Special Assembly 2017 News

Several aids for you as you report to your congregations.

  • Bulletin Announcement:
    Future Directions: Covenant New
    Delegates to the 2017 Special Assembly in Winnipeg charted a new course for Mennonite Church Canada with a 94% approval of the Covenant New restructuring proposal. The new structure revisions MC Canada as the covenant partnership created by the five nationwide Regional Churches. Working together, Regional Churches have been mandated to foster the health and vitality of local congregations, who are engaged in mission in their immediate neighbourhoods and around the world. While delegates celebrated a structure that has served them well in the past and grieved its passing, they also embraced the vision of a vibrant, nationwide Mennonite Church that is actively engaging our world with the peace of Jesus Christ.

A hopeful lament: Holding on and letting go

Willard Metzger, Executive Director of Mennonite Church Canada, was recently interviewed on the Church Matters podcast and shared what’s on his heart for the future of the church.

The interview is one more excellent way to prepare for Special Assembly 2017 (Oct. 13-15) in Winnipeg as delegates take the next steps in discerning the future of the Mennonite Church in Canada.
