We have gathered answers to some common questions to help you navigate your experience at our church. Whether you're joining us for worship or attending Sunday school, we want you to feel comfortable and informed. If you have a question not listed below, do not hesitate to contact us to ask!
Not being a large church it is easy to find parking and a place in our auditorium to worship. We don’t have assigned seating. Between our Christian Education hour (9:30 – 10:25) and the beginning of worship (10:45 – 12:00) there is time to meet and greet others around coffee and a light snack.
We offer Sunday school for elementary, middle school, and high school-aged children. There is also an Adult Sunday School class. All classes start at 9:30 AM.
Typically, Mennonite worship services tend to look like Baptist worship services. You should expect to be greeted and welcomed into our church by an usher, leader, and/or a member of the church. During the service, you should expect to participate in congregational readings, songs of worship (both traditional and contemporary music), a children’s lesson, the reading of scripture, and a sermon or devotion. Our service starts at 10:45 AM and typically lasts until noon.
We are open to all who know Jesus or want to know Jesus and follow Him in daily life. Click here to learn more about what we believe.
Church programs or bulletins are available as you enter which give the order of the service for that morning. There are Bibles in the bench racks for you to use as you wish. Our singing is from the Hymnal or worship songs projected on a screen. We enjoy singing to our Lord and want to sing from our hearts no matter what the sound
Guests are not put on the spot, but we want to greet you informally either before or after our worship. Our pastor appreciates the opportunity to follow up with you so “Let’s Get Acquainted” cards are available to record brief contact information.
There is currently a nursery for ages 1-3 years old during the worship service. All volunteers have had up-to-date background checks.
Despite common stereotypes, no. “Mennonite” and “Amish” are not synonymous terms. Although both the Amish and Mennonites (and even Baptists!) have shared roots in the Anabaptist movement—a moment that occurred at the same time as the Protestant Reformation—the Amish and Mennonite traditions are different.
We sing praise songs from a broad range of worship materials and song genres. We have a more blended approach. Some of our song leaders lead songs from hymnals while others rely on more contemporary music all of which is projected on a screen. We are open to several types of music as long as they are honoring to our Lord and Creator.
Contemporary Mennonites stress modestly, and people here accomplish that differently. Some, for example, wear dress shirts and dress pants while others wear collared shirts and jeans. We do not require bonnets and head coverings, although you are welcome to wear those if you prefer.
