Our History, Our Present, Our Future
"Mennonites share essential core beliefs with Christians of. . . Protestant, and Evangelical persuasions. We emphasize the connections between faith, words, and actions. We believe baptism and church membership should be voluntary".*
Our Mennonite origins go back to 16th century Europe and the early years following the Protestant Reformation. A Dutch priest Menno Simons and others (the majority in Switzerland) believed that the Reformation needed to go further. In an age filled with religious violence, they provided an example of peacemaking that was costly for some.
For over a century the congregation has provided worship services, Christian education, mission and service to the local community and world community. We celebrated our 100th anniversary in 2015.
We aim to build upon this heritage of faith in God and faithful living. Our mission statement "Serving Christ and Community" defines our direction. The beautiful stained glass window in the sanctuary depicting Christ with his arms outspread represents what we are about. We aim to be a community where people are embraced by the love of God and leave better prepared for life and service. We welcome all who come in faith, and who
come to seek.
