What to Expect
At FMC we understand that visiting a new church can be intimidating, but don't worry, we won't single you out. All we ask is that you bring an open heart. Bulletins are provided to all who attend and we always put song lyrics on the screen so you won't get lost!
Each Sunday about 100 people gather for worship. We are a diverse mix of nationalities, ethnicities, and races striving to follow Christ in the way of Peace. We are represented by many persons from other Christian traditions, as well as Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, and non-religious backgrounds. In fact, nearly half of our congregation comes from a non-Mennonite background. We have all age groups attending, including young children, students, adults, and senior citizens.
Come As You Are
Not only is our congregation diverse, but so is our dress code. Please feel free to wear your preferred outfit.
Our Worship Style
On most Sundays our style of music is traditional. We have retained the Mennonite practice of singing at least some of our hymns in four parts and without instrumental accompaniment. But on the third Sunday of each month our worship and singing is led by our Praise Team which features contemporary music and a wider range of instruments. So visit us on a few different Sundays if you want to get the full range of our worship styles!
We are so excited that you're interested in FMC! For more information and resources check out the links below:
