Young Adults’ Picnic: MCC Toronto’s Young Adults will be getting together after church on Sunday, June 12 for a picnic in Riverdale Park. Meet after worship (starting around 12:30 pm) at the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen statue in Riverdale Park East. Sandwiches and refreshments will be provided. It’s a good idea to bring a blanket or a chair and something to drink!

Sundays, June | After Sundays Worship Services

Children & Families – Let’s make a pride flag! Sundays during the month of June, all children and youth who attend a service at MCC Toronto are invited to leave a colourful handprint (or several handprints) on a special piece of canvas! By the end of the month, we’ll have created a beautiful, one-of-a-kind pride flag as a reminder that we really are Better Together. This project will be set up in the Triangle classroom downstairs. Things will get a little messy, but don’t worry! That’s part of the fun, and there is space for cleaning up.

Get a “BETTER TOGETHER” t-shirt, today!
