June is National Indigenous History month in Canada, a time for all Canadians to reflect upon and learn the unique history, heritage, resilience and diversity of Indigenous Peoples. We observe National Indigenous Peoples' Day on June 21. These observances are also an opportunity to reaffirm our commitment toward right and renewed relationships with Indigenous Peoples.

We have something very special planned for Sunday, June 16 to celebrate at Hope. Several special guests from the Blackfoot Nation have been invited to share in our worship service. Following service, we will share in bannock, take part in a round dance and unveil a custom piece of art to honour our commitment to a continued reconciliation journey.

Please join us Sunday, June 16th 10:00am at Hope Lutheran Church.

* Come to service with an open mind and heart and share in this celebration.

* Make a batch of Bannock and bring it along to share during fellowship.

* Participate in a round dance following the service. “A round dance is a special traditional event in First Nations culture that brings people together to heal, to honour and to celebrate life.”
