Westfield Republican

Family Church Mayville is excited to announce its upcoming move to 65 W. Lake Road in Mayville. Services will be held in the new church building in May, just two years after Family Church Mayville was launched.

Pastors Jeff and Renee Mitchener invite everyone to join Family Church Mayville for its grand opening and two-year anniversary celebration service on Sunday, May 1, at 10:30 a.m. Services begin with a time of contemporary worship, followed by an inspired lesson from the Bible. Afterward, there will be refreshments served in the church lobby.

Family Church Mayville is part of a growing network of Family Churches, one of 10 in the region. They are nondenominational Bible-based churches with the mission of bringing the gospel to the people - teaching of the many promises God has for humanity.

This is Family Church Mayville’s new building, located at 65 W. Lake Road in Mayville.

Family Church began in Fredonia under the leadership of the Rev. Michael Lokietek. In 2003, Family Church Fredonia launched its first satellite church in Jamestown. After a year, the church was incorporated and is today one of the largest churches in the Jamestown area.

In 2013, Family Church International became a formally-incorporated organization. Family Church Mayville, along with several other Family Churches, have been successfully planted in the surrounding areas, including South Dayton, Warren, Olean, Northeast, Tonawanda, Wellsville, and Erie.

Family Church Mayville was launched in April 2014 from the Jamestown Family Church, under Senior Pastor Tim Stahlman. Leading Family Church Mayville are pastors Jeff and Renee Mitchener. Family Church Mayville began holding services in the conference center of the Chautauqua Suites Hotel and Expo Center.

Shortly thereafter, in August 2015, the growing church began leasing a space at 32 S. Erie St., but hoped to acquire a building of its own in the future. Family Church Mayville was incorporated in its first year and has seen continual growth in both congregation size and in the individual lives represented.

The property at 65 W. Lake Road in Mayville was formerly a convenient store and then a specialty, home goods store before being purchased by Family Church Mayville. The building has seen a complete overhaul and has been entirely re-figured to house church services and fellowship.

Pastors Jeff and Renee Mitchener welcome anyone interested in learning more about the Bible and anyone looking to discover His goodness.

"I believe very strongly in the message that is taught at Family Church because it changed my life," said Pastor Jeff. The Revs. Mitchener, along with their three children Mark, Caleb and Ezra, have been members at Family Church for more than 10 years.

"It is the uncompromised true Bible teaching that has made the difference in our lives. It is the practical, daily application of the Scripture that has helped us to live better, to raise our children successfully, and to find peace and joy throughout all the circumstances of life," said Pastor Renee.

Family Church is built on the belief that the Word of God builds faith, and is life changing. The Mayville church has seen health restored in bodies, people breaking free from depression, marriages and relationships restored, and people once in poverty finding all their needs met.

"It's not through man's wisdom, but we stick to Scripture and I've seen it change lives," said Pastor Jeff.
