2021 Conference Sunday

Indiana-Michigan Mennonite Conference warmly invites your congregation to participate in Indiana-Michigan Mennonite Conference Sunday on February 14, 2020.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF CONFERENCE SUNDAY?

  • Engage the story of Indiana-Michigan Mennonite Conference (IMMC), a story that has contributed to our identity as fellowshipping congregations
  • Celebrate and give thanks for God’s faithfulness to our community of congregations
  • Increase awareness of and appreciation for the congregations–people, pastors, locations–that make up IMMC
  • Deepen a sense of connection to other congregations in one’s own region
  • Broaden our sense of identity as a Mennonite follower of Jesus beyond the local congregation

One of the core understandings of the church for us as Mennonites is that the church is a community. We commit ourselves to following Christ, and we commit ourselves to each other in the community of faith. We invite you to help your congregation live into its commitment to the larger community of faith and to begin that by getting better acquainted.

Worship Resources

Below are a few resources to aid in your worship planning. Feel free to use as many or as few as you see fit.

Youth and Family Resources

This resource was created Sharon Yoder. It is a series of eight lessons to be used in your homes or in children’s worship. It is best suited for kids between preschool and 2nd grade, but is easily adaptable for older kids. 

Feel free to adapt these lessons to suit the needs of your congregation. Feel free to contact Sharon Yoder or the conference office if you need an workable document.
