First Mennonite is in the midst of a 3 year "experiment" with a new church structure, as described below. The structure is based on our shared priorities: DEEPENING, STRENGTHENING, AND STRETCHING. The desire is to provide flexible and creative ways for each member and participant at FMC to to discover and share their gifts within and beyond our congregation.
