Sunday mornings at 9:30 am in the sanctuary for worship, singing, scripture and preaching. Fellowship and Sunday School classes for all ages follow the morning service.
Our driveway is off of Church St. in Elmira.
Near the church entrance there are designated parking spots for seniors.
There is plenty of parking beside and behind the church.
An usher will greet you and provide assistance if you need a wheelchair or an elevator.
To the right is a ramp where greeters will welcome you to Elmira Mennonite Church. Greeters can also answer any of your questions or provide you with directions.
At the top of the ramp are coat racks and the sanctuary, where we worship.
At the entrance to the sanctuary, if you would like, an usher will give you a bulletin with all of the details about the service and help you find a seat.
An accessible washroom is at the top of the ramp. Other washrooms are in the basement. In the basement, the washrooms are to the right of the main door.
The worship service usually begins with a musical prelude or some congregational singing.
We read a call to worship in the bulletin, pray, light a candle to remind us of Christ's presence, read scripture, sing, have a story for children, share our joys and concerns from the week, and hear a sermon based in the scripture that is read.
The music changes each week. Sometimes we have a worship band, piano music, a cappella singing, quartets, an accordion, violins, trumpets.
Most people exit the sanctuary at the back where the morning's speaker is available to greet people.
Then most people continue down the ramp and into the basement where, from September through May, there are refreshments and a time of fellowship.
After the refreshments, many people stay for the education hour.
There are classes for ages 2 through adult.
An usher, or any member, can help you find the right classroom for your child.
Our programs, staff and volunteers operate under the guidelines of Elmira Mennonite Church's Safe Church Policy.
