MNO Synod Bus Trip to CLAY 2020

Update: MNO Synod Bus trip will be re-scheduled for 2021. Contact the synod office with any questions.
We are again planning a bus trip for all of our youth and leaders to get to and from CLAY in Calgary. Just like other years, we’re going to take the long way around to make sure we get time to build relationships, experience parts of Canada that we might not have seen before, and take time to grow in our faith together.

Information has already been sent to youth leaders and pastors, but you can click here for the Information letter, Leader registration form, Youth registration form, and waiver form. Please make sure that all communication and paperwork goes through your congregational youth leader or pastor.

Is your Police Background Check up-to-date (no more than two years old, according to our policy) and on-file at MNO Synod Office? In Winnipeg, go here to get a background check done.

MNO Synod follows the ELCIC Policy for Protection of Children, Youth, and Other Vulnerable People. If your background check is more than two years old, please have a new one completed and included on file at MNO Synod (if you are a leader engaged in a bus trip, retreat, or other synod youth activity).

Young Adult Ministry

Due to turnover in synod staff, young adult ministry in the MNO synod will be going through a season of revisioning and rebuilding.  Watch for more information.  If you are interested in being part of strengthening and revitalizing young adult ministry in the MNO synod, please share your interest with the synod office.

You can learn about Lutheran Campus Ministry opportunities from the MNO Young Adults-Lutheran Campus Ministry Facebook page.

If you are a student at U of W or USB, in Winnipeg, you may consider joining the ecumenical chaplaincy group, Peace Seekers. Monthly gatherings like Pub Theology and Taize Prayer!
