Study Conference 2015 Coming Soon!

background

The Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches will host its annual general meeting and Study Conference 2015 on October 21-23, 2015 at Westwood Community Church in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The theme is God, Sex & Church: a theology of healthy sexuality.

Join us in Winnipeg where we’ll gather as Canadian Mennonite Brethren to gain a clearer vision of God’s design for human sexuality and of the church’s role in bearing witness to that vision.
