Meeting Joji Pantoja, MC Canada Witness Worker in the Phillippines

Joji Pantoja, MC Canada Witness worker, and CEO of Coffee for Peace, will be joining us Saturday, March 3rd at 10am (in the church basement), to connect with us and share stories of her peace building work in the Philippines. Joji is married to Dann Pantoja and together they give leadership to Coffee for Peace, a fair trade income generation business supporting peace and community building programs in her work with indigenous coffee farmers in the Philippines. They are partners with Mennonite Church Canada in their efforts with Peace Builders Community and Peace and Reconciliation Teams.

Join us for a good cup of coffee and some time with one of the peace builders our community supports! Talk to Adam if you have any questions.

Prayer and Communion for March

Our monthly Prayer and Communion service will be on Wednesday, March 7th at 7;30 pm in the church basement -- please come join us as we encounter God through prayer, scripture, and the Lord's Supper.

Next Community Dinner: Thursday March 22nd

Thank you to everyone who came out for our community dinner on Tuesday -- we had a great time together! Our next Community Dinner will be on Thursday, March 22nd at 6pm, and we'd love to have even more people from the church join us. Also, if you'd be interested in helping out, please let Lydia or Adam know... we're especially looking for a few people to be a 'cleanup crew' at the end of the meal.

Events in February

Ash Wednesday Service: Wednesday January 14th, 7:30pm. Come join us for a Valentine's Day that focusses on God's love for us which triumphs over death and sin!
