The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada: Call for Prayer for Court Case

May 9, 2011

The Supreme Court of Canada is about to hear a case that could change the face of religious education in Canada.  You need to know about it!

Greetings Ministry Leader:

Read a letter from our President, Bruce Clemenger, regarding the importance of this case. A brief discussion of the issues is available here to help you understand the case more fully.  Concerned church leaders and parents can access and download a PDF of the detailed Frequently Asked Questions FAQ. Please feel free to copy and distribute these resources to your members.

The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada (EFC) will be an intervenor before the Supreme Court of Canada to address the issue of whether parents have the right to choose the kind of religious education their children will receive. This case will be argued on Wednesday, May 18, 2011.  We NEED your prayers!

•    The EFC has a long history of appearances before the Supreme Court of Canada We are committed to protect the religious liberty of Canadians and to proclaim biblical truths in the public square.
•    The EFC reports on issues that are important to Evangelicals, offering the opportunity for Christians to discover information concerning important events that they would not hear about through mainstream media.

The EFC is the national association of evangelical Christians, gathered together for influence, impact and identity in ministry and public witness. Since 1964 the EFC has provided a national forum for Evangelicals and a constructive voice for biblical principles in life and society.


Will you stand behind us in prayer as we fight for the rights of parents all across Canada?
