Ebenfeld to host drama on Simons

The public is invited to a dramatic performance by Julia Reimer, Fresno Pacific University associate professor of theater, at 9:45 a.m. Sunday, June 1, at Ebenfeld MB Church, 1498 Kanza Road.

Reimer will perform as Gertrude Simons, wife of Menno Simons, an early Anabaptist leader whose followers became known as Mennonites.

Reimer wrote this solo performance for the 150th anniversary of the Menno?nite Brethren Church in 2010 and has presented it in a variety of settings in the United States and Canada.

Historians know little about Gertrude Simons, so Reimer based her script on accounts of other Ana?baptist women that are found in court documents, martyr songs and the 17th century ?Martyr?s Mirror? as well as the writings of Menno Simons.

For more information, call the Ebenfeld MB Church office at 620-947-3871.
