About Our Church

Our Church

Our congregation was formed in Aberdeen in 1907, and our roots here run deep. Of course, we hope to learn from the past, but our ongoing hope is to continue to cultivate life in the desert and to be renewed daily. 

First Mennonite Church is a member of the Pacific Northwest Mennonite Conference, a part of Mennonite Church USA.

Our Camp

We are incredibly blessed that since 1957 we have had a beautiful camp (lower left side of the picture) near the Wyoming border within the Targhee National Forest. It goes by the name Camp Palisades. Visit the camp website for more information.

Our Pastor

Kevin Chupp and his wife Jess are both from Indiana, and they were married there while Kevin was in seminary. Kevin is a graduate of Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary. They moved to Aberdeen in 2016 and welcomed their daughter Junia in October 2020.
