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 USA locally and Mennonite Church USA nationally.
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.
We value the role of children and youth in our community. Because of this, children and youth participate in much of our Sunday worship gatherings. We think the bustle of kids adds to our time together.
However, to help with their formation, we have Children's Church during our sermon and discussion time. This looks like a traditional Sunday School class. Additionally, we have a Toddler Room staffed with volunteers available for children 4 and under. Likewise, we have a nursery in the back of our sanctuary for parents to use.
For Middle School and High School students, we partner with our friends at Lighthouse Ministries. Please see their Youth Ministry Clubs page for more details.
We are committed to the safety of children and youth. We require that our volunteers go through training and complete a background check periodically. For more details, please see our Child/Youth Protection Policy.
