Community Barbeque

Join us and the community for our annual Celebrate Summer event.  This year the event is a community project of the Westmount and Mount Royal community associations and Mount Royal Mennonite church.

The Anabaptist Community Bible project:


The Anabaptist Community Bible is a 500th Anniversary of Anabaptism project of MennoMedia, designed for a broad range of Anabaptist readers, and to draw readers deeper in faith and provide opportunities for reflection. This is the first Bible with commentary developed from an Anabaptist perspective.

The bible is not an Anabaptist translation, but rather uses and existing translation, the Common  English Bible (CEB).  The CEB is a scholarly translation, not a paraphrase. But it is also highly readable, intended for an 8th grade reading level. In the spirit of the 16th century Anabaptists, this is a truly a “peoples’ Bible,” readily accessible to a wide range of ordinary people.  The "peoples' Bible" concept is based on the source of the commentary.  Menno Media put out an invite hoping for 500 groups of Anabaptists from around the world to contribute their current reflections on scripture.  They received more than 500 responses, among them a response from MRMC.  We were given three (3) passages to comment on.

This ad hoc small group from the congregation got together and worked on how they understand and respond to the three passages of scripture that were assigned to us.  Their commentary was submitted to the committee that is editing and assembling the bible.   The three passages that they worked on are Leviticus 23, Leviticus 24, Mark 15:33-47 and Psalm 32.

The print version is scheduled to be ready for distribution in February 2025.  In Canada it will initially be available exclusively from Common Word in Winnipeg.  Pre-sale, at discounted prices, will be available beginning in May this year. 

There will be three formats: a hardback, soft touch/imitation leather, and genuine leather.  Prices have not been set but the estimated pre-sale price for the hard back is around $60, $75 for the soft touch and $115 for the leather.  (Common Word says that these prices are rough estimate and not a quote.)

Baby Boomers plus

Thursdays 10:30 AM

Baby Boomers have been entering their retirement for a few years already, while some are still working at jobs outside the home. This stage of life is a time of transition, sometimes entered with joy, at other times with real soul searching. A group of Boomers get together each week for conversation and mutual support and encouragement. And sometimes there are additional get togethers which include food. These conversations serve to normalize this stage of life, create community for the long haul and develop a creative life environment. Social and spiritual needs are addressed. 

Forever in Motion

Tuesday and Thursday morning from 9:30- 10:15 AM

Come join your neighbours as we engage in low-intensity workouts twice a week. As we work at strength training and improve our balance and flexibility, we are careful to begin with warm-ups and end with stretches. Exercises are led by trained Forever in Motion personnel which help to keep us upright and moving while we build community with some great friends. Proof of Vaccination is expected as are masks and physical distancing – all to keep ourselves and each other safe and healthy. Come join us!
