annual Circles of Love Banquet a success!
Special thanks to....
Rex Brake, Sheila S. Yoder, Peter and
Mary Graber, Milt Stoltzfus, and Frances Ringenberg for sharing your
stories, educating and inspiring us to foster greater inclusivity.
Thanks to Prairie Street Mennonite Church of Elkhart for hosting the event, and to the North Goshen and East Goshen Mennonite youth groups and sponsors for serving and cleaning up after the meal!
Pastor Rex Brake shares about the thriving Deaf Christian Fellowship at
College Mennonite Church in Goshen (ASL interpretation was provided).
Peter and Mary Graber describe how they worked with Sunnyside Mennonite Church of Elkhart
to design a 'Ceremony of Joining' for their daughter Emily who was born with an intellectual disability.
Guests at the banquet enjoyed a homemade meal and time for fellowship.
