Update about Winnipeg Church of the Deaf (WCD)'s 95th Anniversary Celebration!

From Noah & Alyssa Buchholz, who will be coming to Winnipeg for the WCD 95th Anniversary Celebration. Friday evening - October 18th with a fun and learning experience with Noah and Alyssa, then on Saturday...

Here are the title of the workshops...

Mysteries of the Parables #1 - Saturday morning
Mysteries of the Parables #2 - Saturday morning
Mysteries of the Parables #3 - Saturday afternoon
Parables and Deaf Culture  - Saturday afternoon

Here is a description of the workshops:

The parables of Christ are filled with symbols, hidden meanings, and cultural marks. These stories, first told by Jesus of Nazareth in the 1st century AD, have been read by many people over many centuries. Yet, the problem is... time changes. Our culture today is much different from the culture of Jesus' time. The parables were told for us, but certainly not to us. They were told to people of the 1st century AD who had a different understanding of the world. Come and study with Pastor Noah Buchholz how to read the parables of Christ through 1st century eyes as he explains the culture and history behind the parables and how the parables apply to our lives today as Christians.

Saturday evening, we will have a BANQUET at DCM beginning at 6 p.m. and will have a presentation of WCD History and then some speeches and time to view the display of some of WCD History.

Sunday morning at 11:00 a.m. there will be a Worship and Communion Service in the DCM Theatre and everyone is welcome to attend. There will be a love offering collected and also lunch following the service.

Interpretation services will be provided only for Saturday evening and Sunday morning. The other times, the information will be in ASL only.

Looking forward to seeing you.  If you would like to register, the deadline has been extended to Saturday, September 28th.. you can get a copy of the brochure by dropping by DCM and checking the bulletin board.
