TODAY we welcome Francois Mukendi who is visiting us from Kinshasa DR Congo.  He is pastor of the Bondeko congregation in the Mennonite Church of Congo and will have the message.


CELEBRATE - We are so excited: we have paid off FMC's mortgage. To celebrate, we are planning to "burn the mortgage" at potluck today. Thanks to everyone who contributed the past 2+ years as we have paid it off even more quickly than anticipated. Any outstanding pledges received can be designated to building repairs, the general budget, or the sharing fund.



Gentle Shepherd in French

Gentil berger viens nous conduire

Car nous avons besoin de toi pour nous aider à trouver notre chemin

Gentil berger viens nous nourrir

Car nous avons besoin de votre force au jour le jour


Il n'y a pas d'autre, nous pouvons nous tourner vers

Qui peut nous aider à affronter un autre jour

Gentil berger viens nous conduire

Car nous avons besoin de toi pour nous aider à trouver notre chemin

THANK YOU to everyone who helped out at the Neighborhood Garage Sale, setting up/tearing down tables, and manning the food table.  We had the most sellers yet, with 29 booths.  The weather warmed up, and it was a great success.  Thanks again!   - Outreach Committee
