Welcome to Richmond Mennonite Fellowship. This is an invitation to get to know a little bit about us. We hope what you learn encourages you to join us for Sunday morning worship, a potluck or ….
We gather the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Sundays of each month at 10:00 a.m. for worship, reflection, and sharing. We currently meet in each other’s homes, so if you would like to join us, please e-mail us for the current location.
As you can see from the flow chart below, we do not want to be a typical congregation. We meet together in order to deepen our faith, our understanding of the world and ourselves so that we can live out our faith in action. From the beginning of our history we have been committed to meeting together in order to strengthen our lives for service. We gather together in order to think together what it means to be an “historic peace church” in the former capital of the south, in the heart of an empire.
One of the most distinctive parts of our worship services is our commitment to participation. Worship leaders and music leaders come from within our congregation to lead the services. We share our joys and concerns before we pray. Our services are informal and based on a short meditation and open reflection and sharing. While we are not formally a part of a larger Mennonite conference, we affirm the heritage of the Mennonite Church as a church committed to peace, justice, and the idea that all carry within us the spark of the divine which enables us to have a direct relationship with God and the ability to share our knowledge of God with each other.
A community . . .
committed to peace, engaged in justice, cultivating faith
