Mennonite Church Canada website chosen as 'site of the month'

   

Winnipeg, Man.—An internet organization has chosen to honor Mennonite Church Canada’s website (found at www.mennonitechurch.ca) as March "Site of the Month." Mennonite.net (found at www.mennonite.net) is a project of Goshen College and Mennonite Mutual Aid. It aims to provide technology services for Mennonite Church

"Mennonite Church Canada's site is noteworthy for several reasons. First, it is one of the earliest online expressions of the new Mennonite Church structure. Second, it is the first site to make use of the Mennonite Church's new visual identity, with its dove logo and green and white color scheme. The site features new church information and news about Mennonite Church Canada. For those north and south of the border, the site is well worth a visit," said Mennonite.net in announcing its March site of the month.

Mennonite Church Canada came into being at the 1999 church-wide conference in St. Louis. During the conference, which marked the historic merging of the Conference of Mennonites in Canada, General Conference Mennonite Church and the Mennonite Church General Assembly, attenders voted for the redefinition of the Mennonite Church according to geographical boundaries. This is where Mennonite Church Canada and Mennonite Church USA were formed.

"Site of the Month" is a new feature from the staff at Mennonite.net. "We know we're not the only Mennonite entity on the net... did you? The Site of the Month features sites which the staff find helpful and fun, for Mennonites and for people unfamiliar with the Mennonite denomination. Take a look... these sites are worth it," says their site.

Previous sites include Third Way Café (www.thirdway.com), Mennonite Resources Network (www.mrn.org), MennoLink (www.mennolink.org), Pontius’ Puddle (www.pontius.com), Mennonite Voluntary Service (www.mennonitevs.org), and Mennonite Connections on the WWW (www-personal.umich.edu/~bpl/menno.html).
