Riverton Fellowship Circle, a Mennonite Church Manitoba congregation since 2006, thinks it can.
When it comes to the church’s goals to be Christ-centred, welcoming to visitors and a place where everyone is treated equally, it has been successful for the past 14 years, despite many roadblocks.
Two of its most recent visitors agree. Alina Itucama from just outside of Panama City, Panama, and Brigido Loewen from Pesempoo in the Paraguayan Chaco, visited Riverton on their tour of First Nations commu-nities and congregations in Manitoba for five days last month.
