've hired a new Pastor!

We're excited to announce that Rachel Siemens has begun her ministry with us.

Christmas Events

Sunday, December 18, 2:30pm: Christmas Program with refreshments to follow. Join us as our Sunday School children and youth, along with our choir, present a Christmas program. This will be followed by 'Faspa' (light meal) to which you are invited to bring a small plate of Christmas goodies to share. Please RSVP to the church office (office@edmontonfirst.mcab.ca, 780-436-3431) by December 13 so we can plan the food.

Wednesday, December 21, 7:00pm: Longest Night Service. Scripture, music, and quiet meditation to remember losses, acknowledge grief, and pray for light and hope. This service recognizes that for some the Christmas season may be a time of sadness rather than "tidings of good cheer".

Saturday, December 24, 7:00pm: Christmas Eve service.

Sunday, December 25, 10:45am: Christmas Day service.

Solar Panel Fundraiser

We are called to be stewards of the environment, and this includes reducing our greenhouse gas emissions. By purchasing a solar PV system, we can reduce the amount of emissions we release from our electricity consumption. This will reduce air pollution and improve air quality, slow the effects of climate change, and reduce our reliance on a diminishing supply of fossil fuels. Our fundraising goal for this project is $150,000. To date we have raised $72,403.



We are worshipping with a hybrid model that includes both in person and Zoom options.

If you wish to attend in person, the doors open at 10:25 am. We encourage everyone to be fully vaccinated and to maintain physical distancing. The pews on the window side are available for distanced seating. Mask wearing is required.

If you wish to worship over Zoom, contact the church office for how to join. Our Zoom link has recently changed.
