Committees

Eastern District and Franconia Conference share two committees focused on ministry that is vital to both conferences and our shared Mennonite heritage and Anabaptist roots. For more information on the two committees click the links below.

  • Sistering Committee: provides gatherings for women to share about their lives and sister one another. The term “sistering” refers to a practice in carpentry in which structural repairs are made by attaching new wood beams to weak (sagging, cracked or twisted) joists to make the original stronger.
  • Peace & Justice Committee: organizes events around issues of peace and justice such as the annual peace retreat, and offers resources including a speakers bureau and trainings.
