Walnut Creek Mennonite Church
The Big Brick Church at the bottom of the hill
Located just off Route 39 east of the village of Walnut Creek, Walnut Creek Mennonite Church is a friendly, welcoming community in Ohio’s Amish Country. Consider this your invitation to come worship with whenever you're in the area - everyone is welcome!
With an emphasis on outreach to the local community and across the world, our church community exists to connect all people to Jesus Christ through caring, serving, and proclaiming His love! We are evangelical Anabaptists (which means we practice “believer’s baptism”) and believe in the Bible as the Word of God. A typical Sunday service will include a sermon by our pastor, Don Hamsher, sharing of praises and prayer concerns and a variety of music that includes both Praise and Worship Music as well as traditional Mennonite four-part acapella singing.
Our church is historic and began with deep roots in the Amish community in 1862. At that time, several Amish ministers began to see the need for a central “meeting house,” rather than worshiping in homes (as is the Amish custom to this day). Times have changed since 1862 and so have we. Over the years, we have collected an extensive library of historical materials documenting the changes in the Mennonite church. Feel free to ask about genealogical searches and documents - we’ll try to help you!
Missions and Service
Service and Missions are a big part of our church life. We support several families and individuals serving in here in the United States as well as in The Congo, Central America, Papua New Guinea, the Middle East and Mongolia. Our church members often volunteer on short-term mission teams and youth ministry.
Who attends Walnut Creek Mennonite Church? We have families with young children and teenagers, middle-aged empty nesters, retired golden agers, married, singles, professionals and blue collar workers. There is a place for everyone to fit in, whatever your age or work situation.
