Our Heritage

group

Our congregation was organized in 1760. We have a rich heritage! Our spiritual roots run deep in the Anabaptist Mennonite stream of faith flowing from the sixteenth century Reformation. Previous generations lived and died for their faith as an historic peace church emphasizing Christ’s teachings and example of love, outreach, and non-violence.

Although religious tradition does not define us, we seek to “honor our fathers and mothers” of the Anabaptist Mennonite heritage who sought to live in obedience to the teachings of Christ. We embrace in faith the “first commandment with promise” so it can “go well for us.” (Exodus 20:12).

We are delighted that the Mennonite church includes persons with roots in other faith traditions, and persons new to faith. We are enriched by the insights each person brings to our walk of faith.

Our congregational history includes building strong families, planting numerous churches, sending mission workers around the world, and starting relevant ministries. Local ministries with roots in this congregation (with others) include
a Christian School, Camp, Retirement Community, and Re Uzit Shop.

More recently our ministries have expanded to hosting a home school group, the Twin Valley Food Pantry, and seminary classes.

From children to adults, we seek to train and prepare individuals to live the story of Jesus in word and deed.
