Everyone is invited to join us in worship. We welcome visitors and members regardless of age, race, gender, class, or sexual orientation.
There is a parking lot behind the church building, and street parking on our block. For handicapped visitors, there is a wheelchair ramp off of the parking lot, which leads to a stairwell chair lift.
Dress at the fellowship is generally casual, everything from shorts in the summer to jackets and ties are appropriate. There is a nursery for infants and younger children to use (if desired) during worship staffed by members of the congregation. Our worship service includes Bible reading, a sermon (sample sermon), prayer and personal sharing, a time for children, and music including songs from The Mennonite Hymnal, Sing the Journey, and Sing the Story, as well as other favorites.
After worship, stay with us for a time of conversation and coffee, followed by Christian education for both children and adults.
SLMF is a family friendly congregation, we believe children are core both to the future and the present of the church. Each week, we hold Sunday School after worship, aimed at teaching children about the Bible in a fun, safe, and spiritual environment. During worship, there is a time for children, when the Bible story is shared at a child's developmental level. We also have activity bags for parents and children to use during worship, and a nursery, staffed by congregation members. Outside of worship, there are summer play dates, a baby-sitting cooperative, and other fellowship. Each summer, we offer a weeklong Vacation Bible School for congregational and neighborhood children, with Bible study, arts and crafts, and other activities. Each winter, there is a Children's Christmas program during the worship service to help connect children to the story of Jesus. For older youth, there is a high school youth group which gathers regularly for activities, and travels to youth camps and conventions at Camp Mennohaven in Illinois and the biannual Mennonite conventions around the country.
