History: Established in 1879, East Chestnut Street Mennonite Church was the first Mennonite congregation in downtown Lancaster. East Chestnut Street combines a sense of history and tradition with a commitment to being an inviting, engaged, and vital congregation where members are encouraged to live out their faith commitments. We are part of the Atlantic Coast Conference of Mennonite Church USA. We deeply value connections to the broader Mennonite/Anabaptist world, partnering with our sisters and brothers in witness, mission and peacemaking. We also value our relationship to the larger Christian Church. We see ourselves as grateful servants of Jesus Christ and ministers of his gospel in our neighborhood and the larger world.
