CommonWord – MennoMedia Partnership
CommonWord and MennoMedia are close partners serving our common Mennonite Church Canada constituency.  It is helpful to know the complimentary services we provide.

Put simply: 
(1) MennoMedia is Mennonite Church Canada’s publisher and CommonWord is our retailer and resource centre.
(2) MennoMedia produces Anabaptist resources and CommonWord disseminates many of them to individuals and congregations within Canada.

Put more completely:
(1) MennoMedia publishes periodicals and curriculum (under its name, MennoMedia) and trade books (under its imprint, Herald Press).
(2) MennoMedia offers Canadians its periodicals and curriculum via its new website www.mennomedia.ca or 1-800-245-7894.
(3) CommonWord retails (and provides for loan) all Herald Press trade titles at www.commonword.cainfo@commonword.ca or 1-877-846-1593.   
(4) Pre-orders of special publications, like Voices Together hymnal, are handled by MennoMedia.  After its publication next fall, CommonWord will have copies for sale (and loan).
