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.
Learn more about us, our beliefs, our ministries, and our vision as a church. Join us for worship at our location in the Libertyville Civic Center. Mennonite Ministries, located at 324 Peterson Road, is open Monday-Friday, 9:00 a.m. - 12 noon, and by appointment.
In this season of Easter, we are stepping away from the liturgical texts and giving focus to the transformative passages of Scripture which we have begun to share with one another through the 12 Scriptures Project. Different preachers will share weekly, from April through June, about the Scriptures or biblical stories which have impacted their lives. Each will share their Scripture, the reason it is a meaningful text for them, as well as what God might be saying to us as a community through each text. So, give ear and listen to what God has to say to us through the gift of multiple voices in our congregation.
On Saturday, June 1, please join us for the next event in the Anabaptist Study Center series. Cliff Williams, who teaches philosophy to college students, will lead a discussion on A Few of the Seven Deadly Sins and Some Biblical Virtues. The event takes place at the Mennonite Ministries office from 9:30am to 11:30am. Read more of Cliff's edited volume on sins and virtues on his website or get more information from the flyer.
Help us partner with the Catholic Church of San Luis, Honduras in paving a playground area for the community youth. Deanna Sell worked with the church and local youth there in January and is aksing for help in funding the project, estimated at $1500. For more information, read her letter.
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.
