March 6

Mission & Service     10:00 a.m.

The Covid pandemic has presented unique obstacles for the work of Mission and Service but patience and innovative thinking has allowed the work to continue in various areas.  Donna Entz has found new ways of connecting with the diverse community of North Edmonton thereby continuing to build connections that lead to better understandings between people of different faith traditions.  Donna has also expanded her international work through Peacemakers Confessing Christ International and a Peace Africa group. 

Jake Froese has continued to keep building relationships with the Muslim community in Calgary and has recently joined the Calgary Interfaith Council.  Jake, along with Riek Tut, has also been able to work with members of the Calgary South Sudanese community who are looking to establish a South Sudanese Mennonite Church in Calgary.

Both Donna and Jake will share some of their experiences and give time for questions from the audience.

Constitution & Bylaws    11:00 a.m.

A revised Constitution and Bylaws will be brought to delegates for approval at MCA’s 2021 Annual Delegate Sessions on March 20. This past year MCA Executive and General Council began a review of MCA’s Constitution and Bylaws, which had not been updated for some time. A number of revisions and updates have been made in response to this review.

The following documents have been prepared to assist in discernment.
--the proposed Constitution and Bylaws
--a report summarizing the changes proposed in these governing documents and the rationale for them
--a copy of the existing Constitution and Bylaws that have been registered and remain in force.

Copies of these are available here https://mcab.ca/ads21

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.
