Our Community

St. Paul Mennonite Fellowship values its life together. In addition to our worship, we strive to find creative ways to support one another, to stand for peace and justice in our world and to enjoy each other. Following are some of the ways we form community.

A Community of Support

SPMF Buddies

Historically, each child in the Fellowship has been connected to an adult "buddy" who is committed to being an ally, friend and mentor to that child. The community wishes to be a "village" for our children, providing them with adults who care about them, take interest in them, play with them and with whom they can talk candidly.

Mutual Support

We are a close-knit group of people. We strive to support one another in our spiritual journeys and in our day to day joys and sorrows. We strive to create a community of mutual support and hospitality.

A Community of Service

Loaves and Fishes

SPMF supports Cherokee Park United Church in their effort to serve dinners to the homeless and hungry at St. Matthew's School.

Peace Bridge Vigil

Every Wednesday at 4:30-5:30 p.m. there is a peace vigil on the Lake Street Bridge over the Mississippi. Members of SPMF often join this march.


We support and encourage our members to participate in volunteerism as they are able to do so. Our members volunteer with Mennonite Disaster Service, on nonprofit Boards, at the Mennonite Relief Sale, in environmental projects, in creating care packages and relief kits for Mennonite Central Committee, with Brethern Mennonite Council for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Interests, with PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays), Neighborhood House Food Shelf, and many other organizations.
