Questions We are Often Asked

Q. What is a Mennonite Church?
A. Mennonites are Christians who are committed to following Jesus Chirst, integrating what they learn from Jesus into all areas of life. This includes spreading the god news that our sins are forgiven and we can have a relationship with God, working for justice and peace, serving others, giving generously, living simply, and loving one's neighbor. We try to live as loving sisters and brothers in our church communities.
Q. What is North Suburban's vision for growth?
A. We are intentional about developing small and well connected communities of believers that do not exceed 150 persons. When we approach that size, we will begin laying the groundwork for establishing a new worship service or a new congregation.
Q. Do you have a children's worship service separate from the adults?
A. Children are welcome in our worship services. If they become restless, there is plenty of room at the back and sides of our gathering where they might sit at a table to color or play quietly. We want to have an atmosphere where parents are involved in the spiritual development of their children.
Q. Why do you meet in a Civic Center?
A. Meeting in a public facility reminds us that the church is not limited to a building. Our worship space is informal yet functional. Because our facility expense is minimal, a maximum amount of money is available for the service and witness of the congregation.
For no one can lay any foundation other than the one that has been laid; that foundation is Jesus Christ.
