This adorable, and very formal, group is the “graduating class” of the Steinmann Mennonite Church Kindergarten in Baden, Ont., in 1964. The Kindergarten was started in 1962 by the married couples fellowship at Steinmann. Enrolment in the first year was 23; by 1964, it was 58. Groups for young couples, youth and children flourished in the post-war years as larger Mennonite congregations shaped their programs around the baby boom generation. What role has demographics played in your congregation’s history?
