"The Peace of God"
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
Sept. 17, 2021 -
We are still at $4,265. Only $735 needed to get us to the half-way point of $5,000!
We have reached out to other Mennonite Churches in the Rocky Mountain Mennonite Conference, but we NEED YOUR HELP!
Keep spreading the word. Please tell your friends about our campaign - send them to our GoFundMe site:
NOTE: We're in the 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 a Previous Service?
If you missed the September 12, 2021 Service, "Our Organic Connection to the One" here is a short recap.
Annie discussed how we experience our organic connection to the One through Jesus' vine and branches metaphor. We sat outside, enjoying the sunlight, rain, and trees while Annie discussed the exquisiteness of "being," something all of nature does so well, but humans . . . maybe not so well.
We learned how important it is to sit outside in nature and appreciate the beauty around is. It is what keeps us grounded in God's love.
Our minds are too eager to soak up messages of doom, gloom, fear, and anxiety from the media. Instead, let's squeeze out all that negativity, like dirty water from a sponge, and then soak up God's presence in nature around us.
1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinegrower. 2 He removes every branch in me that bears no fruit. Every branch that bears fruit he prunes to make it bear more fruit. 3 You have already been cleansed by the word that I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in me as I abide in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me. — John 15:1-4
