Morrow Gospel Church and Nassau Street Church in Winnipeg, Winkler EMMC, Bagot Community Chapel, Glencross Mennonite Church, Gospel Fellowship Church in Steinbach, and Lakeside Gospel Chapel in St. Laurent are excited about being "host" churches for this day. Everyone is invited to visit another EMMC congregation and experience worship and celebration with another congregation. These host locations look forward to the many guests that will join them for the morning worship time and fellowship lunch.
Churches across EMMC will have the opportunity to share the same video message by guest speaker Mark Clark. We are encouraging each congregation to share Communion that morning as well. How exciting to have churches across Canada, Mexico South and Belize join together for the Lord's Supper!
