Affiliation

Hyattsville Mennonite Church (HMC) shares in the faith, fellowship, and labors of the Anabaptist tradition through memberships in Allegheny Mennonite Conference (AMC) and in the Mennonite Church USA (MCUSA). Our church governance is congregationally based, which means that we accept the authority and responsibility given to those assembled “in the name of Christ,” as described in Matthew 18.

On Nov. 5, 2005, AMC delegates voted to discipline HMC for its practice of receiving into membership LGBTQIA+ Christians in committed relationships.

On March 7, 2015, HMC was restored to full membership in AMC by a 72-70 vote of the delegates. For a fuller picture of that process, see this article on The Atlantic magazine’s website.
