Job 37:5-7

God thunders wondrously with his voice;
he does great things that we cannot comprehend.
For to the snow he says, ‘Fall on the earth’;
and the shower of rain, his heavy shower of rain,
serves as a sign on everyone’s hand,
so that all whom he has made may know it.

What a beautiful snowfall we had here in Hillsboro yesterday. Here are a few of my favorite captures. (Becky Gage – FMC Secretary)

Palm Sunday

Early in the service we all had the option to walk forward with our shoes, and leave them at the altar for the duration of our worship service. This followed the pattern of our Lenten services, where one from among us has walked up and left their shoes at the altar as a sign of readiness to follow Jesus, who goes before us.

Greetings to and from Chad, Africa

Relationships between Christian churches in Chad is very important since it is a minority religion (10% of Chadians are Protestants). Each Sunday in worship, greetings will be heard from other congregations. The visiting person stands up and says, “The church in ____ sends you greetings in the name of Jesus.” In this spirit, our church, First Mennonite Church in Hillsboro, Kansas sent greetings to this church, Evangelical Church of Chad in Mongo, with the French words which were colored by our children here at FMC. The words say, “Grace and Peace in the name of Jesus.” In so many ways, the wonderful people of this Mongo church sent greetings to us as a congregation. They will be praying for us.





Here is our FMC greeting, in Mongo, Evangelical Church of Chad. Eglise Evangelique du Tchad (EET). This congregation greets us and prayed for us as well.

MCC Meat Canning

FMC had a great turnout for meat canning this past week. Photos are posted below and on our Facebook page. Put this event in your file for next November. It is a great way to participate in “meeting” the needs of the world and having time to visit with other church groups in our area.

Joel saves the day!

What would we do without Joel? We don’t want to find out! Here is a pic of what it took for Joel to save the day when our old sound system didn’t want to cooperate. Thanks, Joel. FMC appreciates everything you do to keep us up and running!

Mission Sunday: October 15, 2017

“Sent to Encourage Mission and the Multiethnic Church” was Mission Sunday’s theme which our guest speaker, Joe Sawatzky of Mennonite Mission Network shared with us.

Joe served in South Africa with his wife, Anna, both under Mennonite Mission Network. Joe was “a Bible teacher and friend to pastors” in the areas of biblical education and leadership development for members of African Initiated Churches. Joe and Anna have four sons, Isaac, Moses, Levi and Jesse.

As per tradition, the FMC congregation was asked to bring a decorated cake to the carry-in inspired by the theme this year, “Love is a Verb”. Look below to see some of the beautiful cakes provided by our FMC family.
