MHS wishes to congratulate the following MHS members who have received Innovation Grants.
Anabaptist Disabilities Network
Anabaptist Membership Curriculum for Youth and Adults with Intellectual Disabilities
Amount Awarded: $4,000
An Anabaptist membership curriculum will be created for youth and adults with intellectual disabilities. The curriculum will include a teacher’s book and a student book. The teacher’s book will include a theological discussion of baptism and belonging in the Anabaptist church, including a discussion of alternatives when baptism does not seem like the right choice in cases where a declaration of intent is not clear. The student book will be written at a third grade level but with content that is appropriate for adults.
Mennonite Healthcare Fellowship
Trauma Resilience and Education for Mennonite Healthcare Providers: STAR Training
Amount Awarded: $1,500
