Denominations – Who Needs Them?

an online event sponsored by  the Congregational Leadership Committee

Denominations have become a standard feature of North American church reality, mediating between the local congregation and the global church. In this Canadian Mennonite University Portable, questions like the following will be considered: Are denominations a necessary element of church life, with a positive role to play? Or are they a distraction and waste, weakening the larger mission of the church? What are the strengths and weaknesses of placing primary emphasis on the local congregation?

Who We Are

“Community” is what MCA is about! 

by Brenda Tiessen-Wiens, Moderator MCA

MCA is made up of 12 congregations that have committed to building community together. In community, we build a foundation for our identity and we find a place of belonging. In community, we draw on each other’s strengths and gifts to explore faith and pray, celebrate and mourn. We become enlivened, we practice generosity, and we share resources to do together what we can’t do alone.

Community is a place to ask the question, “And who is my neighbour?” and then to explore the nature and breadth of our neighbourhoods. The richness that we experience as members of a regional, nationwide, and global church is a taste of the Kingdom of God.
