Summer 2018 – “The Stories that Shaped Us”

During the months of July and August we will meet in the fellowship hall for our worship hour. We will center around the theme of Biblical stories that have shaped us. As Christians, we have been shaped by the stories from the Bible. But not all stories have been positive for us, and we’ll look at some of the stories that we’ve struggled with too. As we talk together, expect that you’ll be invited to reflect on your own ongoing story and how the biblical stories have, and continue to shape you. So come! The worship is more informal, and our fellowship hall is air-conditioned!

What can I expect when I come to visit?

You might wonder what to expect when coming to a worship service at our church. These Questions and Answers may help you feel more comfortable so you can enter into the worship of God.

Q – What happens when someone visits for the first time?

A – You will be warmly and personally greeted. We will not introduce you during the service so as not to put you on the spot. We’d like you to sign our guest book so we can be in touch with you.

Q – What should I wear?

A – Most persons are dressed in casual clothes. Jeans and shorts are OK, as are ties and skirts. The majority of persons are somewhere in the middle.

Q – What’s your worship service like?

A – You might say we are “structured yet casual”. You can count on a Biblical emphasis, a lot of congregational participation, and relevant themes. We work hard at being “visitor-friendly” when matters pertaining to the Mennonite church are introduced. We love to sing. Preaching is centered in scripture. We have a time for sharing and we provide a coffee time following the service.

Q – Do I have to be a Mennonite to visit, or become involved at Perkasie Mennonite Church?

A – Not at all. Some of us are not life-long Mennonites, some of us are. It doesn’t matter. You can read more about our history.

Q – How do you follow up with visitors?

A – We will contact you to thank you for visiting. After that, we’ll take our cues from you. We neither want to smother you with unwanted attention, nor ignore you.

After you worship with us we’d love to hear from you. Let us know about your experience. We learn and grow through experience.
