We are an urban Christian congregation committed to making Mennonite traditions and beliefs relevant in the Washington, D.C. area.
Statement of Welcome
As a congregation of the Supportive Communities Network, Hyattsville Mennonite Church welcomes into our life and our ministry all who are earnestly seeking God. We strive to offer a safe and open space to offer praise, seek healing, nurture spiritual growth and explore and live out the call to discipleship.
Through the Holy Spirit, Christ calls us into a fuller communion with each other, so that we are strangers no more but members in the household of God. It is our desire that our faith community should be as diverse and complete as God’s creation, reflecting the face of God.
We recognize that our world is a broken place, where divisions of economic and social status, sexuality, gender, race, ethnicity, culture, education, age, mental and physical health, and religion create false borders between God’s children.
As we follow Jesus, we work to break down these divisions and borders, opening ourselves to those who are often marginalized by the Church and society, including all those who have been excluded because of sexual orientation or gender identity.
No matter where you are on the journey and no matter who you are on the journey, God has named each of us “beloved,” offering abundant grace to all who seek truth and righteousness. Come join us on the journey.
