Central Christian School in Kidron will host the 2017 Ohio Conference Annual Conference Assembly (ACA) March 24-25. “Who is my Neighbor?” will be the theme of this year’s Assembly. The theme is based on Luke 10:25-37. This year ACA will be preceded by a missional conference at Kidron Mennonite Church featuring Alan and Debra Hirsch.
Registration for ACA will begin Friday at 5:30 p.m. A worship service held in the Performing Arts Center at Central Christian will serve as both the first event of ACA, as well as the concluding event for the missional conference. Alan and Debra Hirsch will be the featured speakers for this worship service. ACA will conclude at 3 p.m. Saturday after the final business session.
In addition to the Friday evening worship service and business sessions for delegates, ACA will include a special time for prayer on Saturday morning and displays. Because this year’s Assembly will take place over a shorter time period than last year, there will be no workshops.
On Saturday morning, a Mennonite Men’s breakfast and an Ohio Mennonite Women’s breakfast will take place at the Dutch Kitchen in nearby Dalton. Lyle Troyer of Peace Mennonite Church in Elyria will be the speaker for the men’s breakfast, focusing on the topic “Under Construction.”
Dottie Hathaway of Sonnenberg Mennonite Church in Kidron will be the speaker for the women’s breakfast. Her topic will be “There’s a Hole in my Bucket,” and she will be looking at several biblical women who may or may not always have had it together.
Registration fees for ACA are $30 per person if received by March 3 and $45 per person after that date.
