FCMF: Authentic, Compassionate, and Inclusive!
Here at Fort Collins Mennonite Fellowship (FCMF), we practice the "radical inclusivity" of Jesus. This means working with, having compassion for, and getting to know people who, as Jesus said, are the “least of us” and are often on the margins of society.
Whether it’s welcoming sexual and gender minorities in to our community, hosting homeless families in the Faith Family Hospitality program, helping immigrants, or working for a healthcare system that benefits all, we try to walk in the footsteps of Jesus as best we can.
We use our hands to do God's work, focusing on issues of social justice, peace, and helping those in need.

Don't Criminalize the Most Vulnerable!
Did you know there are more than 300 people homeless on any given night in our city and at least 60-75 more homeless people than shelter beds? People are being turned away from our two shelters with nowhere to sleep except outdoors. Yet when they do this, the city fines them $100!
Steve Ramer, members of FCMF and Peak Community Church, and Cheryl Distaso of the Homeless Coalition continue meeting with members of City Staff and our local shelters about the homeless in our City. We want to make sure they all have shelter and transportation to shelter during our coldest weather. We also want an emergency ban on the City's outdoor camping ordinance.
Citations for camping are meant as a deterrent , but when there is no other option because the shelters are full, the citations serve no purpose! Let the homeless sleep through the night without fear of police waking them and telling them to move on, or fining them.
Contact your Council Member and tell them you want a temporary emergency ban on camping. People have to sleep! Until shelters expand or more housing becomes available, people are in crisis.
Easter: A Season of Resurrection
On Easter morning Jesus pulled off the unexpected by rising from the dead — our Lenten journey ultimately leads us to an empty tomb.
Love won and will always win. Life, not death, is the final reality. Hope, not despair is the final word, and resurrection is the primary motif of our lives.
Easter is not merely a single day in the church calendar but a season that will last 40 more days. It is a journey from Jesus' resurrection to his ascension — a time for us to walk in the present reality as well as the future hope that we too can be resurrected.
