9:30am: NEW! Sunday School Shorts! Join us as we explore the experiences and journeys of Neurodivergent folks in the church. We will discuss definitions, share stories, read scripture, and talk about ways to support, care for, and empower Neurodivergent people. Our 3-week class will be structured similarly to three stages that Neurodivergent folks can go through when coming to accept their unique way of being in the world and coming to understand the ways that they have been blessed by God. In each stage we will consider how Psalm 139:1-18 can speak to, empower, and comfort us. Meet in the Choir Room downstairs.

FMC Wellness GUIDELINES

March 19, 2023

Masks are no longer required at FMC.

FMC remains a mask-friendly environment. Masks remain one of the most effective ways to protect yourself and others from respiratory illnesses and will continue to be made available. We ask that you be understanding and respectful of one another's needs. 

Congregational consultation feedback and review of national and regional COVID trends and policies were taken into consideration when drafting these wellness guidelines.  Continued congregational feedback is always welcome as these guidelines will be reassessed as needed.

  • Stay home if you are sick with or have symptoms of a communicable (contagious) illness and join us via Zoom as all our services remain hybrid.
  • The window section of the sanctuary is available to those preferring higher levels of precautions (i.e. physical distancing and masking).
  • Masks are required when visiting the office during business hours.
  • Groups are encouraged to have food served by a limited number of individuals where practical and to practice good hygiene (wash hands and/or use sanitizer).

Why First
Mennonite Church?

Worship and Christian Education

As a church, the acts of worship and education are central to who we are. In worship we gather together to nurture our relationship with God as a community of faith. Through education we learn more about God, about what it means to live in proper relationship with God, and are encouraged to enhance our understanding of what it means to follow Christ in our lives. 

Community Life

We live in a society of fragmented relationships and conflicting demands on our time and other resources. In such a society, the building of a sense of community among church participants requires focused attention. We recognize the need for the continual development of our church family through personal interaction, shared experiences, mutual support, careful discussion of issues, and the development of a common story (identity).

Service and Outreach

As a community of faith we believe that we are sent into the world to serve and reach out to others. As a Mennonite church, we have a strong history as a people of peace and of serving and reaching out to others internationally, nationally, and in our local community. We recognize that we are called as individuals, as a local church, and as a broader Mennonite and Church community.

For no one can lay any foundation other than the one that has been laid; that foundation is Jesus Christ

1 Corinthians 3:11
