We celebrate ways congregations responded to the call to prayer for three months following Annual Sessions. Prayer is a central practice in our renewed vision.
We thank God for the fruitful All-Teams Retreat held September 29-30. Friday evening was given to worship and scripture. On Saturday the group identified priorities for the year.
We give thanks for Jimmie Russel, a member at Fairhaven Mennonite in Fort Wayne; for the passion he had for the gospel of Christ, for the way of peace, and for the years he participated in conference leadership. His funeral was September 30. Doug Kaufman represented IMMC.
