Do you like to bike, run, or walk? We have lovely trails in the area, and invite you to explore them before the conference, while raising funds for CDC’s Leadership Development Fund. The Hank Aaron Trail is near the Milwaukee Mennonite Church. Named in honor of baseball legend Hank Aaron, this 12 mile trail provides a continuous connection between Milwaukee’s Miller Park Stadium and the Lake Michigan lakefront, as well as providing connections to famous Milwaukee landmarks such as the historic Ward Theatre on the grounds of the Historic Soldiers Home, the Wisconsin State Fair Park and the Pettit National Ice Center.

3:00 – 4:30p Spiritual Practices for the Journey
Presenter: Mary Etta King. Meets in the sanctuary
Our journey with God is sustained by regularly practicing spiritual disciplines. In this seminar we will explore what it takes to stay the course. Anita Amstutz’s book, Soul Tending: A Journey into the Heart of Sabbath will be one resource to guide our conversation. We will also practice silence and contemplation on a scriptural passage. Music will help to motivate and inspire us. Come join the conversation.
Mary Etta King is co-pastor at Covenant Mennonite Fellowship in Sarasota, Florida.
5:00p Backyard Picnic
A welcome picnic will be held from 5:00 to 6:30 at Milwaukee Mennonite Church in the fellowship hall on Thursday evening. We encourage everyone to join us for a time of fellowship before the evening service. You may eat in the fellowship hall or carry your food outside, weather permitting.
