Hesston’s Drama in the Church class traveled to Kansas City March 6 to lead a worship session at the Mennonite Health Assembly Conference.
The three-day conference focused on Mennonite health organizations’ need to rethink partnerships with wider networks in order to be viable for the future while maintaining their Anabaptist identity.
Theater professor Laura Kraybill lead the worship along with her class, who presented a sketch each day about biblical figures. Each worship session provided a new theme and also included hymn singing.
Kraybill said participants appreciated the students’ leadership.
‘’Having the Drama in the Church class lead the worship sessions at the National Mennonite Health Assembly was mutually beneficial, Kraybill said. “It was good experience for students to lead worship and be involved in a larger Mennonite network, and it seemed energizing for the assembly to have leadership from a creative group of young students.”
