“True evangelical faith cannot lie dormant...

It clothes the naked,
it feeds the hungry,
it comforts the sorrowful,
it shelters the destitute,
it serves those that harm it,
it binds up that which is wounded,

it has become all things to all people.” — Menno Simons

LOCAL OUTREACH

Our Community Involvement


Mennonite Community Church is committed to meeting the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of individuals and families in our surrounding community. Our goal is to show Christ's love and bring peace and justice to those whose lives we touch.

Our congregation is directly and indirectly involved in numerous community advocacy programs. Besides providing direct financial support through our annual budget, we also provide indirect support by offering cost-free use of our facilities. We believe that partnering with other local faith-based agencies, together working at bringing peace and social justice to our community, is a vital part of our ministry.

We are a member of  PICO National Network  and are active in the Fresno area through its local federation, Faith in Community. Several of our members are active in  Peace Fresno. We have several members who volunteer at service agencies like Love, Inc. (Love in the Name of Christ), and West Coast MCC.

Mennonite Community Church is involved with three main local outreach programs:

arrow Our church sponsors a Mennonite Voluntary Service Unit here in Fresno. Our MVS volunteers — typically 2-4 individuals per year serving 1 or 2-year assignments — serve at minimal cost to local agencies such as United Cerebral Palsy of Central California, Central California Mennonite Residential Services, Boys & Girls Clubs of Fresno County, and VORP (Victim Offender Reconciliation Program).

arrow We also operate a program called CARE (Community, Advocacy, Resources, Empowerment). Volunteers regularly distribute food twice per month... once for the Community Food Bank, and once from our own Food Pantry. For more information about CARE click on the link to the right.

arrow Finally, Mennonite Community Church sponsors a community garden, a program administered by FIRM (Fresno Interdenominational Refugee Ministries). Click on the link to the right to learn more about our connection to Asian gardeners from our community.
