Please join us in prayer

As a spiritual practice during this time of discernment for the Ohio Conference, we are committing to pray together as a Conference.

Please join us each Wednesday at noon for a time of communal prayer on Zoom. We will be using Take Our Moments and Our Days: An Anabaptist Prayer Book as the resource for our time together. We will meet together each Wednesday through Nov. 23.

To participate in these prayer times, you may either use the prayer book or the app of the same name. To download this free app, go to

Questions are for discussion in the fall

A clarification: In the previous issue of Delegate News, the Leadership Team shared two questions for delegates to consider. Please note that we would like to discuss these questions at the fall delegate gatherings, which begin next week. As a reminder, here are the two questions:

  • What do you or members of your congregation value about Ohio Conference?
  • What options do you see for Ohio Conference as a way forward regarding future denominational affiliation?
Delegate gatherings begin next week

Fall delegate gatherings begin next week. Each meeting will run from 6 to 8:30 p.m.

Meeting dates and locations are as follows:

  • Tuesday, Sept. 20 ─ Oak Grove Mennonite Church, Smithville
