As we prepare for the Annual Meeting in Winnipeg, Jeff Anderson, the Canadian conference Superintendent has sent this on and asked me to share it with you.

Dear Members and Friends of the ECCC,

In one week our church family will gather in Winnipeg from across Canada for the 100th Annual Conference and AGM of the Evangelical Covenant Church of Canada. If you are planning to attend then God's blessings as you travel. If you are not able to attend I would ask that you would pray for our gathering. We plan on having a good time but we also want to hear from God as we gather.

Our theme is "Giving Thanks and Going Forward". Our desire is to both honour the past and at the same time to take
hold of our future. A significant part of "Going Forward" will be our 100th Anniversary Celebration Offering. This
offering will be open until the end of June. Within the next week you will receive specific information regarding
this opportunity. Our desire is wide-spread participation.

We are believing that the Lord will direct concerning the amounts so we have not set a "target". Our aim is for the core value of being "connectional" to find a practical outworking through this offering.

Please consider your part thoughtfully when you receive the offering envelope.

In Christ,
Jeff Anderson, Superintendent
