The boards of Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) Canada and MCC Manitoba announce the sale of the organizations’ shared property at 134 Plaza Drive, Winnipeg, finalized on June 1, 2022.
“One hundred years ago, we responded to crisis in Ukraine,” says MCC U.S. Executive Director Ann Graber Hershberger. “A century later, we find ourselves walking alongside the people of Ukraine in crisis once again. They are pleading for our prayer and support — and a reminder they have not been forgotten during this time.”
Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) B.C. and Mennonite Disaster Service (MDS) Canada have entered into a partnership agreement to respond to the floods that hit B.C. last November.
“When the full scope of the flooding became known, it was apparent we needed more resources to help our B.C. Unit to respond,” said Ross Penner, who directs operations for MDS Canada.
It has now been several days since heavy rains caused massive flooding in southern B.C. The situation is rapidly evolving, and we are actively assessing where our help might be needed. We are now inviting cash donations for our BC Flood Response for those impacted by heavy rains and flooding.
Please pray for Arnold Community Church, Broadway Church, Central Community Church, Greendale MB Church, Main Street Church, Sardis Community Church, and Yarrow MB Church as they assist those who have been affected by the flood in BC. Let’s also remember to pray for the emergency response teams who have been working tirelessly to ensure the safety of those who have been affected by the flooding.
Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) Canada will relocate its central material resources warehouse from Plum Coulee, Manitoba, to New Hamburg, Ontario.
