March 3rd - March 4thMCM Gathering 2023: Re-Imagining Church Together

The world has changed in the past half-decade, and so has the church. Congregations now find themselves pondering over their present and wondering about their future. Who are we as a church? What is God calling us to be and to do now, in this time and place? This is true not only for us as individual congregations, but also for us collectively as Mennonite Church Manitoba. Who are we as MCM? What is God calling us to be and to do in 2023 and beyond? Join us for Gathering 2023 as we lean into the Spirit together, seeking to move into the future with anticipation and joy. 

“Now to God who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, to God be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever! Amen!” (Ephesians 3:20-21)

Gathering Image

Image creator, Lynette Wiebe, loosely defines this image as a fractal, with the following definition: Fractals are often an expression of symmetry created with differing individual components all striving to become one organism and using their dissimilarities to become whole.

Lynette has been sharing her fractals in worship at Charleswood Mennonite and we felt such an image would be great for stimulating our imagination in "re-imagining the church together".
