Mennonite Church Canada Updates and Prayer Requests

MC Canada Special Assembly (Oct. 13-15): Discernment documents have now been released for this very important assembly, in which we will discuss and vote on a plan for denominational restructuring. See more details at http://home.mennonitechurch.ca/winnipeg2017. Our delegates for this meeting will Lydia Cruttwell and John & Joan Goossen, so please feel free to talk to them if you have any questions or feedback about these documents.

Let's "Walk the Talk" of Reconciliation: Mennonite Church Canada's Director of Indigenous Relations, Steve Heinrichs, is encouraging all MC Canada church members to show their support for Bill C-262, which calls on the Government of Canada to adopt and implement the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. More information can be found at adoptandimplement.com or at our church building on Sunday, and postcards of support for the bill are available as well.

Praying for the Democratic Republic of Congo: The Kasai region of the DR Congo is experiencing horrific violence which has killed thousands of people and displaced an estimated 1.4 million. Mennonite Church Canada is collaborating with six partners in an Anabaptist response to the armed conflict by sending food, household items, and shelter supplies to the region. To learn more, including how you can support these efforts, see this website. Please pray for those who are affected by the conflict and those who are responding to it. May the light and grace of Jesus soften hearts and sow peace.
