We learn together
We worship and learn together on Sundays, but it doesn’t stop there. Through education, outreach, small group gatherings, social activities and more, community at LMC is a seven-days-a-week affair.
Our Pastoral Care Team helps facilitate mutual care and support of one another. Our Small Group program is one of the best ways for individuals to get connected at LMC through Bible study, prayer, and fellowship. Our numerous activities—such as potluck meals and our annual church retreat—give us space and time to strengthen relationships.

Sundays: We use a variety of interactive methods to stimulate reflection on Anabaptist values and basic Christian beliefs. Young or old, guest or regular attendee, we warmly invite you to participate in one of our Sunday school classes.
Children: At the conclusion of the worship service, kids meet for Gathering Time (a large group opening meeting). Preschool children meet in classroom #5 upstairs; Kindergarten through 5th grade meet in the downstairs library. Sunday school teachers escort the children to their classrooms from there.
Adults: Talking Across the Political Divide in America (Sanctuary), Mennonite Understanding of the Christian Faith (Conference Room)
Wednesdays: All are welcome at our weekly Bible study at 7 PM.
We love our youth at LMC. Through activities, service projects, winter retreats, and weekly Sunday school classes, our youth learn and explore what it means to be a follower of Christ, build relationships, and work out how peacemaking and other Anabaptist values apply to their daily lives. And they have a lot of fun in the process!
Our middle school group is called the Venture Club. Our high school group is called the MYF (it stands for Mennonite Youth Fellowship, but we’re never that formal). We also have a Mentor/Mentee program, where students turning 12 can choose adult mentors from the congregation.
Pastor Hillary oversees our youth ministry and is happy to provide more information.
Women of the Word
Our Women of the Word Bible study (WOW), meets on Wednesday mornings from 9:30-11:30 AM in the conference room. Join us for a time of fellowship and friendship, study and growth, and sharing and prayer.
WOW is an intergenerational group, and all women are welcome to join us. Childcare is provided.
We financially support a number of local organizations that provide food, job training, housing assistance, and service programs to the less fortunate. We also support the following:
Every other month, we partner with Harvest Bible Chapel to host an overnight shelter site for our homeless brothers and sisters through DuPage PADS (Public Action to Deliver Shelter). Get involved here.
MCC responds to basic human needs and works for peace and justice around the world. We participate in their work with annual relief and school kit drives, making comforters, fundraisers and more.
This fair trade store in Glen Ellyn (which we helped start in the late 80s), provides vital and fair income to people around the world. The store is located at 503 Pennsylvania Ave, Glen Ellyn. Both shoppers and volunteers are welcome!
This camp in Tiskilwa, IL, has a special place in our hearts. We hold our annual church retreat there, many of our children and youth have attended or worked at the camp, and our youth groups travel there a couple of times a year.
