Winnipeg, Man.— Visitors to Mennonite Church Canada’s web site can now easily locate a congregation in their area using the Church Finder tool on the home page.

In addition, congregations now have access to their congregational profile via the web. In addition to helping web surfers locate a church, congregations can also keep current certain basic information such as names of congregational leaders, attendance and membership, and a description of their congregation. Only the church name and contact information will be displayed to the public. Other data can be viewed and updated by authorized representatives of the congregation and/or Mennonite Church Canada. The database has been designed so that selected data can be synchronized with MC Canada’s existing in-house database.

User identification numbers, passwords, and a user guide already have been or will be sent to all congregations. Office administrators and pastors should watch for information in the next edition of Equipping, to be sent by mid-November.

Smaller area conferences may find the on-line database a convenient tool for keeping track congregational contact information. The directory is accessible anywhere there is an internet connection.

The project is a joint effort of Mennonite Church Eastern Canada and Mennonite Church Canada, and is being made available to all MC Canada congregations in all area conferences. Mennonite Foundation of Canada helped to fund a portion of the project costs.

The Online Directory can be found at: http://www.mennonitechurch.ca/directory/
