The Central District Conference asked us to post this announcement on the Young Anabaptist Radicals blog. For those of you who are part of the Mennonite church and live in the area it looks like a good opportunity to share your perspective on faith and the church:
Central District Conference (CDC) is one of the 21 area conferences of Mennonite Church USA with most of our congregations concentrated in the Mid States. Some of the committees of the conference are meeting soon at Camp Friedenswald and we’d like to hear from 20-30 somethings about your dreams for the future of the church.
Can you come?
We invite you to Camp Friedenswald for coffee and conversation on Friday, April 20 from 6:30 to 8:30 PM. We want to hear your views about the church (congregation, conference, and denomination). What about the church do you find relevant (or not) to your life? What are your ideas for the direction you think the church should take? These questions — and the ones you bring — will help guide our conversation.
Think you can come? Please call or email Emma Hartman in the CDC office by April 17 to let us know you can join us. Or if you have other questions, contact Emma at 800-662-2264, 574-534-1485 or firstname.lastname@example.org. She’s good at answering them!
