Mennonite Church Manitoba Update

Weekly worship service for September 6, 2020  Join Morden Mennonite Church in their homes and backyards this Sunday as they share their worship service with our nationwide community of faith. Drawing on lectionary texts for this Sunday, the service focuses on the relationship between “the law” and “love.” Through song and story, readings and meditation, may we be drawn afresh into Jesus’ way of love. Join us at https://www.mennonitechurch.ca/worshipservices.   This will be the last weekly shared nationwide service for the time being. Thank you to all the congregations who shared their worship with us over these past few months.

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.
