FMC Centennial Celebration

The Hutchinson Mennonite Mission

This is a picture of The Hutchinson Mennonite Mission as the church built on the corner of 4th & Cleveland was initially known. Built at a cost of $6,000, it was dedicated on March 28, 1920. With the approval of a constitution on April 9, 1922, it became the Hutchinson Mennonite Church.

First Mennonite Church of Hutchinson is excited to announce our one hundred year anniversary and we invite you to join us! We’ll be celebrating our history as well as looking forward to our future as active members in the Hutchinson community.
