Lent 2020 “Show Us”
Join us for worship in this season of Lent, leading up to Easter. This year’s theme is “Show Us.” We ask God to “show us” what it means to live a life faithful to the Christian calling. “Show us” what it means to live lives of compassion and empathy. “Show us” what it means to live out Jesus teaching. “Show us” what it means to work for justice for all God’s people. We are also invited to show others what a life of faith looks like by our words and our actions. So come and reflect with us on the love of Jesus, who “shows us” the extent of his sacrificial love.
March 1- Lent 1 – “God, show us how to be fully human” Wayne Nitzsche, preaching. “Stay human.”

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.
