Bogotá, Colombia – As excitement continues to grow for the global Assembly, Mennonite World Conference has created a variety of free resources for congregations and communities to use as they talk about and promote Pennsylvania 2015, all available on the MWC website.
Church leaders can find a downloadable word doc with ready-made announcements to use in church bulletins. They come with suggested dates for when to publish them and are an easy way to mention MWC on a weekly basis.
If a visual is needed there is a colour poster for PA 2015 with dates including Assembly Gathered, Assembly Scattered and the Global Youth Summit. This is available as a PDF file, easy to download and print.
As a way to introduce MWC to congregations and friends, there is a 3.5 minute video called, “Who is Mennonite World Conference?” This video explains what it means to be a worldwide community of faith and is available in English, Spanish and French.
Another great video, that shows how MWC is much more than just the global Assembly every six years, is “Beyond Assemblies.” This video is available in English and Spanish.
There are also resources for those who want to support PA 2015 in prayer. Brothers and sisters from the global Anabaptist family world-wide are invited to join the PA 2015 Prayer Network. There is information posted online and people can sign up to receive monthly communications with scriptural meditations, stories, information surrounding Pennsylvania 2015, and items to pray about.
The latest issue of Assembly News is posted online. This 2 page news sheet contains all the latest information about PA 2015 preparations and is also available for download.
All of these resources are easily found on the “Resources” page in the Assembly section of the MWC website: www.mwc-cmm.org/pa2015resources.
