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.
This Sunday - June 26, 2016
"What a Blessing”
We will be blessing the new bench given to us in memory of Georgi Olivas. She died in 2003 at the age of 13 after a seven-year battle with a brain tumor.
Our fellowship gave support to her and her family. Her mother Lisa had a tree planted in her honor and now a bench sits under that tree courtesy of the Olivas family.
Lisa and the family will share about Georgi and together we will recall her witness, and about the special way God welcomes children.
“Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” — Mark 10: 15
Taking a Cue from Jesus
Here at FCMF, we take our cue from Jesus’ statement:
"What you do to the least of us, you do to me."
As a result, we have 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 provide shower and laundry facilities, and kitchen and dining space to FFH families and to the Ft. Collins Homeless Coalition.
We work tirelessly with the City Council, local shelters, and faith organizations to bring the issues of homelessness, affordable housing, and necessary services to the public eye.
Worship 'Round The Table
This summer, our “Worship Around the Table” series will consist of a variety of informal Sunday gatherings.
During these gathering we will eat brunch, sing songs, and participate in discussions around the table. Our discussion and speakers focus on the Biblical passage chosen by Mountain States Mennonite Conference (Luke 1:76-79) regarding "living into a way of peace."
We will examine walking into peace by paying attention to the edges of our communities, by confessing what is no longer working for us, and by seeking new directions. We will also look at real-life practices for walking into peace.
