First Mennonite sanctuary renovation starts

Congregation's services held in middle school this summer

Following today’s worship service, First Mennonite Church began the first step of  “Flooring to Flourishing,” a renovation of its sanctuary.

Volunteers moved pews from the sanctuary into the fellowship hall and several classrooms. This week, Lima Pipe Organ will remove the organ and pipes for the duration of the work.

When the project is complete near the end of summer, the sanctuary will have been painted, new carpeting and wood floors installed, larger hymnal racks underneath the pews, and a redesign of the steps in the chancel area.


Family-friendly outdoor movie Friday on Presbyterian Church lawn

Bring your lawn chairs and blankets and enjoy a free, family-friendly movie on the spacious Presbyterian church lawn.

As a nod to the vintage cars that will be cruising down Bluffton's streets that evening, freshly made popcorn will be available for only 10 cents a bag.

In the event of rain, the movie will be shown in the church sanctuary.
