Read the March 2016 Reporter from the Central District Conference and you’ll see references to solar panels, rain gardens, a blue heron rookery, a sandhill crane and an endangered butterfly. The theme of the issue is creation care, and two of the congregations featured are MCCN members—Emmaus Road Mennonite Church, Berne, Ind., and the Mennonite Church of Normal, Normal, Ill. Mennonite Church USA’s Central District Conference includes congregations from Illinois in the west to Florida in the southeast.
