Anabaptist Disabilities Network is happy to share that the Delegate Assembly of the Mennonite Church USA will deliberate on an Accessibility Resolution at a special session on May 27-30, 2022, in Kansas City, Missouri.
This resolution is almost seven years in the making, and we hope it will mark a shift in the Mennonite Church towards greater disability awareness and accessibility. The resolution states that as members of MC USA, we commit to growing as communities of grace, joy and peace without barriers so that God’s healing and hope flow through all of us to the world regardless of ability.
At the invitation of Anabaptist Disabilities Network (“ADN”), four congregations, namely, Akron
Mennonite Church, Hesston Mennonite Church, Waterford Mennonite Church, and Berkey
Avenue Mennonite Fellowship endorsed this resolution and worked in collaboration with MHS to
bring it to Mennonite Church USA in 2021.
