Grey Cup Breakfast 2019 (Calgary)

Football Fans in the military community, you are invited!!!

The Grey Cup Breakfast is a fun filled, entertaining event produced by Athletes in Action for over 30 years.

Each year the breakfast features CFL players and coaches. Over the years, speakers have included Henry Burris, Kenyon Rambo, Anthony Calvillo, Kerry Joseph, Wally Buono, Michael “Pinball” Clemons and other CFL stars.

The Grey Cup Breakfast provides photo opportunities with the Grey Cup itself, prizes and local entertainment. However, the element that makes the breakfast so unique is the fact that the players share not only football stories but also their life stories. Attendees are given a rare glimpse into the men behind the uniforms. As part of their presentations you will also hear how their faith in Jesus Christ has impacted both their professional and personal lives. The combination of professional, personal and spiritual elements ensures the sell-out of this event each year.

WHEN: Saturday, November 23rd, 2019 | 8:00AM
WHERE: Big Four Roadhouse, Stampede Park
ATTIRE: Civilians – Business casual.

Members of the military community can contact the MCF office for more information.

We resumed our normal programming on September 15th and onwards for 2019/2020 so please mark your calendars.

We are extremely excited about the year to come as we are planning to spend time in fellowship and worship every 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month.

Our time together starts at 17:30 hrs for potluck (Bring what you want to eat + enough to share with others).

Worship time starts at 18:30 hrs and officially ends at 20:00 hrs yet we welcome people to stay, pray and fellowship for a while longer.

We are very grateful for all the prayers and participation of our last season.  It has been a marvelous year of ministry here at Borden and we are continually amazed and thankful to be able to join God in all that He is doing here.

Hope many can come and experience the love of God through our time together.

This year’s annual general meeting (AGM) is scheduled to take place on 16 February commencing at 1:00 pm Ottawa time. I am particularly excited for this year’s AGM for three reasons. First, I will report to you on the activities of the MCF over the past year, which have been significant. Second, I will present to you the MCF ministry plan that is a product of the MCF’s planning methodology referred to a “pray & plan.” Third, for the first time in the history of the MCF, members of the MCF, no matter where they live or where they are at the timing of the AGM, will be able to join in the meeting, as long as they are connected to the internet.

In this notice I would like to highlight my third reason for my excitement.  Since stepping into the role of President I have been concerned that our efforts to build a sense of unity across the MCF membership was frustrated by the geographical reality that Canada is big.  Our membership stretches across Canada and even internationally. So, building a sense of camaraderie and enabling members and comradesto participate in the activities of the MCF has been difficult. The MCF has been characterized by a lack of unity of effort and concentration of force, two important principals of operations. However, over the past year, I along with members of the MCF executive and War Room teams have been trailing teleconferencing applications.  Granted, teleconferencing isn’t new, but the tech support and funding required to conduct events has been too much for the limited resources of the MCF to afford. Also, the quality of what was available was not sufficient to support our needs.  This has changed.  For this year’s AGM we will use the application called “ZOOM.” This application will permit you to join the MCF AGM, to participate either through chat or voice, to view presentations that will be given and allow members to vote on accepting the ministry plan, the budget, and the appointment of new leaders.  All from the comfort of where ever you choose to be at the time of the meeting.  Again, the only condition is that you have internet access.

I am excited for this year’s AGM.  The MCF has enjoyed a good year of progressive ministry.  The results of our process of praying and planning has yielded exciting results for the coming year and years.  And, for the first time, attendance at the MCF AGM is available for all without associated travel arrangements and costs.  I look forward to meeting with you at the MCF AGM on 16 Feb.

***Only members of the MCF will be given the right to vote at the AGM. Please confirm your membership by contacting the office.
