Times of Prayer and Fasting for Ohio Conference’s Year of Review and the MC USA Delegate Assembly

As we have recently begun our Year of Review working with a process consultant and with the upcoming Mennonite Church USA Delegate Assembly scheduled for May 27-30, 2022, it is very important that we are grounded in the spiritual disciplines as we try to discern God’s will for us as a conference of Mennonite churches throughout Ohio and the surrounding states.

As a first step, on Sunday, May 22, we are inviting all of our congregations to pray for Conference ─ our leadership, credentialed ministers, Ohio Conference delegates and MC USA delegates.  We also invite all those from across Conference for whom it would not be a physical hardship, to fast from one meal sometime during the period from Monday, May 23, through Friday, May 27.

MC USA has invited participants from all congregations across the denomination to participate in times of prayer from May 27 through May 30. A prayer guide for those days developed by MC USA is available for download: 2022-Delegate-Assembly-Prayer-Guide.
