This Week At Faith June 11 – June 18 2017

2017 ELCIC National Convention Volunteers Needed

This summer Winnipeg will host our National Church Convention at the University of Manitoba July 6-8th. As the host synod, we are looking forward to welcoming around 200 delegates, visitors and guests from across Canada and around the world.

The Local Arrangements Committee is in the midst of attending to the many details, including recruiting volunteers. We have an urgent need for volunteers for the following areas: Stewards, Ushers, Information Desk, Registration, Transportation, and Office Support. 

No experience is necessary and the time commitment can be as little as a few hours. If you, or someone you know is available please let us know!

A volunteer orientation session will take place 10AM-12PM Saturday June 24th @ St. Mark’s Lutheran Church.
