The Mennonite Congregation of Boston welcomes everyone, without exception.
Our services are planned and carried out by MCOB’s pastor, in close collaboration with lay leadership. Meetings typically follow one of the following formats:
- Worship service, which includes a meditation, followed by time for discussion.
- Short worship service followed by a speaker or panel on a topic of interest with time for discussion.
Following the service we have a time for refreshments and conversation. Please join us for that time to talk informally and become better acquainted.
Please contact us for more information.
“And this is my prayer, that your love may grow ever richer and richer in the knowledge and insight of every kind, and may thus bring you the gift of true discernment.” (Philippians 1:9)
The Mennonite Congregation of Boston (MCOB) was organized in 1962, following three years of “unofficial” meetings. Begun as a house church, the Congregation initially met in members’ homes and relied on lay leadership, as it largely does today. Many of our members grew up in churches outside of the Boston area and moved here for study or work.
Since 1966 the Congregation has been dually-affiliated with the Eastern District of the former General Conference Mennonite Church and what is now the Atlantic Coast Conference of the former Mennonite Church. We are still a dually-affiliated member of the area Atlantic Coast Conference of the Mennonite Church USA. While many current participants come from a Mennonite or Brethren background, others were raised in different traditions. We welcome all who join with us in worship and fellowship.
