FMC had a great turnout for meat canning. 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 “meating” the needs of the world and having time to visit with other church groups in our area.
We enjoyed a whole new ministry this year! While we sold the traditional peppernuts, we also opened our building for ethnic food and prayer. Verenika, Dale’s baked sausage and cherry moos were sold a la carte while the sanctuary was open for prayer and meditation. Items sold out quickly, leaving us to conclude that it was a blessing to serve our community in this w ay!

Reflective Writing – Worship
We encourage you to consider being one of 50 people who will contribute reflective writing for the celebration of 50 years of our FMC Building. This will be scanned and placed on the FMC website. We invite 50 people (or more!) to submit writing of no more than 250 words. Writers should have some connection to First Mennonite Church. Writers can be alive or deceased. Contributions can be in the form of poetry, faith memories, anecdotes, or any expression you think would be meaningful in a general or specific way to our FMC family. Contributions can be turned in as hard copy, or preferably, sent electronically to the FMC Church Office with the name of the writer included. Written pieces will be posted on the FMC Website, or possibly some other kind of printed format. Thank you!
Recipes – Hospitality
Do you have a recipe that you “always” bring to carry-ins? Is there a recipe from someone in past for which a certain recipe was well known? Or, do you have a good recipe for a large group to share? Do you have ANY recipe you would like to share? J
Anyone from the FMC community is welcome to bring such recipes to the FMC office. It will be scanned and posted on the FMC website as part of our celebration of 50 years in our current building. If there is an FMC connection, please include that explanation with the recipe. Thank you!
Photos – FMC Church Office
Do you have a photo of FMC life? This is the time to send photos to the church office to add to our collection of historic photos on our FMC website. You can scan the photo yourself and send it electronically, or you can speak directly to Becky Gage about the photo. Please help us identify the photo, including your name and an explanation of the photo, including identification of people in the photo. Thank you!
