Unless the Lord builds the house,
They labor in vain who build it;
Unless the Lord guards the city,
The watchman stays awake in vain.
Welcome to the South Lawrence Mennonite Church website.
We are a church who believes that "unless the Lord builds the church, we labor in vain." Our sights are on the Lord. It is on the foundation of Jesus Christ that we place our hope and our trust. Everything else is sinking sand.
As we lift up the name of Christ, He will draw all men to Himself. Not by our strivings, not in our efforts but by the Spirit of God.
As we wait on the Lord He will lead us, through His Word He will guide us and by His Spirit He will empower us to be the men and women He has called us to be. Apart from God we can do nothing, but with Him nothing is impossible.
But without faith it is impossible to please Him,
for he who comes to God must believe that He is,
and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
