Community Dinner: Tuesday April 24th

Come on out for our next Community Dinner on Tuesday April 24th at 6pm. These are great times of food and fellowship with our church community, ELL students from Kingcrest, and folks from our neighbourhood. Come on out to make some new friends and have a great meal!

(if you'd like to help out, please let Lydia or Adam know -- we'd love to have a 'cleanup crew' so that our hardworking cooks don't have to do all the work afterwards.)

Mennonite Central Committee Fundraising Concert!

"Sharing in Song"
May 5th, 2018, 7pm
Gateway Church in Abbotsford

Sharing in Song, produced by violinist Calvin Dyck in partnership with MCC BC, promises to be an evening of inspiring music, heartwarming stories and a window into the work of MCC in East Africa. The evening will feature Calvin and a number of his friends, including the Pacific Mennonite Children’s Choir, The Alumni Project and the Abbotsford Youth Orchestra. A highlight of the evening will be the Moipei Trio, from Nairobi, Kenya. The trio of singers, who are triplets, have performed on tour in the US, have appeared multiple times on Kenya TV, and are currently completing their university degrees in the US.

Go to the MCC BC website for more details!
