1:00p  Bike, Run, Walk Fundraiser

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.

Cost is $10/adult and $7/child age 8 and under. There will be vegetarian and gluten-free options available.

Please register in advance through the adult registration form

7:30p  Worship

Place: Milwaukee Mennonite Church Sanctuary

Speaker: Anton Flores-Maisonet

Title: “God, go there?”
Scripture: John 4:4-10
Theme: Jesus had to go through Samaria. Why? Not because his GPS directed him to but because the Spirit was taking him only God knows where. We’ll look at this familiar text through a new lens. What does it mean that even Jesus gets worn out by his journey? What does it mean that Christ offers us living water when others shun us or we are consumed by shame? Our obstacles along our journey can also be gifts to know a Christ who identifies with us even in our woundedness.

9:00p  Ice Cream Social
