Who Are The Mennonites?
This short video produced by Third Way Cafe is a great introduction to the many varieties of people who consider themselves Mennonites.
We meet every Sunday at 11:00 a.m. for worship (10:30 a.m. in July through Labour Day). We value our worship services, where people of all ages can feel at home and draw closer to God. Scripture readings, prayer, sharing joys and concerns and collecting an offering are always included. Music takes many forms, with hymns from a variety of worship traditions, both North American and international. We encourage participation of children, young people and adults in various elements of the service. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper four or five times a year.
Christian education is very important in nurturing faith. Children and youth and adults meet at 10:00 a.m. on Sundays for Sunday school from September to June. Sunday school involves learning about the Bible in interactive ways.
As a congregation we are committed to supporting mission and service programs through Mennonite Church Canada and Mennonite Central Committee. We support Christian Peacemaker Teams and a local Youth for Christ youth centre. We hold regular collections for groceries for our local Community Care foodbank. As a congregation we have sponsored a number of refugee families over the past decades, from Laos, Bosnia and, most recently, from Colombia. A number of senior women meet to quilt every Monday, making blankets for people in need.
We support the following organizations through general and designated offerings and/or with our time:
