325 attend dedication of new office buildingby The Mennonite staff
On April 14, about 325 people attended a dedication service and open house at Mennonite Church USA’s new office building in Elkhart, Ind.
The service began in the Sermon on the Mount Chapel next door on the Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary campus. A procession across campus to the new building followed the service. Each wing of the building had a ribbon-cutting, and then Mennonite Church USA leaders stepped outside for the front-door ribbon-cutting.
