MennoCon19 is going to be an exciting combination of faith formation, equipping times and fun with friends! Some elements will feel familiar to those that have attended conventions in the past. Other elements will provide new opportunities for everyone.
Worship services will be a time of coming together to worship God. We will combine youth and adults for worship this convention. Morning services will last one hour, while evening services will last 90 minutes. Music will fill the space with thousands singing together. Speakers will bring the scripture alive in new and exciting ways.
New Equipping sessions offer a unique spin on seminars. We are designing these to equip our participants with “something to take home” like knowledge, skills, certifications and valuable resources that are useful in personal, congregational and conference settings. We are also increasing the time for these sessions to 90 minutes to allow for deeper engagement.
On Thursday evening, July 4, we will have limited programming in the convention center, including a Mennonite Concerto and a hymn sing. This is also a chance for convention participants to get out and experience Kansas City. Some might choose to go to Top Golf or other local attraction. Some might choose to gather friends or family for dinner at one of the downtown restaurants. Some might choose to enjoy a quiet evening in the hotel.
