It is with sadness we announce Connie Lawson fought her last round with cancer late in the afternoon of Friday, February 5, 2016 . Her body has lost, but her soul triumphs through Jesus Christ, her Saviour, whom she loved and served wholeheartedly. Since receiving a lung cancer diagnosis in April 2015, Connie faced her illness with grace and courage, fiercely holding on to Philippians 1:21 “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.”

Connie served as Minister of Women’s Ministries from 2000-2015. She is also the wife of Ian Lawson, our Lead Pastor. Connie’s passion for mentoring women in the faith, especially young women and mothers, was the foundation for her ministry. Countless lives have been touched by her commitment to loving, teaching, praying for, and supporting women in their varied and influential roles. The Evangelical Free Church of Lethbridge will always cherish the memory of Connie and her ministry.

On behalf of the church board, staff, and members of E-Free, we express our deepest and sincere sympathy to the family and friends of Connie Lawson. Our heartfelt prayers are with you as we mourn her passing.

A Public Viewing will be held on Wednesday, February 10 from 7:00-8:30 pm at the Evangelical Free Church of Lethbridge for anyone wishing to pay their respects.  |  Worship Centre, please use the Main (Southeast) Entrance.

A Funeral Service will be held on Thursday, February 11 at 1:00 pm at the Evangelical Free Church of Lethbridge. Everyone is welcome at the Graveside Service and Reception to follow.

The Funeral Service will stream live for family and friends unable to attend the service. The video will also remain online for a few days following the service.


“and those the Lord has rescued will return.
They will enter Zion with singing;
    everlasting joy will crown their heads.
Gladness and joy will overtake them,
    and sorrow and sighing will flee away.”
—Isaiah 35:10
