Here is a list of the various ministries and programmes we’re engaged in and support.
Care Groups (also called CGs or Small Groups) are an essential part of EEFC’s ministries. CGs offer a smaller and more closely knitted group for members to fellowship, do Bible study, pray and support one another. Currently, we have 10 CGs that are meeting regularly in the following locations:
- Sering Ukay
- Bukit Jalil
- Taman Melati
- Taman Melawati
- Taman Zooview
- Wangsa Maju
Different CGs cater for members with young children, more mature/senior adults, college students and young working adults. If you’re interested to find out more, please contact:
For pastoral care and visitations, please contact Pastor David Low above.
Our youth fellowship, better known as Youth Alive!, seeks to invite teenagers from the ages of 13 to 18 to come every Sunday from 11.30 AM – 1 PM for a time of fun activities, games, fellowship and talks. This age period during a teenager’s life is crucial, as it helps form the person’s worldview and outlook of life in the onslaught of the media, Internet and peer opinion.
It is the prayer and hope of Youth Alive! that in collaboration with parents and families, we can provide an environment where friendship may flourish, positive peer and adult support can be encouraged, and the word of God can be learned in a way that is meaningful to the youths, so that their lives can be counted for our Lord Jesus’ sake.
The Sunday School welcomes all children aged 3-12 years old to join us every Sunday for one and a half hours (11:00 AM – 12:30 PM). Through the Sunday School, our children will be able to make new friends, participate in games, crafts, sing songs of praise, listen to Bible stories, and learn how God’s love makes every day better!
The classes are conducted in English and the children are grouped according to their age.
The Migrant Ministry of Emmanuel EFC seeks to honour Jesus Christ by providing pastoral care, Bible teaching and fellowship amongst migrant workers living in the KL area. Services are currently held at our church premises in a small group setting. This service is held on Sundays from 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM and the general programme is as follows:
- Praise & Worship session
- Bible Study/Sharing/Sermon
- Intercessory Prayer
SPICES is an acronym for Support for Parents, Infants and Children through Early Services. We provide support services to children with developmental delays and learning difficulties and to their parents as well.
SPICES is a non-profit community project by Emmanuel Evangelical Free Church, Wangsa Maju, KL. Every man, woman and child is valuable in the eyes of God. Each person’s presence, whatever the measure of his or her abilities, adds to the richness and diversity of life. The old adage that “variety is the spice of life” embodies a part of what SPICES believes in as we work with children with special needs.
- An Early Intervention Programme (EIP) for children from birth to 6 years of age
- A School Age Programme (SAP) for children graduating from our EIP.
The College CG is a group of youths who are in transition from school to colleges, universities and the working world. With so many competing world views and ideas in the world, the College CG hopes to inculcate a biblical way of interpreting the world while learning how to apply this view in our everyday lives.
Through Bible studies and discussions on contemporary issues, the CG hopes to help its members think through important issues such as personal decisions regarding values, relationships and career choices to wider ranging issues such as social concern and current issues affecting the world. As we journey together as a community, we hope to reflect the love of God to those around us and make a difference for Him!
The College CG currently meets every Friday at 8:30 PM. Do join us for our weekly bible studies, annual camp retreats, forums, fellowships and special celebrations!
Young Working Adults
Young Working Adults
Entering the working life after years of being a student can be challenging. Join the Young Working Adults (YWA, for short) as they participate in book and topical studies, along with non-Biblical activities such as coffee talks, outings, and prayer meetings. The YWA meets every Friday at 8:30 PM in the homes of members living in Taman Melawati.
“God is a missionary God. The Bible is a missionary book. The Gospel is a missionary subject. The Church is a missionary institution. And when the church ceases to be missionary minded, it has denied its faith and betrayed its trust.”
