For our upcoming 2017-18 academic school year, ACRS program planning committee anticipates another year of programs that will continue to stimulate and inform. Our goal is to present:

  • A series of stories on pivotal experiences which altered directions or generated significant change in the Mennonite Church.
  • Each story is told from the perspective of an individual whose vision and creativity provide a context for reflection.

When and where

ACRS breakfast regular gatherings occur the second Monday of each month from 7:30 – 9:00 a.m. in the West Dining Room, Northlawn, EMU. Your Committee: Terry Burkhalter, Margaret Foth, & Vernon E. Jantzi
