Mennonite Church Manitoba Update

Mennonite Church Manitoba Update

Mennonite Church Canada weekly online worship service for August 23, 2020 Langley Mennonite Fellowship will share a service with us this Sunday, drawing from Matthew 16:13-28. In the intimacy of Jesus’s and Peter’s master-disciple relationship, Jesus is recognized for who he is and Peter is blessed, ordained, confounded and sternly rebuked. Living with good news is so perplexing and surprising. Join us at https://www.mennonitechurch.ca/worshipservices

Help match Mennonite Church Canada’s donation to Mennonite World Conference’s COVID-19 relief fund!    This spring Mennonite Church Canada donated $50,000 to MWC’s Global Church Sharing Fund to help our sister churches around the world who are struggling to meet basic needs due to pandemic-response measures in their countries. Now Mennonite Church Canada is asking its congregations to match this donation so that we collectively raise $100,000. Donations will go through regional churches. Click here for more info.
