Faith Mennonite church embraces as a gift the diversity of our community and our world.
All are welcome.
The tithes and donations you make to Faith Mennonite Church make a difference to our church, our community, and the people of Newton. There are various ways you can donate. We collect an offering on Sundays in a box at the back of the sanctuary, and electronic giving is available for 24/7 donations. Also, most banking institutions offer their customers online banking bill pay in which they will print and mail a check to us as a free service.

An Inclusive Community
As a historic peace church, Faith Mennonite Church is called to resist injustice in all forms and in all
places. We embrace as a gift the diversity of our community and our world. We celebrate our human
family’s diversity of sexual orientation, gender identity, race, ethnicity, age, faith history, economic
status, marital status, physical and mental ability, and education.
We affirm that all people are created in the image of God, and as beloved children of God, all are worthy
of God’s love and grace. We welcome the full inclusion of all people in the life and ministries of Faith
Mennonite Church as we journey toward reconciliation through Christ.
We recognize that there are differences among us but believe that we can love alike even though we
may not think alike. We proclaim this statement of welcome to all who have known the pain of
exclusion or discrimination in the church and society. We commit ourselves to making justice and
inclusivity a reality in this congregation and in the world. We invite all people to join us in our faith
journey toward greater love, understanding, mutual respect and reconciliation.
"This hand is a gentle hand. It receives and it gives. It heals and it assists. It reaches out to the neighborhood."
