On Sunday, April 10, Peace Mennonite Church in Elyria held its last service as Peace Mennonite. Over the past several months its members have gone through a discernment process that led the congregation to merge with North Olmsted Evangelical Friends Church. Peace Mennonite’s Church building will become the Elyria campus of North Olmsted Evangelical Friends Church.

Conference Minister Dick Barrett was present April 10 to help celebrate Peace Mennonite’s last worship service and to offer a blessing on behalf of Ohio Conference as they begin the next stage of their journey together. Plans are in the works for a Sunday gathering in early summer to give thanks to Pastor George Dunn and his wife, Mary, for their service to the congregation over the past several years.
