Mum’s in hospital. She finds it hard to be happy. You start making a list of everything worth living for. You leave it on her pillow. You know she’s read it because she’s corrected your spelling." 20 years and thousands of things later, the list takes on a life of its own, exploring the lengths we go to for those we love. Co-produced with Rosebud Theatre, at the Studio Stage in Rosebud, AB. Tickets & details HERE. "One of the funniest plays you’ll ever see.” —The Guardian.

PLAN TO PROTECT At OEFC, we follow Plan to Protect guidelines for the safety and well-being of the children in the care of the nursery and children's ministry classes. All of our workers and volunteers are required to complete training, and we implement a Child Check-In system with labels for the child and parent alike. Parents or older siblings are REQUIRED to show their label when picking up their family member. Recognizing that we have high-risk children in our care at times, we will continue to strictly follow these guidelines. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation! Talk with Pastor Chris for more information.

PARKING @ OEFC Especially as we have only one service in August, please remember to be a good neighbor to those who have homes across from the church parking lot. Please do NOT park in front of the homes. Also, it is against Town bylaws to park in an alleyway. You may park across the street from the homes, or across the street from the strip mall next to Tim Horton's. Thank you for helping our church maintain a good standing in our community!
