On Sunday, Dec 31 at 10am we will have a Celebration Service. We will look back at 2017 and take it all in. The good, the bad, the ugly – and give it all to God with gratitude. We will look forward to 2018 with anticipation. We will come together to encounter the living God! Emmanuel – Jesus – the very representation of the Father made present to us by the Holy Spirit. Living in us – active amongst us. Healing, restoring, reconciling, renewing.
We are hosting a party in our parking lot again this year!
Saturday, Sept 30, 6pm – 9:30pm.
BBQ, musicians, arts and crafts, and artists working on a live collaborative graffiti piece – all at 782 Main St Parking Lot.
It’s the culmination of the Wall-to-Wall festival that has seen five new contemporary street art pieces emerge in the neighbourhood. It’s also part of the North End Arts week and Nuit Blanche Winnipeg festivities. And, as if that weren’t enough, our parking lot is the rendezvous point for the Rainbow Trout Music Festival Bike Jam.
Wall-to-Wall 2017 is a collaboration by Synonym Art Consultation, North End Community Renewal Corporation and Graffiti Art Programming (the same people who organized the murals on our building). The purpose of the Wall-to-Wall project is, in their own words, “to transform an under-utilized warehouse district and to provide platforms for under-represented voices to be heard.” We’re expecting 1,800 people this year.
Also, the Flatlanders Studio will be open all evening as an official venue of Nuit Blanche. It will be showcasing a show called “Selcouth: a look into the upbringing of Winnipeg’s metal musicians.” The Bear Clan will be onsite for security in the Parking Lot.
6pm – Free Hotdog BBQ
6:30pm – Faouzia
7:30pm – Super Duty Tough Work X Studio 393
8:30pm – DJ Srub
9:30pm – Rainbow Trout Music Festival Bike Jam Departs

Stories & Encouragement
Please share your stories! We’d love to hear some of you reflections, especially if you were around in the early days. What has God done in your life as a result of being part of WCV. Please consider sending us a note or a short (1 min max) video message. We also highly value any prayers or encouragements you may have for us. You can send them to Andy, or use the form below.
Cheryl Bear is Nadleh Whut’en from the Carrier Nation in Northern British Columbia. Her story includes having earned a doctorate, and being an award winning First Nations recording artist and national and international speaker. She and her family are living the story by visiting every one of the 1000 First Nations communities, Reservations, Reserves and settlements in the USA and Canada sharing the Great Story of the Creator’s love and helping Native people to encounter Jesus. They have been to over 600 locations so far…and amazingly seem to have found “cuzzins” in every one. Cheryl is well known for her wisdom, sense of humour and ability to raise awareness of the value and uniqueness of Indigenous people and their culture.
David Ruis is a well-respected worship leader, songwriter and communicator who has opened the way for many people around the world to encounter Jesus. Together with his wife Anita, he is also known as a church planter and pastor having established churches in Canada and the US within the Vineyard family of churches. For the Ruis family, living the story involves a lifestyle that integrates creative worship expression with community that is engaged with the issues of poverty and social injustice. David has also been instrumental in seeing Vineyard communities established in Nepal and India. Much of his focus tends to be in indigenous settings, working amongst the poor as well as facilitating leadership development and fostering originality in songwriting and the arts in various cultural settings.
Robby Dawkins has been called by God to live the story by helping equip and release the church in the power ministry of the Holy Spirit. Power encounters with Jesus leading to radically changed lives have been a mark of the church he planted with his wife Angie in Aurora, Illinois and in his itinerant ministry all over the world. Robby teaches on prophetic ministry, healing, ministry of the presence of God and deliverance from demonic power: all ministries in which he, and others he has mentored, have been significantly used as God’s Kingdom breaks in with signs and wonders. He was recently featured in the movies “Furious Love” and “Father of Lights”. His book “Do What Jesus Did “ was released in June 2013.
