Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Lombard Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church USA) is located 18 miles (30 km) west of Chicago in the suburb of Lombard. It was organized on 23 October 1954. For over two years prior to this Mennonite families that had moved to the Chicago area for vocational interests had met in homes for Bible study and fellowship. The charter membership, beginning with 14 members, was closed a year later with 51 members. This included associate members from the Evanston and Elgin I-W units and members of the General Conference Mennonite Church living in the area. Services were held at the church parsonage at 1012 Whitmore Lane, Lombard, and the East Lombard Civic Club Building, Westmore and Division, Lombard, before there was a regular church building. The church was affiliated with the Illinois Mennonite Conference. LeRoy Kennel was the pastor in 1954.

In 2008 the membership was 150; Todd K. Friesen was the Lead Pastor.
