What to Expect:
Although the First Mennonite Church building itself is stunning and formal, you’ll find the people inside comfortable and relaxed. Greeters stand inside the doors before Sunday School at 9:00 each Sunday morning, and before the church service at 10:00. They can direct you to a Sunday School class, the sanctuary, or help you find someone. On Wednesday evenings, most of the activity takes place downstairs in the church patio. You’ll most likely find others visiting in the foyers who would also be glad to help you find your place at First Mennonite.
What to Wear:
Sunday mornings find most people at First Mennonite in slacks or jeans. Many people attending could be classified as “business casual” in their style of dress. Wednesday evening attendees dress informally and certainly would invite you to “come as you are.”
First Mennonite Church prides itself in excellent music. On most Sundays, the service includes hymns as well as praise and worship style songs. Instruments, handbells and the church organ are often a part of the Sunday morning music.
Where Do We Go:
First Mennonite Church is blessed with a rich history, therefore, there are many entrances to our old magnificent building! The sanctuary is located on the north end of the building with doors entering on every side. The sanctuary is the main hub on Sunday mornings. Sunday school classes are mainly held in small classrooms in the downstairs of the church. There are maps posted on various bulletin boards with names and locations of each class. Greeters at the Welcome Center near the sanctuary will be happy to welcome you and help you find your way. The activities on Wednesday evenings are mainly on the lower level as well.
Coffee & Donuts
Every Sunday Morning, HeBrews Coffee serves delicious coffee drinks and offers donuts as well. Enjoy a cup of coffee in the new coffee area located on the upper level close to the new East entrance.
