With cooperation from the Mennonite Central Committee in Calgary, and grants from Calgary, Foothills and South Alberta Presbyteries (as of press time), we have arranged to have this show presented at Foothills Mennonite Church. If you have friends or family who also want to see “New Blood”, encourage them to buy tickets on Eventbrite at bit.ly/New-Blood .
Although this event is organized by the ANWC United Church Women, all women of the United Church are welcome! We think you will enjoy and be enriched by the program we have prepared and by meeting and worshipping with other women in the peaceful environment of the FCJ Centre in Calgary. Registration includes accommodation and all meals, or if you live close by, you can choose to come for the day and go home at night. Free parking available.
Plan to arrive 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Thursday afternoon, with the program beginning at 3:30. We will continue all day Friday, and conclude on Saturday after lunch. In addition to our guest speakers and “New Blood”, the program will include singing, fellowship, daily
devotionals, a memorial service, worship on Saturday (with communion), and the AGM.
