We invite you to join us for an evening of dining, sharing in community and storytelling, at one of our 2019 Winter Fundraising Banquets in Nanaimo!
We are pleased to have James & Janet Toews as our speakers this year. James is the current pastor at Neighbourhood Church in Nanaimo, while also being on the MCC Board. Last year he and Janet joined MCC on a learning tour to Zambia and experienced MCC's work first hand. They look forward to sharing stories from their experiences, and what it looks like to connect MCC's work around the world with the next generation.
We are excited to welcome, from Kenya, the Moipei Triplets as our musical guests at this year's Banquets! Magdalene, Mary and Marta have performed at venues such as the AT&T Centre in San Antonio Texas, to a rousing ovation, and won African continent-wide performance awards. Having recently graduated with honours in musical performance from St.Mary's University in Texas - we are honoured to have them join us!
Doors open at 5:30 pm, punch is served at 6:00 pm and a catered buffet dinner to be served at 6:30pm.
Since it began nearly a century ago, MCC has been an integral mission partner with a wide variety of Anabaptist churches in Canada and the U.S. Together with MCC, Anabaptist churches and local partners join together to respond to disasters; work with local initiatives to provide food, work, health and education; and promote peace where conflict divides.
Tickets are $20 each or $150 for a table of 8. Tickets are non-refundable and not tax-receiptable. A catered buffet dinner is included in the ticket price. Please let us know ahead of time if you have food restrictions.
*Ticket sales end on Friday, February 8th at 11:30 PM so that we are able to provide numbers to our caterer*
