Pray for open minds - to really see all that is good and all that is challenging; open hearts - to listen to one another with humility; open wills - to really be, to surrender ourselves; open spirit - to really know deep in our bones that we are loved by God.
  • Please continue to remember and pray for our members who are no longer able to attend church on a regular basis: Ray and Ginnie Brubaker, Alma Burkholder, George Varghese.

  • The Mennonite Heritage Archives is partnering with Refuge 31 Films in their production of Volendam: Ship of Freedom. The film will tell the story of Mennonite Refugees who fled Europe after WWII. If you were on the ship during the February 1947 trip to Argentina (or your parent or relative was) and are interested in telling your story, Refuge 31 Films would like to interview you or your relative on camera. We are also interested in still photographs and film footage of the Volendam ship itself from that period, as well as the refugee camps in Germany. Contact: office@refuge31.com
  • Common Ground Treaty Walk - Between May 31 and June 14, 30 Indigenous, unionist and Church walkers will journey 320 kilometres from Edmonton (Treaty 6) to Calgary (Treaty 7). Stopping at a dozen sites to host public "Treaty Talks" (see www.treatytalk.com), the walk seeks to honour the sacred covenants of these lands and the call of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission for "sustained, public education and dialogue" on Treaties. Would you like to join? MC Canada is helping Indigenous colleagues and the Health Sciences Association of Alberta organize the Common Ground Treaty Walk and we have space for four core Mennonite walkers! If you are interested and available for 15 days, please email Steve Heinrichs (sheinrichs@mennonitechurch.ca), director of Indigenous-Settler Relations, for more details and a registration form. Please note that there will be no limit to "day-walker" participation; the more Mennonites, the better! Application deadline is end of January.
