Church Profile
Raleigh Mennonite Church is an historic peace-church that seeks to make disciples through intergenerational spiritual formation as we encounter God together through worship, the Bible, and one another.

As a Christian community, called to peacemaking and reconciliation, we affirm that people of any racial or ethnic identity, sexual orientation, gender identity, ability, age, or economic status are welcome to full participation in our congregation.

Currently, approximately 50-60 people attend most Sundays, including 8-12 children, ranging in age from 4-17, with more at the lower age range.
