Community and Program Committee


Community Building and Program serves to create opportunities for the people of Mennonite Church Alberta (MCA) to celebrate what God is doing, to build community, and to develop relationships.  Various events have been planned, including A Taste of MCA, and the committee continues to look for new ways to work at these goals. 

Working with the Communications Coordinator, stories have been gathered from people and churches within MCA and distributed province-wide through the MCA website and the weekly MCA Communiqué.  MCA events are promoted using the website, the Communiqué and bulletin announcements which are sent to congregations each Wednesday.

To support and encourage MCA post-secondary students to attend Mennonite institutions, a student bursary is offered yearly.  We believe that when our young adults grow spiritually, the greater community grows spiritually as well.  The deadline to apply is July 31 of each year for the upcoming school year.  Applications are available at

The Annual Delegate Sessions (ADS) is an important way that MCA congregations come together.  The ADS takes place over a weekend in March.  Much is offered at these sessions for all.  Each year a different MCA congregation hosts this weekend and has the opportunity to participate in the visioning and planning for the event. This congregation often sees this weekend as an opportunity to share God’s love while serving others.
