Regarding the Affiliation of SCMC with MC USA
to be considered at our 2023 Summer Assembly,
July 21-23 at Pleasant Valley Mennonite Church in Harper, KS.
After focused listening to the constituency of South Central Mennonite Conference (SCMC) it seems clear that the majority of SCMC congregations no longer find affiliation with Mennonite Church USA (MC USA) to be helpful, desired, or consistent with our core beliefs and practices.
Therefore, the Network Leadership Team (NLT) recommends the following:
- SCMC will begin a process of dis-associating from MC USA to be completed on or before October 31, 2024.
- SCMC will facilitate the process of finding and opting into another Anabaptist / Mennonite conference, network or organization by providing resources and assistance beginning immediately and will complete that process by October of 2024.
