“Obedience to God Trumps Human Leaders”
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 Mountain States 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 opened our hearts and our church doors to house some of the most vulnerable members of the homeless community.
Now,, more than 1-1/2 years later, our church is 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.

Mennonites trace our heritage to a 16th century movement known as Anabaptism. Those early “re-baptizers” lived and many were soon martyred due to their beliefs.
Peter’s words would have been most certainly on their lips. “We must obey God rather than any human authority,” as they stood trial before government prosecutors. But this passage is just as valid today as it would have been in both the first and 16th centuries.
