Welcome to FMC!

In response to God’s unconditional love for all people, we joyfully and unconditionally welcome you to join us on our journey of faith in Jesus Christ. We are committed to breaking down dividing walls and building community where all are loved and accepted. We believe in active inclusion and invite each one to participate in the life and ministry of our congregation.

Policies of Inclusion

Membership

First Mennonite Church welcomes into membership all LGBTQ individuals who confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who are committed to following Mennonite principles, and who are prepared to share in the life and work of the congregation, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity and including those in same-sex relationships of fidelity.

 

Marriage

First Mennonite Church affirms the biblical marriage covenant to apply to two people in a same-sex relationship of fidelity and offers to such unions and their families the pastoral care, church ceremonies, and accountability by which the church supports marriage covenants and family life.

 

Ministry

First Mennonite Church fully accepts the gifts of ministry and leadership offered by LGBTQ people in the church, including at every level of employment and pastoral leadership.
