In the Gospel of John, Jesus often asks his followers: "What are you looking for?"
How might you respond? Are you looking for answers to questions of social justice, are you looking for a place where you can honestly explore your deepest questions, are you looking for a community where you can worship in song and prayer?
Most of us are spiritually hungry for something, but it's not always easy to say just what. On one occasion, Jesus' followers, not sure how to respond, simply asked: "Teacher, where are you staying?" And he said, "Come and see." John says the disciples "came and saw, and they remained with him the rest of that day."
As you browse this website about our faith community, I invite you to come and see and, if you wish, to remain a while.
Marilyn Zehr, lead pastor
This Sunday: Children meet to practise singing at 9:45 a.m. Sunday School and Adult Education begin at 10 a.m., and the worship service at 11 a.m., which will include celebrating the baptism of Autumn Heise and Sherri Klassen, followed by Communion.
Fundraiser lunch: Our sister congregation, the Mennonite New Life Church, invites all to enjoy a delicious Central American-style lunch downstairs after this Sunday's service (May 26). The suggested donation of $7 will go toward the church's retreat fund.
Spring Congregational Meeting (1:30-3pm): Members and regular attenders are strongly encouraged to stick around for this important gathering. After lunch, we'll hear updates on our Gift Discernment committee's work and our financial audit. We'll also consider approving a policy on "Safety in relationships among children, youth and adults," and hear the pastor review team's report. Further updates are slated on sanctuary and refugees; the search for an associate pastor; Space Task Force 3; and the human sexuality task force.
