ADULT CHRISTIAN EDUCATION
Breslau Mennonite Church adult Christian education (or ACE) is committed to stimulating conversations about issues that matter to congregants and to the community locally and globally. We recognize that the whole of life is territory to explore for those with an interest in how to live a more spiritually aware life.
In January 2020, ACE introduced the work of some European Mennonites who have initiated a project entitled “Daring! The Anabaptist Movement, 1525–2025”. A different theme for each of the next 5 years will lead us to the 500th anniversary of the Anabaptist movement. The theme for 2020 is “Daring to live maturely: Baptism, Freedom of Religion, Freedom of the Will”. The theme for 2021 is “Daring to live together: Equality—Responsibility—Autonomy. More information about the project can be found at: http://www.taeuferbewegung2025.de/en/intro
