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.

Movie Night and Joint Service at Sherbrooke!

This weekend we've got two special events -- a community movie night on Friday (July 1st) at 7pm in the church basement. It's free, family-friend, and there'll be delicious snacks. Friends, family, and non-churchgoers welcome. Come hang out with us before the fireworks!

And then, this Sunday, July 3rd, we'll be having a joint service at Sherbrooke Mennonite Church (just 10 minutes walk away at 7155 Sherbrooke St.) to kick off our summer pulpit exchange on the Psalms. The service is at 10am, and we'll also be having communion together.
