Mennonite Church Canada Assembly (Saskatoon, July 6th to 10th)

The 2016 Assembly is underway! Please pray for safe travels, Spirit-filled times of worship and discussion, and an honest, loving, and constructive dialogue and decision-making process on the various contentious issues facing our denomination at this time.

All those interested in getting updates on the doings, discussions, and decisions of the Assembly (including livestreams of all worship and plenary sessions) can find out more here:

Our own attendees (Greg and Aften, John and Joan G., and John H.) will be reporting back in the coming weeks, and our area church (MCBC) is going to have a special session in September to discuss how we should respond to the decisions made at the Assembly, especially those regarding the Future Directions Task Force and the Being a Faithful Church process.
