Description: We are a diverse, energetic urban congregation committed to Christian Anabaptist faith. You are welcome to join us in vibrant worship, study for all ages that deepens understanding and warm fellowship. There is nursery care available for young children and interpretation between English, Swahili and Spanish available. We average around 70 in worship in the summer and over 100 in the winter. Our congregational missions focus on social justice action, immigrant care and justice, creation care, and radical welcome. We are members of the Sanctuary Movement as a supporting congregation. As a congregation that is open and affirming of the LGBTQ community within and beyond ourselves, we are also members of BMC’s Supportive Communities Network. We partner closely with Mennonite Mission Network through a Mennonite Voluntary Service unit and shorter term winter volunteers through SOOP. We are also closely involved with the Casa Mariposa Detention Visitation Group and Community Home Repair Projects of Arizona. And we treasure our sister church, Teusaquillo Mennonite Church of Bogota, Colombia. Shalom Mennonite Fellowship welcomes you. You are welcome. No matter if you are plain or fancy, confident or questioning, whole or in pieces, you are welcome. Whether we see you every Sunday, for a season, or on sweet rare occasions, you are welcome. Whatever your identities, in age, race, abilities, sexual orientation, gender, immigration status… you are welcome as member, worshipper, participant, observer, leader... There are so many ways to be part of this community that no one can or should do them all. You may roll through the doorway, dance up an aisle, slide quietly into a back seat, dive into fellowship, engage earnestly in meetings, feast at potluck, delight in learnings, dig into work for immigration justice, peace and earth-care... We invite you to find the niche that is right for you.
