"You will be for me a kingdom

of priests and a holy nation."

Exodus 19:6a
Rooted in the Anabaptist movement, at Hutterthal Mennonite Church, we believe that community is central to faith in Jesus Christ. We are called to come alongside one another in mutual support, accountability and love. Thus, we affirm that we are called to be in relationship not only with Jesus Christ, but through Jesus Christ we are to be in relationship with one another and our larger community both as salt and as light. In this way, our faith is not simply an intellectual pursuit, but a life that is lived as well as a love that is expressed.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
The HMC Prayer Shawl Ministry was organized in January of 2006 to knit and crochet shawls not only for those who are going through a difficult time, but also celebratory events:
  • illness
  • death loss
  • discouragement
  • new baby
  • baptism

The shawls are prayed over individually as we make them and also as a group upon completion. We welcome our church family to request shawls for anyone they feel needs this encouragement and support. We rely on donations for yarn.
