MBCM Assembly 2019
March 1 - March 2
Join us for Assembly 2019! Our theme this year is “Linked” and it will be a time to hear one another stories and find out how we are linked in the MB Family.
Location: Steinbach MB Church
Focus Verse – Philippians 2: 1 – 4
2 Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common
sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, 2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. 3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves,4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
