Welcome!…..First Time Visitor
We are a warm, open and welcoming Mennonite faith community that finds inspiration from each other and all those that walk through our doors. The atmosphere at Community Mennonite Church of Lancaster (CMCL) is relaxed, casual and friendly. While the worship format follows a traditional structure, it leaves room for creatively experiencing God moving among us. Participants from all denominational and faith backgrounds are welcome in our worship services.
