Stemming from our desire to grow near to Jesus and to grow in faith as his disciples, we offer our ministry program called PCC U (PCC University). As the name suggests, PCC U is geared at providing events/seminars to help us grow as disciples of Jesus.
This fall grow spiritually through the following opportunities:

During this powerful and life transformative event, we will have the opportunity to participate in an "exercise" that covers more than 500 years in a 90-minute experiential workshop that aims to foster understanding about our shared history as Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.
The Blanket Exercise will offer participants the opportunity to walk on blankets representing the land and into the role of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples by reading scrolls and carrying cards which ultimately determine their outcome as they literally ‘walk’ through situations that include pre-contact, treaty-making, colonization and resistance.
By engaging participants on both emotional and intellectual levels, Blanket Exercises are able to both educate and create understanding between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples … in Canada and throughout the world!
