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, February 19, 2017: "Joseph the Son of Jacob: Can Good Really Come from Evil?"
This Sunday we’ll hear a story about sibling rivalry, parents picking favorites, slavery, lust, dreams, dramatic forgiveness, and ultimate restoration. In the end not only are brothers restored to one another, but an entire extended family is saved!
“The work of community, love, reconciliation, restoration is the work we cannot leave up to politicians. This is the work we are all called to do. ”
— Shane Claiborne

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
Stop Criminalizing Homelessness!
We take our cue from Jesus’ statement:
"What you do to the least of us, you do to me."
The City of Fort Collins is considering an ordinance that makes it illegal to “sit” in Old Town for more than one hour – of course, we know this ordinance is aimed at the homeless, not at the rest of us with homes! This ordinance is downright wrong. There are plenty of other ways to help those without homes, rather than kicking them when they are down and forcing them to “keep on walking.” Here are some important events where you can exercise your opposition to making homelessness a crime.
NOTE: If you cannot attend these events, PLEASE send an email urging Council to vote NO on the ordinance. The email address to use is: email@example.com
