Vancouver, B.C. — A normal beach party includes swimming, beach volleyball, and other fun activities, but by the time young adult delegates and participants of Mennonite Church Canada Assembly 2012  arrived at Garry Point Park in Richmond B.C. on Saturday evening, July 14, it was growing dark. Too dark to play any games requiring hand-eye coordination.

That didn’t stop the fun for those who chose to stay up late to talk to new-found friends, despite their fatigue. Many of them discussed the major discernment sessions regarding the Being a Faithful Church process that had taken place that day.

Others went for a walk along the water.

Joe Heikman, associate pastor of First United Mennonite Church, Vancouver, hosted the event and invited Mennonite young adults from the area who weren’t registered for Assembly.

In all, approximately forty people attended the event.
