Our Vision Statement
MCC Alberta’s peace program works towards partnering with communities both locally and internationally to raise awareness around our global need for peace. Our hope is to build up people with a consciousness for peace in a world so often divided so that we can talk with each other about how to live out peace in all aspects of our lives. It is as underlying goal to recruit and train peace promoters throughout Alberta that will engage with us, and motivate and encourage us all to take our place as the peacemakers that God has called us to be.
Peace Program Initiatives
A program piloted in 2010 will be happening again in spring of 2013. A series of workshops brought together young people from Alberta and young people from various countries with conflict (Palestine, Israel, Columbia, Nigeria) to talk about peacemaking. Visit our Planting Peace page to learn more or read about Planting Peace 2010.
What started as a challenge to youth to do 3 acts of peace each day for a year, has become a peace blog for people of all ages around the world! A place to stop and talk with others about peace making. “Say your peace” and learn more.
MCC Alberta has created a Peace Curriculum that provides resources to educators for integrating peace lessons into their subject lessons. This curriculum is recommended for use in both secular and religiously affiliated schools and church Sunday School programs. There are both Christian and non-religious versions available.
This MCC Alberta fundraising and Awareness building initiative was started in June of 2010 to support MCC’s work with HIV/AIDS. Three cycling trips, two at home in Alberta and one crossing the ocean to Kenya, have taken place to promote peace and raise both awareness and money for MCCs HIV/Aids work. Conversations have begun around Cycle for Life 2013. Read about these cycling adventures.
Our peace team hosts speakers and public events often at our constituent churches and other venues. These events and speakers explore global issues from a local perspective and the work of MCC and it’s partners in these various realities.
Peaceful Action in Conflict (PAC) Workshops
Our staff facilitates a series of workshops exploring how we can live peacefully in a world so often divided. These workshops are designed on a case-by-case basis. If you are interested in setting one up for a group (school group, youth group, Bible study, church community,… any group!), please feel free to contact us.
