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.
Sunday, January 15, 2017: "The Dream is Still Alive!"
Today we celebrate the life of the Reverend Dr Martin Luther King. Instead of a sermon, we present a Readers Theater using the great words of MLK.
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
— Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable... Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.” — Martin Luther King, Jr.
Join the MLK March!
If you want to join the MLK March and walk with others from FCMF, please arrive at church at 10:35 am on Monday, January 16.

The Season of Ephiphany
Epiphany means “to make manifest.” By the fourth century, Epiphany was an important annual celebration for the church. It is a season when we see Jesus’ divine mission revealed when the magi visit him, and then we remember his baptism, miracles, ministry, and his call for us to follow.
“People are like stained - glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.” — Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Taking a Cue from Jesus: Hosting the Homeless
We take our cue from Jesus’ statement:
"What you do to the least of us, you do to me."
As a result, Fort Collins Mennonite Fellowship has been deeply involved with Faith Family Hospitality (FFH) program for the past 3 years. This program involves churches who provide food, shelter, and fellowship to homeless families on a rotating basis. Our sanctuary is the FFH Day Center for families in the program and our Sunday School rooms are bedrooms for the FFH families who stay with us. We also provide shower and laundry facilities, as well as dinner and breakfast.
