About Rochester Mennonite Church

Rochester Mennonite Church is a congregation affiliated with the Central Plains Mennonite Conference of Mennonite Church USA. We are a Historic Peace Church (includes Mennonites, Church of the Brethren and Religious Society of Friends/Quakers) with a 480-year tradition of peace living and peacemaking. We value our Anabaptist heritage, and seek to live it in our daily lives. Our mission as a church, being part of the body of Jesus Christ, is to witness to God's love and grace through living out our Anabaptist vision in worship, ministry, and service within our church, community and world. As stated in our Church Covenant: We recognize that being a disciple of Christ is an ongoing journey of transformation that we will undergo together as a community of faith.