— “The Making of a Missionary” by J Herbert Kane, p. 1
EEFC’s missions are based on these 4 thrusts:
- Teaching the Biblical basis of missions
- Linking — Gathering and providing information related to missionary work globally
- Selection of candidates
- Being a responsible sending church
As part of our teaching thrust towards missions, we organise or participate in the following programmes:
- Missions Month — In our church calendar, every October is dedicated for missions. Missionaries and representatives from various mission agencies will be invited to share their works, situations and needs in the mission fields. In addition, one of the weekends in October will be set apart as a Missions Weekend, where a continuous series of missions related messages will be preached. Our Sunday School, Youth Alive! and College CG will also focus on missions during the month.
- Regular church meeting platforms — Opportunities will be used through our Sunday Pulpit, CGs, Youth Alive! and Sunday School sessions to create and increase awareness and support of missions.
- Missions Conferences — Examples include OMF Missions Conference and AFMC.
- The Kairos Course
- Missions through literature
We strive to link our ministries and members with missions via:
- Gathering and providing information through missions updates, newsletters, and our quarterly prayer letters
- Have missionaries visit our CGs, Youth Alive! groups and sharing their work during Sunday Service
- Participating in short term mission trips
- Meeting with missionaries during Missions Conferences
What are the criteria we use to select candidates to send into the mission field?
- Character of the candidate (credentials and charisma are secondary considerations)
- Call of the candidate (how has God called the candidate to serve Him as a missionary)
- How has God used the candidate in evangelism and ministry?
- Track record
- Being a Sending Church
A sender is someone who deems their most strategic contribution to world evangelization is to be staying in their home country and living in such a way as to support most effectively the maximum number of goers as they are able. The sender is not a washed out missionary or a goer who never made it. God calls us all to be involved in world evangelization and He calls many to be senders in His plan.
Our main responsibilities as a sending church include:
- Prayer through missionary spots during Sunday Service, Quarterly Corporate Prayer Meetings and prayer time during CG and Youth Alive! meetings. “The evangelization of the world depends first upon a revival of prayer. Deeper than the need for workers; deeper far than the need for money; deep down at the bottom of our spiritual lives, is the need for the forgotten secret of prevailing world wide prayer. Missions has progressed slowly abroad because piety and prayer have been shallow at home.” — “The Church and Missions” by Robert E. Speer (1867-1947)
- Building friendships with the missionary. This is accomplished via:
- Sharing of missionary news updates
- Bi-monthly prayer letters
- Adopting the missionary family
- Visiting the missionary
- Finance — “If there was less pleading and reliance on man to give, and more pleading and dependence on God to provide, then the problem of money for missions would find its ultimate solution.” — “East Asia’s Millions” by J. Hudson Taylor
- Caring for the missionary family
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
— Philippians 4:6
Prayer is so fundamental to our effectiveness in honouring and serving God, that we can never over emphasize the need to humble ourselves before the Lord’s throne of mercy and grace to pray.
Every bi-monthly, our church’s Prayer Newsletter is published and circulated internally amongst members. This publication contains specific prayer and praise items pertaining to our ministries and individuals. Members are encouraged to use it as a guide for personal as well as group intercessory prayer.
Every Sunday, we hold prayer meetings at 8:00 AM – 8:45 AM before Sunday Service begins.
If you have any specific prayer requests and would like this to be included in the Prayer Newsletter, please contact Lim Tack Sing and let him know the details. He can be reached via email at email@example.com.
The objectives of our Community Outreach programme are:
- To establish a Christian presence by serving the community in our immediate neighbourhood and the general KL area, through seminars, workshops, etc.
- To establish genuine friendships with the non-Christians with the aim of sharing the gospel with them
Jesus said in Luke 10:2: “… The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”
Evangelism Explosion (EE) is a training and equipping ministry with a primary focus to:
- Equip laypeople to effectively share the Gospel with non-Christians and to see witnessing become a way of life for every Christian
- Make disciples of new believers
- Become a trainer so that they in turn can train others.
EE consists of theory and practical activities called “On the Job Training” (or OJT). XEE (EE for Generation X) sessions are organised into semesters of about 8 weeks each.
