Annual Meeting 2019 Preview
Workshops: Our workshops this year feature wide-ranging topics such as race in the central plains, using Matthew 18 for hard conversations, sustainable agriculture and cottage industry, preserving the Cheyenne language, singing hymns as Christian formation, talking about disabilities, and many more. Come to Annual Meeting and be enriched! See the full list of workshops here!
Delegate Sessions: In delegate sessions our congregations will be equipped to live out our Covenant of Spiritual Practices by focusing on the spiritual practice of reconciliation. We will also receive the Omaha Chin Christian Church into our fellowship, and celebrate the installation of new conference ministry staff. When workbook content becomes available, find it here.
Youth Delegates: Each congregation is invited to bring one youth delegate to be a voting member of the delegate body (and additional youth, if desired). In addition to having a voice around the tables in our delegate hall, youth will also have fun learning to know one another and our rich conference community. See more information on our Youth Delegate Fact Sheet.
Children: Childcare at Annual Meeting is always lots of fun!. Childcare will be offered at Iowa Mennonite School for children through grade 8 in the 2018-19 school year. Register your children here!
Special Events: This year, there’s lots to celebrate and even more fun to be had.

Friday afternoon: Installation of new conference ministry staff.
Friday evening: Celebrate with Tim Detweiler and David Boshart as they end their time as Conference
