Frequently Asked Questions



Mennonites are part of the Christian tradition known as Anabaptists, which emerged during the Reformation in the 16th century. While often diverse in its expressions, common convictions include a desire to follow Jesus in our daily lives, life in community, peace and reconciliation, creation care, service to others, and simplicity.

In short, “Jesus is the center of our faith. Community is the center of our lives. Reconciliation is the center of our work.” (from Palmer Becker’s Anabaptist Essentials)

We are members of Ohio Conference of Mennonite Church locally and Mennonite Church USA nationally.

Most people generally park along the street.

We have a small parking lot (which doubles as our basketball court) located on the west side of our church building. This is reserved for handicap parking and for those needing to park closer to our building.

We have four different entrance options for our church building.

1) Handicap/Ramp Entry – Located on the north side of our building. This entry will bring you into the front of our sanctuary.

2) Front Doors – Located on the south side of our building. This entry will bring you into the back of our sanctuary. Generally, this is where you will find a greeter.

3) Basketball Court Door – Located on the west side of our building, off of the basketball court/parking lot. This will bring you into our Fellowship Hall (located in our basement). A staircase is located on the east side which will bring you up to our sanctuary.

4) East Side Door – Located on the east side of our building. This entry gives you the option to go up a few steps into our sanctuary or down a few steps into our Fellowship Hall.

Our adult Sunday School class meets in the Lighthouse, which is located just west of our church building (across the driveway).

We have a handicap accessible ramp on the north side of our building. This entry will bring you into the front of our sanctuary.

Likewise, we attempt to use a microphone anytime someone is talking.

We value the role of children and youth in our community. Because of this, children and youth participate in our Sunday worship gatherings. We think the bustle of kids adds to our time together.

However, for parents who choose it, we do have a Toddler Room staffed with volunteers in the basement for children 4 and younger. Likewise, we have a nursery in the back of our sanctuary for parents to use.

For Sunday School options, please see our Sunday Mornings page.
