Over the years Neffsville Mennonite Church has been involved in many outreach endeavors. From Australia to Argentina, Africa to Mexico, Uruguay to Haiti, Peru and beyond, we are involved in spreading the love of Christ around the globe. We work through Mennonite Disaster Service (MDS), Mennonite Central Committee (MCC), Mennonite Mission Network (MMN), Serving With Appalachian People (SWAP), Center for Student Missions (CSM), and Habitat for Humanity locally and globally.
Four times a year, when a month has a fifth Sunday, we gather for breakfast at 8:00 AM in the Fellowship Hall, followed by sharing from missionary teams.
Due to the pandemic many of our ministries have been reduced to what we can do remotely as opposed to in-person interaction. This does not mean that the needs are any less! Previously you donated over $9,000 to the local Power Packs ministry. Really well done! Find below several more opportunities to help make an impact both locally and internationally.
Food Boxes: For years Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) and Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) have teamed up to assemble and distribute thousands of food boxes to churches in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Virginia to help impact their local communities. Normally we fill the boxes and deliver them to the ACC Fall Assembly gathering. This year is different. They are instead asking for financial donations, allowing them to purchase the food in bulk, assemble the boxes, and distribute them as before. If you would like to contribute, you may do so by sending you donation to the church, designated as “Food Boxes”. Thank you! Deadline: Oct. 18, 2020
If you’ve attended any of the Mission Sharing times over the past number of years you have probably heard of Bob Unruh and his close connections in Peru. They, like the rest of the world, have been impacted by the pandemic, which is hitting the poorest communities extra hard. Bob has already sent $1,500 from the Peru Fund to three ministries in the area to help feed families in urban areas as well as the most remote parts of the country, but the need is great. Would you consider helping feed families in some of the neediest areas of Peru? David and Leidi Ayala, and Julio Chiang, our good friends on the ground in Peru, will ensure that it makes maximum impact! Send your gift to the church, marked “Peru”. Thank you. Deadline: November 1, 2020.
