Manitou Christian Fellowship Church Profile

May 2022

 

The Manitou Christian Fellowship Church is a rural church that meets at the corner of PTH 3 and Voth Street in Manitou located in south central Manitoba.  The church was founded in 1927 and is affiliated with the Mennonite Brethren Church of Manitoba and the Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches.

We are seeking to fill the position of full-time lead pastor with someone who has the passion to disciple and lead our church in the ongoing process of seeking and following God’s will for our church, especially in the areas of community outreach and discipleship.  Our area is not culturally Christian so we seek a pastor who can relate to others who are not interested in religion but need to see Christ modelled. 

 

Our mission statement is: To glorify God by helping people find and follow Jesus.  It is important to us to be biblically centred in all we do, whether in preaching, teaching, praying, singing, serving, or sharing.   We welcome people from all backgrounds to join us in learning and growing together in our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.  Recognizing that our work extends beyond the walls of our building, we aim to have a positive impact on people's lives and advance the cause of Christ.  Therefore, our people are generally very involved in local community events and in developing relationships outside of the church family.

 

We are a small church with many seniors but recent growth in young families, many of whom are homeschoolers.  The last couple years have seen several baptisms.  Presently, our youth group has discontinued due to lack of numbers, but we desire to start another one in the near future.  Going forward we plan to focus on loving our neighbours and doing community outreach, while also discipling those around us.

 

Our ministries include one worship service on Sunday morning with an average attendance of 55; Sunday School classes; regular fellowship times through special events and Sunday potluck meals; prayer meetings every week; Bible study groups; Ladies’ Prayer Sister program; participation in care home services; a children’s tent at the Manitou fall festival; Christmas choir; supporting a local youth drop-in centre; and missionary support.  Please refer to our website for further details and our belief statement:  www.manitouchristianfellowship.com.

Manitou is part of the Municipality of Pembina which includes the villages of Darlingford and La Riviere.  This is mainly a farming community with many supporting businesses, services and numerous attractions.  Refer to The Municipality of Pembina website for more information:  www.pembina.ca.
