“Why do we need Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion”
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 into our community, helping homeless families in the Faith Family Hospitality program, welcoming homeless individuals who visit us for warmth, food, and fellowship, 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.
New GoFundMe for a True Sanctuary for the Homeless
July 17, 2021 -
Donations seem frozen at $3,425! We just added a beautiful mural to our church wall painted by a local artist and installed by our "Homeless Angels." Please tell your friends about our campaign - send them to our GoFundMe site:
NOTE: Our True Sanctuary program made the cover of Anabaptist World Magazine:
In March 2020, during the pandemic, we decided to open our hearts and our church doors to house some of the most vulnerable members of the homeless community.
Our church is now a true sanctuary for the homeless and those who inhabit our church are the informal caretakers of our property. They are also our homeless "outreach angels" who serve the homeless community at large, by providing showers, meals, and much needed advocacy.
We need your help to keep the lights and heat on, the hot water running, as well as purchase food, personal hygiene items, clothing and more for the homeless community.
Did you miss last week's Service?
If you missed the July 11, 2021 Service, "Bread and Beauty: Dedication of Cory Quigley's Mural," here is a short recap.
We are called to feed and clothe the poor, to meet their physical needs for survival. But what about the spiritual and emotional needs that are also just as important. Beauty and bread must go hand in hand.
Last Sunday, Cory Quigley talked about her mural that she gifted us with and shared her hope and inspiration!
Read this the passage in Matthew and you'll see why she chose to paint the mural!
25 “That’s why I tell you: Don’t fret about your life - what you’re going to eat or what you’re going to drink - or about your body - what you’re going to wear. There is more to living than food and clothes, isn’t there? 26 Take a look at the birds in the sky: they don’t plant or harvest, or store away into grain bins. Yet your heavenly Parent feeds them. Aren’t you at least as valuable to God as them? 27 And which one of you can add a single hour to your life by fretting? 28 Take clothing for instance, take note of how the wild lilies grow: they don’t toil and they never spin. 29 Yet let me tell you, even Solomon at the height of his glory was never decked out like one of them. 30 So if God dresses up the grass in the fields, which is here today and gone tomorrow - remember, God cares for you even more…” (Scholar’s Version)
