Sunday Mornings at First Mennonite
We gather each week to sing songs, learn from the Scriptures, and share about our weeks with one
another. Below is a highlight of what this typically looks like.
Our times of corporate worship are of deep value to our community. We spend time singing [both modern songs and hymns], learning from the Scriptures, and sharing about our weeks. Various people lead from the front because we value the different gifts, talents, and perspectives within our community.
Our gatherings consist of people of all ages. This gives us a family feel, which is important to us. Because of this, our children participate in much of our 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. Additionally, we have a Toddler Room staffed with volunteers available and a nursery in the back of our sanctuary. We are committed to the safety of children. We require that our volunteers go through training and complete a background check periodically. For more details, please see our Child/Youth Protection Policy.
God at Work
We care about what is going on in each others lives. Because of this, we take time each week to pass a microphone around our sanctuary for individuals to share about the ways God has been at work in their lives and how they would like to see God at work in their lives. Sharing is totally voluntary and optional.
We’re a casual community. We care more about what God is doing in and through our community than we do what people are wearing. ***Please note, in consideration for those who have allergies and sensitivities, we strive to be a fragrance free community. We kindly ask that all refrain from the use of perfumes and other fragrances.
Monthly Carry-In Lunch
On the third Sunday of each month, we have a carry-in lunch after worship. We believe that personal connection happens best over a meal. We invite you to bring a dish to share and join us for some good food and time together!
