Extra details about Ride for Refuge 2014:

Our team, TUMC Turtles, is participating in Ride for Refuge 2014 - Canada on Oct. 4, 2014!

Would you join us to raise some cold, hard cash for people in need?

The Ride for Refuge is a cycling fundraiser that supports 200 charitable partners who in turn support thousands more who are displaced, vulnerable or exploited - refugees, orphans, widows, street kids, the urban poor,  the homeless, victims of human trafficking - the list is extensive. This fall, thousands of other riders and volunteers in Canada and the USA will raise $2,000,000 for some of the most marginalized people in our world.

TUMC riders are especially important for the fundraising efforts of Lazarus Rising, an initiative of Mennonites and Brethren in Christ responding to homelessness and marginalization in Toronto.

It partners with Sanctuary, a downtown Toronto community and church seeking to build connections among people on the margins of society and people in the mainstream.

By walking with the poor on Toronto's streets, Lazarus Rising encounters the Jesus of "the least of these" and puts legs on Menno Simons' conviction that "true evangelical faith … clothes the naked, feeds the hungry, comforts the sorrowful, shelters the destitute."

Would you help us help them? Would you join me and our great team? Come join in the fun (and sweat) by clicking on the TUMC Turtles Registration for Ride for Refuge page (to pledge or to ride).

From our Team Page, register and join our team to RIDE with us on October 4th. Let Erika F. know if you have any questions. She's looking forward to biking with you.

MCC Ontario's proposed draft bylaw changes are in this PDF, with the following explanation and notes prior to their AGM on June 19:

(Updated June 13, 2014): 'Article 3 - Board of Directors 3.2 "Composition of the Board" of Bylaw #1, 3.2 (g) has been added and reads as follows: “Every reasonable effort shall be made to ensure no more than ½ of the Directors come from any one member Conference.”' [Continuing with the original announcement]:

"A summary of the most important changes contained in the new Bylaw #1:

1. A smaller Board of Directors, [from 21 to 15]  that is more skill and experience based to better allow a growing organization like MCC to respond well to emerging governance challenges.

2. A move away from the tradition of larger conferences having more representatives on the Board, while ensuring no single conference is excessively predominant.

3. An openness to congregations outside the Anabaptist Christian faith community, who are deeply involved and committed to MCC, becoming members of MCC Ontario.

4. Conferences become non-voting members of MCC by stating their desire to do so, and their member congregations automatically become the voting members of the corporation, exercising their vote through chosen delegates at annual general or other special meetings."
