Six Alberta congregations in the Calgary area will be the first to launch a Live For Peace Campaign. First Mennonite, Trinity Mennonite (DeWinton), Foothills Mennonite, Calgary Chinese, Calgary Vietnamese and English langugae congregations, and Bergthal Mennonite (Didsbury) churches are banding together to sponsor the first ever Live For Peace campaign on Nov. 23, 2009.
