While at Lockport Mennonite Church in Stryker, Ohio, Flat Menno had the chance to meet with some of the children and youth of the congregation. During Lent, Lockport is using worship materials based on the magazine Leader, following the theme “Upside Down and Inside Out.” Each week during children’s time, the children are invited to learn more about different ways of praying. When Flat Menno visited Lockport, he joined the children in learning about prayer.
Flat Menno also spent time with the youth when they met as part of Lockport’s Life Planning mentoring ministry. All of
the adult mentors are from Lockport. Fifteen of the youth are from the
congregation, and 13 are community youth invited by youth from the congregation.
