By following the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, we are a Mennonite church committed to community, peacemaking and compassionate service to others. We invite you to join us on our journey.
Mennonite Ministries, our church office, is located at 324 Peterson Road. The office is open Monday-Friday, 9:00 a.m. - 12 noon, and by appointment.
Pentecost is the season celebrating the Spirit being poured out upon the church. For the past 2000 years, we have sometimes succeeded and most often struggled to live as the body of Christ in the world. During Pentecost, the Book of Acts will be our focus so that we might learn the way we are called to be church in the beginning of the 21st century. All are welcome to join our worship services at 10:30am every Sunday on the main level of the Libertyville Civic Center.
Anticipation is building for the Mennonite Church USA 2015 convention in Kansas City, Missouri, June 30 - July 5, 2015. Several NSMC adults and youth will be attending what promises to be a faith formation event, where people can come together to worship, to learn, to discern, and to fellowship. Please keep our NSMC participants in your prayers. To read more about the convention, visit the convention website.
Our pastor Roland now posts copies of past sermons on his sermon blog. It's a great resource if you missed the service or want to revisit what you heard.
As a community we believe God is leading us to be involved in partnering together with First Baptist Church in Waukegan in ministering to neighborhood children. We encourage members of our community to consider in what ways the Spirit of God might be leading you to participate. The kind of commitment needed is about one (1) Wednesday night per month, from 6:30 pm - 8:45 pm. If you wish to participate or need more information, please contact Roland.
First Baptist Church is at 401 N. Genesee Street in Waukegan. Park in the church parking lot off of Sheridan Road, one street east of Genesee behind the church (see Google map).
The weekly email sent out to NSMC family, called the NSMC Weekly News, is available online. The Weekly News has announcements and current information pertaining to the activities of the congregation. The current Weekly News is available from a link on the left side of this page under Weekly News and Brochures.
iMissional.org provides resources and a forum for conversation for facilitating missional transformation in the life of the church as it seeks to participate with God in God's mission. Our pastor Roland writes regular posts called Missional Matters exploring what it means to be missional.
