I grew up around the Amish, and Mennonite communities. However, my family was half Protestant half, well.. Not religious. I am a 21 year old dairy farmer, and not baptized. It was always left open to me to find what I believed, and follow that. I've always looked in to the Mennonite religion, with strong desire to learn more. However where I live now, there are no close-by Mennonite churches. I agree strongly with the way things are viewed in this religion and I'd like to follow the church as well as the lifestyle. I believe it's time. And its something I take seriously. My question is, would I be welcomed as a visitor in a Mennonite church? And if so, could I become a member if I truly decided that's what I want?

  • Why don't you just ask the closest Mennonite church to you? – curiousdannii Oct 24 '14 at 0:37

    Welcome to the site, Alyson. Would you say that you question is, basically, what is required to become a member of the Mennonite church? – fгedsbend Oct 24 '14 at 3:40

    @fredsbend There may not be one close to them, but there will always be a closest one! – curiousdannii Oct 24 '14 at 4:21

    I've been attending Mennonite churches most of my life, and I've never been to one that wouldn't welcome you, or anyone else. But the same can be said of most other denominations as well... and even so, there are likely exceptions. Your best bet is to go to a church (Mennonite or otherwise) and see if you feel welcome. If you don't, try another church. – Flimzy Oct 24 '14 at 16:21

    Is this question really too broad if so why? – Reluctant_Linux_User Oct 26 '14 at 2:10
